A professional snowboarder in California figured out a genius way to get closer to the slopes. Mike Basich built this tiny 225-square-foot home in the middle of his 40-acre property near Truckee, Calif. He told Laura Ling from “Going off the Grid” about how he built his new digs by hand. “It took me five years — two and half years to do all the rock work. I think I moved about 175 ton of rock.”

13 Hobbit Houses. You Won’t Believe That People Actually Live In. | Daily source for inspiration and fresh ideas on Architecture, Art and Design -Earth House, Switzerland
Switzerland. Swiss architecture firm Vetsch Architektur has built real life Hobbit Homes in Dietikon, Switzerland, which they refer to as the Earth House Estate Lättenstrasse. Contrasting to the conventional single houses, the estate features free agricultural land towards the south of the lot with a small artificial lake towards the front. Apart from gifting much needed greenery to the estate, the agricultural land also allows the homeowners to cultivate fruits, vegetable and herbs organically.
Earth Homes on an Artificial Lake – By Vetsch Architecture
whaaaa This Is The Hobbit in Real Life Casey Chan We've found the Shire and it exists in Switzerland. Just looking at these houses, built by Peter Vetsch, hidden in the Earth makes you think of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. The Earth Houses are located in Dietikon, Switzerland and is deeply focused on being energy-efficient. Because the homes are built into the mounds of earth, they have natural insulation that "allows them to use only a third of the energy
Main dome and four niches, very low cost. Can be repeated and joined together to form larger homes and courtyard houses. Very thick walls have significant thermal mass, which reduces heating and cooling costs. It also provides sound insulation, structural integrity, fire and pest protection. Designed with the sun, shade and wind in mind for passive cooling and heating. Wind-scoop can be combined with a rated furnace unit. Solar energy and radiant heating may be incorporated.

There are over 500 recognized tribes in the USA, each with their own culture. Contrary to popular belief, they do not all live in tipis (mainly because they live in houses now, btw) but the tipi belonged to the plains culture. They are not one homogenous culture, they are each unique, with their own beliefs, stories, and ways of life. I feel like this should not be news....but education is liberation!

Don’t use too many fasteners. One large bolt is better than many screws or nails. You get the same strength but with fewer puncture wounds to the tree. Whenever possible, perch your tree house on top of fasteners rather than pinning beams to the tree. This gives the tree room to move and grow. Even for smaller, lighter tree houses where the load is spread over three or four attachment points, consider using 1-in.- or 1-1/4-in.-diameter lag bolts.

Another type of building is emerging: one that actually heals the scars of its own construction. It conserves rainwater and fuel and it provides a habitat for creatures other than the human one. Maybe it will catch on, maybe it wont. Well see. - Malcolm Wells
