Hobbit Home

Low Impact Woodland Home

Simon Dale built a truly amazing Low Impact Woodland Home for his family which is dug into the hillside. The building process took nearly 1500 man hours and cost only £3000. The main tools used are a chainsaw, a hammer and a one inch chisel.

The used materials are mainly natural and the house has a compost toilet, solar panels, a naturaly cooled fridge and fresh spring water that goes into the home without the need for a pump. These features reflect the maximum regard for the environment Simon had in mind before and while building the house.

Take a look at the plans and a gallery of the whole building process.
