In some parts of rural Mexico, it is amazing how cool they keep the main room simply by digging the floor down about 18 inches.

I think a below-ground system would be awesome.

When I was a kid and living at my parents house - they have a house on a foundation - I could keep snakes under their house below ground level, and in summer the air temps under there never got above 80. The effectiveness of the ground as an insulator cannot be argued.

And yes, cages on the garage floor are a bit of a pain to service. I actually laid down a run of utility carpet so I can lay on that while my arms are reaching inside cages. Awe, the stuff we do for this hobby.
