Earth Home in Spring Hill, KS

Point2 just posted a wonderful article on “Extraordinary Homes: Earth Houses” with pictures from some truly extraordinary ones around the world.  They list many of their benefits in the article (which you can read here), including energy efficiency, fire protection, and comfortable humidity levels.

The U.S. Department of Energy likes them for their well-insulated natures, but mentions on their page on earth homes that they can be up to 20% more expensive to build.

Fortunately for you, we have a great option sitting on 3 acres available right now in Spring Hill, KS.  Many refer to it as the “hobbit house,” but it’s certainly much bigger than that.  It has almost 2000 sqft, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and very spacious rooms!  See for yourself:

Happy Veterans Day!

We are so thankful to all the brave men & women who have served our country and defended our rights… not the least of which is the pursuit of the “American Dream” of homeownership!

We are also thankful that our government has developed and maintained the wonderful VA loan program that enables veterans to become homeowners!  This fantastic product enables veterans to purchase a home with 0 money down AND without a monthly PMI payment!  To read more about the program, click here.

If you are interested in applying for a VA loan with a trusted local lender and finding a VA eligible home to purchase, please contact a Crown agent today!
