40 years ago we built an earth sheltered home. As some may recall fuel prices were out of sight. I used a Fisher stove and had a wood floor with a crawl space and circulated air through the crawl space. Daughter lives in it now. Sometimes here in Western TN the temp will get to zero and on occasion lower. Most wood I ever used was 2 cords. I could cool the house with a 110 window ac except on the most brutal 100 degree days. We have heavy clay here and I must say I learned a lot about how to seal the walls.
