I suppose I shouldn’t suggest they flood the basement to give them a bigger pool, eh?
I’ve never seen a house here with a basement! Fact! I’ve also never seen a house here with an attic either! We do have manholes to get up into the roof, and maybe store things up in the roof rafters, but basements and attics are definitely not a common household structure down here.
Funny, with the heat you guys get down there in summer, you’d think someone would’ve figured out it’s cooler underground… Most every house here has a basement, though it is usually only older houses which have an attic. Houses in the Southern U.S. tend to lack a basement though.
I’m sure Jacks appreciates a warm bath after getting that cold water dumped on him in the previous strip!
Towns out in the drier, arid areas of the interior, such as Coober Pedy and Oodnadatta I believe have many houses with rooms excavated out of the ground to keep cool, yes, but no, otherwise we’re all built above ground.
It’s about positioning the alignment of your windows and stuff down here. 🙂
