Absolutely beautiful woodland house in Sussex, UK, built with timber and strawbales, finished with adobe. This is such an inspiration....

A HOBBIT HOME IN WALES -
STONE, MUD, GRASS ROOF
Bron: The reasons these people have for going small are mainly about money... that's a shame... but so true. I look forward to the day when money isn't an issue... and there's wood trees in family domains so people can build a nice spacious houses : ) In the meantime, staying small and going green sure does save you money : )
Yeah I must admit Megs, I tend to be a Big House girl... but if you've got land freehold why set yourself up with a huge mortgage for the sake of putting a mansion on it. I could actually feel myself live in the dome above... very hobbit'esque and cute... good for a 5'1" person like myself !! However, the Man is a dwarf at 6'4" and I know he likes the high-roofed villa i'm in at the moment. Still... with being able to build oneself, there could be a cute little dome a steep-gabled prairie cottage and still come in under budget !! :D
