Simon’s Hobbit House in Wales

“You are looking at pictures of a house that Simon Dale built for his family in Wales. It was built by him and his father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends. 4 months after starting they were moved in and cosy. He estimate 1000-1500 man hours and $5000 put in to this point. Not really so much in house buying terms (roughly £60/sq m excluding labour).…”

Simon’s Hobbit House is featured in Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter. Check out the comments on this website: https://ciracar.com/build-a-house-for-less-than-5000
