We have one such home here in Grand Haven, MI. It was built in the '60's ....In fact it was even written up in Popular Science.
The home went up for sale this past summer ( still is on the market ) and I was a hairs breath away from buying it myself.
My suggestion is......do you homework on this one
Slab foundation,,,rubber coated roofing that is covered with 12-18 inches of dirt then grass. NO HVAC systems - most only have electric heat...etc, etc, etc.
I found myself inspecting it as if it were a " normal" home. Nothing should change. Just do your homework on the membrane, etc. I would also suggest not turning in the report at the tie of Inspection on this one. This will give you additional time for any research you might want.
ps...REALLLY check out the wiring and exterior walls for moisture,
Wish I could go with you on this one, I really enjoyed the change!
