Hello.. would anyone know why I could get typical R values of earth fill? I am looking into the feasability of replacing the thermal insulation of a couple feet of earth with some sort of insulation.... this would be for the roof of a buried concrete structure. We could then try to reduce the amount of earth fill on top of the structure. thanks in advance!
