What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Earth sheltering is the architectural practice of using earth against building walls for external thermal mass, to reduce heat loss, and to easily maintain a steady indoor air temperature. Earth sheltering is popular in modern times among advocates of passive solar and sustainable architecture, but has been around for nearly as long as humans have been constructing their own shelter. House stays cool in summer without A/C and warm in winter without heater. House has water well and solar water heating.
