Since 1982, Ralph Smoot and his son Conrad have built 75 underground and concrete homes in 7 states. Some are designed so that they are partially or totally underground. Others are completely on the surface, but look almost indistinguishable from conventional homes. They resist the elements in ways most homes never can, and compare well in price.

These homes result in savings unheard of in any other type of building. These homes benefit your health and security like no other structure can or has. Some concrete homes are over 5,000 years old.

Concrete homes are: Termite Proof • Fire Resistant • Tornado Resistant • Hurricane Resistant
