real-life hobbit house in Wales

Well, the house is real. Apparently there are homo sapiens living in it, not homo hobbituses. From Mail Online:

Our £3,000 Hobbit house: The family home dug from a hillside and built with scraps scavenged from skips

Fed up with huge mortgage payments, Simon Dale decided to take matters into his own hands – literally.

Armed with only a chisel, a chainsaw and a hammer, the 32-year-old moved his family to a hillside in Wales and started digging.

The result is a wooden eco-home – constructed in four months and costing just £3,000 – which would look perfectly at ease alongside the Hobbit houses in The Lord Of The Rings.

By mighty Sauron’s ass, there are pictures:

I would totally live here. As long as there’s cable.

Lots more stunning photos at Mail Online, and see Simon Dale’s own Web site for more info.

(Thanks to Jan for the link.)
