    Simon Dale is a photographer by trade, but a hobbit home builder by night. He has an affinity for creating homes that are from natural material, and Dale’s own version of a ‘Hobbit‘ House is just a small residence that has a green roof & is partially underground. The home is entirely sustainable & was built with straw bale walls that are covered in lime plaster. All else has been recycled scraps to craft the wooden roof structure & other elements. The electricity is all gained via solar panels.

a "cob" #house...Cob is a traditional building technique using clay, sand, straw and water- wet enough to shape, yet dry enough to build up without forms. The clay acts as the glue, while the sand gives strength to the mixture and the straw gives the walls tensile strength once hardened into place. It dries to a hardness similar to lean concrete and is used like adobe to create self supporting, load bearing walls. A cob house is essentially monolithic.

Hobbit earth-sheltered house. I read the story of the family that built this in a matter of months. It's incredibly charming inside. I love the idea of going back to a more simple way of living despite the unlikelihood of it happeneing.
