For those of you who have been following my posts on the progress of construction of a neighborhood “Mystery Building”, and who thought the mystery was solved, there is more!
Yes, we know it will be a home. Around these parts, home is generally referred to as the “homeplace,” (all one word) and this is definitely going to be someone’s homeplace in rural Virginia. We know this because a friend went over and asked what the building would be!
“So, what’s the big mystery NOW?” you ask. “I mean, the building looks a bit on the odd side, but so what? We know it’s someone’s home.”
Well, one day I was merrily on my way to town and not thinking of the Mystery Building. After all, I know it’s someone’s homeplace now, so why dwell on the odd little dwelling anyway?
But, I cannot resist glancing in that direction to monitor progress and when I saw it from a distance I gasped in awestruck shock. WHAT are they doing NOW?!!!
What does it look like to you?
They are covering the back and the roof with DIRT!
Now I am going to look up things on the internet about landlocked housing.
Is their homeplace going to be underground?
Will they plant a garden on top?
Does this explain all the smokestacks and domes?
The first article I found in my search gives some very good clues about Underground Homes! Check out the article below. The second article below is my own first post, when the “homeplace” emerged as an ongoing mystery.
