What is an earth-sheltered home?

Earthsheltered homes are homes built using soil or substrate of some kind as external thermal mass to provide insulation, and various climate control properties. To put that in plain language, earthsheltered homes use dirt, rock, and vegetation to protect the home from the elements.
