Fairytale House in Wales

Thursday, September 22, 2011

This fairytale-like home belongs to a sweet family of four and it's located on a hillside in Wales. After realizing that the pressure of paying a huge mortgage was just too much, Simon Dale decided to take matters into his own hands and built a home for his family from scratch. Literally! In little over four months, tons of creativity, natural materials and only £3000 he created a wooden, eco-hobbit home straight from The Lord of the Rings. Isn't that incredible? Bravo! xo

P.S: You can read more about the house on Simon's website.

Isn't it Vintch? You should also check out both of the videos where he talks about why they decided to go for it.

Also, I love this:
"It's fun. Living your own life, in your own way is rewarding. Following our dreams keeps our souls alive".

beautiful! sometimes I dream of living in the woods, would be amazing! My neighborhood is so loud.. Every night I hear cars passing, people talking too loud and every time I think "Would love to live in the woods" Maybe a weekend cabin would be perfect for me!

This is beautiful! Straight out of a fairytale! All that wood adds amazing architectural details.

Monica, this place would make a fantastic weekend home for sure. Sorry about your neighborhood. Mostly our street is lovely but for the past 4 months our upstairs neighbor is renovating his place and it's really loud. I hope he will be done soon..Uff

Poppies and Sunshine, I'm totally with you on that. I love all things wood.
