    Default Site lurker from Maine

    I am a retired structural engineer living in Georgetown Maine. I did mostly industrial work, but I am planning on building an underground house so I visit this site because: 1) I find it interesting; 2) I am looking for problems to avoid in the house I am planning, and 3) I am looking for ideas I might incorporate in my design.

    Hello and welcome.

    Good timing about building underground, what with the weather changes we are seeing.

    One problem I hear about underground structures is water leakage from the roof areas. Seems to be a problem area. How deep are you planning to go? I often thought it would be neat to purchase a former military missile silo or other former military bunker.

    Hope you build it up on high ground given rising oceans and tidal surges.

    The value of experience is not in seeing much, but in seeing wisely.
