A Hobbit's home

I read this piece of news in the Metro today, it made me smile: a family in Wales built a house under a hill, just like a Hobbit's house. The geek I am sometimes (often) with (sometimes) hippy tendencies got envious reading this. Who wouldn't live in a Hobbit's home? You read Tolkien's books and you think that's stuff of fairy tale, modern fiction at best. And yet it is possible. And it looks like it does in fiction. I am not sure how eco-friendly this house really is, but it sure has character. Primitive, yet it seems quite cosy. I have been living in the attic for the last few years (properly in the attic since 2007), it is how I prefer to live, but I do find the idea of living undergrounds, or at least underhill, if there is plenty of light, very appealing.

@Gwen-It is, isn't it?
@The Kid in the Front Row-Hey, thanks for stopping by and commenting! Where did you find my blog? The Metro can have good stories, you need to look closely for them. And when there isn't any, at least you can read Nemi.
@Anonymous-I wish I had a house like that. With a good internet connection, ideally.
