We are wanting to build a 3k square foot earth-contact home with 2 out-buildings. It's important that it be tornado proof and energy efficiency.  Solar power is also important.  One out-building will be a small 1k sq feet guest house and the second would be a 1k sq work shop.  

We want the buildings to blend into the environment as much as possible. I have included it in pictures samples.

 I currently only have a conceptual architectural drawing for the floor plan of our house.
