Hobbit House Heaven
You’re gong to love seeing this authentic Hobbit House in Wales built by Simon Dale of Being Somewhere. It’s a real-life fairytale house in the woods. Simon Dale and his father-in-law built it by hand with basic tools like a chainsaw, hammer and chisel.
Some of the Hobbit House design facts are:
- Dug into a hillside
- The stone and mud from digging were used for the retaining walls and foundations, etc.
- Insulated with straw bales in the floor, walls and roof.
- Fridge is cooled by the air coming underground through foundations.
- Water by gravity from nearby spring.
Now, Being Somewhere has built another hobbit house dwelling called The Undercroft. It has all the charm and low-impact design as The Hobbit House. Check out Being Somewhere for courses, building techniques, design tips and more.
