Simon Dale had no carpentry or building experience but he was determined to build a sustainable home for his family in Wales. He set to work, using materials from the land and started to build a tiny home,
Although it wasn’t his intention, the eco-home ended up looking like it stepped off the pages of the Tolkein’s The Hobbit. The Hobbit House took Simon four months to complete. With help from his father-in-law, passers-by and friends, Simon estimates he spent between 1,000 to 1,500 build hours and just under $5000 to finish the home. The final product is pretty amazing!
