To add passive cooling to the house you can utilize what are sometimes called “Geo-coupled thermal tubes”, simple pipes or passages below ground where hot air is cooled before entering the shelter....SO AWESOME!

Passive Thermal Cooling. I wonder if it's possible to do something similar for a Tiny House. This is pretty neat for me since my current house plans have a shed roof like this.

Passive Cooling: Rock Wall. A Natural Thermostat: "Large rocks squeezed into together by 'wood shelves' insulate the South face of the house. The rocks absorb the heat during the day lowering the solar gain. At night the rocks give heat back into into the air as the temperature outside drops. The rock wall and the desert climate work in concert to passively cool the house."

Earth Tubes passive heating/cooling system instead of A/C or heating. My dad has told me about this before. I want this in my home if I can talk Josh into it.
