The Hobbit House

The hobbit house in Wales is a classic in alternative, low-impact housing projects. Two men, four months, house finished!

“This is a house I built for our family in Wales. It was built by myself and my father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends. 4 months after starting we were moved in and cosy.”

~ Simon Dale

A few more interesting details about the house: The fridge is cooled by air coming underground through foundations, the house uses solar panels for lighting, music and computers, it gets water by gravity from a nearby spring, it collects roof water in a pond, for gardening etc.

Simon Dale has built a sustainable eco-house for his family without any prior experience in carpentry or architecture.
