    I LOVE this home!! What an amazing feat of engineering. The transformation of something fairly useless into a sustainable housing solution is fantastic. With 20 years dedicated to the project, and such a cleverly understated home above the surface – wow! Well done guys, I am in awe. I have a couple hundred acre property in Australia that I will be using this as inspiration to achieve a similar outcome. Brilliant.

    Very cool facility – would love to explore it.

    But “paranoia?” I think not since the location is no longer secret. A key value of this place would have been its hidden location.

    Here it is on Google maps – took 3 minutes to find:
