"Following Our Dreams Keeps Our Souls Alive."

Simon Dale has built the cutest hobbit house for his family. Amazingly, the whole project only cost him about $4,800 Canadian.
Dale took on the project to see how well he could do following the principles of sustainability. This house is dug into a hillside on the country and so it blends in with its surroundings.
He used stone, wood and straw bails to build, cutting down 30 small trees to create the home's skeleton. It has a sod roof with solar panels to power the computers and other gadgets. A fireplace heats the space.
Verrry cool.
You can read more about how the project took shape and see more of his wonderful photos on Dale's web site.
