Solar panels are being used for lighting, music and computing while water is attained by gravity from a nearby spring. This Hobbit house green home has been maticulasly planed.

“This kind of building is accessible to anyone” says Simon Dale. All i know is if i had a hammer, chainsaw and 1 inch chisel, I’m not sure it will be enough for me to create this dreamy Lord of the Ring home, but i do respect and am quite in owe of Dale’s self belief and perseverance.
All i can say is: Wow.
