Extraordinary Off-Grid Hobbit Home in Wales Only Cost £3,000 to Build Simondale Hobbit House – Inhabitat - Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building
Tiny houses, homes built to be super efficient while often operating off the grid, are the new trend. Many people, like Welshman Simon Dale, are rejecting the high price building contractors and architects to take back the design process themselves. The fairy-tale hobbit home pictured above was designed and built into a hillside for less than 5k.

Retired Art Teacher Builds Enchanting Cob House for Just $250! Michael Buck Built This Cob House in England for Just $250 – Inhabitat - Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building
Hobbit House Buck, a 59-year-old retired art teacher from Oxfordshire, built this gorgeous cob house in his garden for a mere £150 (USD $250). Admittedly, it was easier for Buck as the land was already available, and didn't require any special permits as it was considered a summer home, but Buck nevertheless followed some basic principles in the process: he wanted to use only materials that he could find himself, he would use no power tools and it was to cost next to nothing.
Cozy Cob Cottage This fairytale home is built entirely from natural & unwanted materials using ancient building techniques Sand, straw, clay & soil comprise most of the cob house including its thatched roof; reclaimed windows & castoff materials make up the rest. As an ultimate recycling project this home by farmer Michael Buck cost less than $300 to build & only because he had to purchase some of the straw & nails to complete roof The tenant of this tiny cottage pays for rent with milk & cream

Have you seen our album of underground homes yet? There are a lot more around than you realise and the concept actually makes a lot of sense.
A tiny house community, Imagine a series of moss n earthed over hobbit-hole type homes nestled into the hills, so no ones home looks directly into the next house. The structures would generally be improved with salvaged or harvested from the earth materials. Big fire pit/community kitchen at the foot of the hills. Water and wind power sources.

earth-sheltered homes built partially into the ground come with some incredible benefits, like the ability to absorb and regulate heat from the sun for comfort in all seasons. Earth-sheltered homes can be built entirely underground, bermed (covered with earth on one to three sides) or built into a larger hill with just one side open. Earthships and ‘hobbit houses’ are common forms of earth-sheltered homes.
Among the most famous examples of a ‘hobbit house’ is “A Low Impact Woodland Home”, self-built in Wales for about 1000-1500 man-hours (over four months) and £3000. Creator Simon Dale used stone and wood from the property, straw bales covered in plaster for the walls, and lots of reclaimed and salvaged materials like hardwood flooring, doors and windows. The reciprocal roof, covered in plastic sheeting and mud/turf, is surprisingly easy to build and looks incredible.

Awesome place to visit. The building is underground. Underground homes are an attractive alternative to traditionally built homes for some house seekers, especially those who are looking to minimize their home's negative impact on the environment. Besides the novelty of living underground, some of the advantages of underground houses include resistance to severe weather, an exceptionally quiet living space, an unobtrusive presence in the surrounding landscape, and a nearly constant interior temperature due to the natural insulating properties of the surrounding earth. The greatest draw for most, however, is the energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of such houses. Because of the stable subsurface temperature of the Earth, heating and cooling costs are often much lower in an underground house than in a comparable above-ground house. When combined with solar design, it is possible to eliminate energy bills entirely. Initial building costs are also often exceptionally low, as underground building is largely subtractive rather than additive, and because the natural materials displaced by the construction can be recycled as building materials. However, underground living does have certain disadvantages, such as the potential for flooding, which in some cases may require special pumping systems to be installed. Underground living has been a feature of fiction, such as the hobbit holes of the Shire as described in the stories of J. R. R. Tolkien and The Underground City by Jules Verne. It is also the preferred mode of housing to communities in such extreme environments as Australia's Coober Pedy, Berber caves as those in Matmâta, Tunisia, and even Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Underground living is even being considered for the design of a future base on Mars. Completely underground homes need not be considered impractical or unaesthetic any longer. With today's technologies one can direct natural light into living spaces with light tubes. Virtual windows can provide any view one chooses by the use of cameras or internet cam feeds. Even whole walls can display whatever view one wants someday soon (wall-sized flat screen monitors are still too expensive to be widely used), possibly even with live ambient audio added. Also factories and office buildings would benefit too, for many of the same reasons (noise, energy use, security, community aesthetics, save space; park cars and trucks on top of it instead of next to it, etc.). Often, underground living structures are not entirely underground, typically if they are exposed on one side when built into a hill. This exposure can significantly improve interior lighting, although at the expense of greater exposure to the elements.
Thatched roofs, as seen in this adorable example, are one of the hallmarks of storybook homes. Thatching methods are used all over the world but are most closely associated with the countryside of the United Kingdom. Over 250 roofs in Southern England have coats of thatch that were applied over 500 years ago!
