My only suggestion would be Mr. Google.  If you can't find anything online ... then perhaps from the resource you heard about Earth Shelter homes. 

After I posted and searched Mr. Google ... there is info online. 

http://www.earthshelter.com/ is #1 on Mr. Google ... there is more.

Sounds like the troglodyte homes built in caves in the sides of some French mountains!  Haven't seen anything like that around here - maybe they need their own HGTV show.

Ed the last time I've been in an earth sheltered home was back in the last 80's in Vail Co area.  As Kathleen mentioned - google is probably you're best source.

Check" Mother Earth News". They aren't really popular and only a small % of buyers would be interested in my opinion. Also, comps and appraisals might be difficult. Also check" Straw Bale Homes".

I have sold a couple and they were both built by the owners. They were very difficult to get appraised when they sold so comping could be difficult.
