BECKHAM CREEK CAVE LODGE

The Beckham Creek Cave Lodge in Arkansas is a rental property dedicated toward the preservation of natural beauty. The glass front fills the interior with light while connecting the living walls inside to the nature outside. Each private and common room boast the cave’s natural ambience, and the grounds provide adventure in the beautiful Ozark countryside.

IRAN’S CAVE HOMES

Originally built over 700 years ago, the cave homes near Mount Sahand in Iran were carved in the side of the volcanic rock mountains. Now a popular area for hotels and resorts, the cave rooms keep cool during the day thanks to the natural insulation and deflection of solar gain. The interiors are decked with traditional and historical textiles, rugs and pillows for modern comfort.

    There is a cave house like these in Malta. Unfortunately I do not have a photo of it. It is called Gharukasa in Maltese which translated means literally, house and cave!

    Must have been hard putting it together.

    I wonder if they’re any serious flooding problems. How many sump-pumps do they have?
