The technology for these Magic Green Home designs draws from various methods of earth construction and stabilization, such as the superadobe and that of geotextiles. Composite ducts and channels for water pipes, electrical wiring and mechanical ventilation ducts can also be added to the shell of the home design at any point. The trick with this type of housing construction is to achieve the adequate amount of ventilation and water-proofing, which these homes address in a new way by creating strong, waterproof, modular inner shells that structurally collaborate with the earth.
