House of Hobbits


Photographer Simon Dale has a passion for nature, and decided to build a eco n-friendly home for his family despite his inexperience in architecture and carpentry. The family gained ownership of the land in the woods in return for their care of the area. With the help of his father-in-law who's a builder, their dream home was put together in just 4 months and cost a total of $5,200 only! The house features a lot of sustainable materials, scrap wood for flooring, lime plaster instead of cement, and solar panels to provide power. Building materials aside... you can't help but think of Shrek and Fiona's home in the swamp right?
