Hi
Then forming the structure as a mesh of hollow steel tubes, deep in the ground under the house with circulating water will be an option you can build in to the building structure.
Say the tubes reach under the structure and the frames you se, are hollow steel tubes, with a core of concrete, _but_ with a core with a few standard plastic tubes, providing water flow in the right middle of the frames.
Then you can store summer heat, and release it when you need it, but beside, there are other heat that can be generated with simple termo technikes.
