01. Heavy rain, high water?

Molehouse disposes of a drainage system that conducts water away.

The Dual Seal protection system of waterproof layer and drainage keeps house dry.

A leakage will show immediately by construction time or not at all. It is a simple test of the construction success.

02. Earthquakes and landslides?

Landslides will not concern you as Molehouse stabilizes the land slope itself.

The earth-sheltered house disposes of a highly resistant construction of beyond the seismic design requirements. In case of earthquake, Molehouse will move in the direction of the ground, unlike a conventional house that will move in the opposite direction. This will cause large cracks to the conventional house, leading to structural damages. There is nothing that could cause such cracks to Molehouse as it moves with the ground. Molehouse stabilizes the land slope and by holding the soil back, it prevents landslides.

The functioning of the house during an earthquake: the house moves with the earth, resulting in minimal damage.

03. Low or high temperatures outside?

Temperature in the house is stable throughout the year. The ground around the house accumulates heat, and already 80 centimetres below it does not freeze and 2 metres below it maintains temperature of about 10 °C.

High or low temperatures will no longer surprise you. The ground surrounding the house protects the indoor climate against the two extremes. In summer, the house accumulates heat but building materials prevent the house from overheating. This applies for summer temperatures between 24 and 30°C.

In winter, walls release the accumulated heat. Moreover, windows help to heat the house, too. The stable indoor temperature without heating is between 16 and 20 ° C. However, two hours of heating per day are enough for 4 people.

04. Wind, falling trees or hail?

Molehouse will protect you from wind, falling trees and other troubles.

There is nothing the strong wind could blow away from the roof as there is nothing but grass that cannot be blown away by even the strongest wind.

If a tree falls on your roof, it will cause no damage as it will only fall on grass that cannot be destroyed.

05. Fire or Lightning?

The soil around the house will protect you against fire.

No flash will touch the house – electric discharge is quenched in the soil on the roof, which protects the house. Therefore, there is no need for lightning conductor and the house is not threatened by fire. Externally, the soil can be burnt only up to bricks. Inside, clay plaster and wall lining prevent fire from spreading.

Fire cannot destroy concrete and therefore concrete basis will remain after fire. You will always have roof over your head.

06. And what about insurance?

Molehouse is covered with earth and can be entered from one side only. It is always easier to secure a house on only one side rather than four.

Insurance companies prefer insuring safe houses, and also give them a better offer. There is less risk of breaking-in by thieves, and only minor damages can be caused in case of natural disasters. Insurance companies reward security.

Whatever happens, you will always have roof over your head in an earth-sheltered house. Even if all hell breaks loose, you will stay warm and dry. Could there be any better shelter for your family? Only Molehouse protects nature from its caprices and offers many other benefits.

A happy home is the one that is safe, that does not require much maintenance and service, and that is designed in harmony with nature. And above all, you have to feel safe inside. Only in this way can you relax and get ready for another nice day.

The drainage system that conducts the water away and provides protection against rain.

The ground around the house protects it against fire.
