Underground Home on Buckner Blvd in Dallas – $200 Electric Bill for Entire Summer | vickiwhitehomes

It is known to almost everyone in east Dallas/ White Rock area as “the underground house.” It’s a completely ‘Green’ house, built just before green living was all the rage. Yet that is exactly what the architect Frank Moreland and home owner were working to achieve. With over 100 tons of reinforced concrete over the dwelling and 1000 tons of earth on top of the concrete, it is not only extremely energy efficient, it is also almost eerily quiet. The summer that temperatures in Dallas soared over 100 degrees for more than 70 days, the total electric bill for June, July and August combined was just over $200.00. Energy efficiency and security are what this home is all about.
