The walls, which are durable and waterproof, are made out of composite laminate materials and then confined by soil. The layer of soil helps insulate the building, keeping it warm in the winter and hot in the summer.

The basic structure can be built in just three days and doesn't require a specific skill set to do so. The buildings can be made as big or as small as desired. And if you're not sure about a home, the building can be used for multiple purposes such as businesses, schools, hotels and more, Green Magic Homes touts.

Once the house is covered with soil, grass or even crops can grow on top of it helping with stormwater management and saving energy.
