you know it,pat.. anything new-or diffrent from the status quo,is feared and shunned-till us "square pegs"trying to fit in a round world-keep showing them,over and over-till they "realise"that the ideas are sound and -in fact-work..! any goverment built building that doesn't take the extra time to put the piping in the floor-before pouring the concrete-is sutch a waste !..and all it would take is the right person signing a law-or act-..the money-energy saved by radiant floor heat-let alone geo-thermal(included in th foundation piers)would save taxpayers how many billions?..one step at a time,i guess..

Kansas. What a great place for tornado proof earth sheltered housing, besides requiring almost no energy for heating and cooling. Government programs ignore this concept, so I doubt that it will even be discussed. Why? I guess because it doesn't cost enough, or is too "non-conformist".
