Welshman builds hobbit home for £3,000 - and this is news?

it's a sign of our Corporate Prison Gulag Planet that a man building his own home in the countryside due to his own ingenuity makes the news.

this is what MAN has always done, buiding a shelter for his family, before the ruthless Land Barons started charging him for the privilege of freedom!

A man has built a hillside home reminiscent of a hobbit house from JRR Tolkien's Lord of the Rings — on a budget of just £3,000.

Simon Dale constructed the woodland home for his family in Wales, taking only four months to fully complete the project with help from his father-in-law. Built with "maximum regard for the environment" it contains a cosy living room, an open-plan kitchen and a split-level bedroom area. The home is also adorned with fairy lights and wooden furniture to complete the look.

"These sort of low-cost, natural buildings have a place not only in their own sustainability but also in their potential to provide affordable housing which allows people access to land and the opportunity to lead simple, sustainable lives," he said.

Oh, it's so nice. I do love small houses and huts. This one is a very beautifull one. I would like to see it in "real life"
