Ever since I read Swiss Family Robinson, as a child, I wanted to live in a tree house. My favorite spot to go was high up in the Dogwood tree that grew beside our old house in Wyckoff, NJ. I still love tree houses and climbing trees.
We've all wanted to live in a hobbit dwelling, with those beautiful round doors leading into a grassy hill. Now a Swiss family has recreated the Shire. They've built an underground house in the Vals region, packed with hobbit style.
