I know that I do!
Me, too. But one with indoor plumbing - we get some snow here and it's not a lot of fun trekking outside.
Maybe the biggest problem is how to fasten down that satellite dish though.
And where to park the SUV.
That's friggin' sweet. I'd love to stay there just for a night or two.
Isn't it? I'd live there if I could move the bath indoors and put in a septic.
He could make a fortune if he built a small community of say 10-12 of them, and rented them out for holidays. I bet he could charge silly prices too, probably $1000 a week, city folk love to experience different ways of life - especially when they are going through a midlife crisis!
I bet you're right and I bet he could actually charge even more than that.
I'll bet he could, too. Fancy, weird theme type motel rooms are going for $300 per night and up here in podunk Boise. Tarzan rooms, Swiss Family Robinson, etc.
Put some amenities in them (running water, TV, Hot tub, an outside fire pit, etc.) and I'll bet you could get at least that. It really is neat.
It's so cute. Not sure I'd want to live in one... I have seen a similar style of construction in the Southwest, using earthen walls and roofs, and straw bales for wall insulation. Reminds of me of tales of "soddies" on the prairies way back when.
It's beautiful. My only concern is whether he got or needed planning permission for it. I hope he's OK and it can stay.
Er yes. Hi! Have I been away?
edit: I haven't
I love it ! Must visit them if we get back to Wales next year ! Be great to have one for if we stop traveling with our caravan !
Absolutely I want one! Like wilderness, though, indoor plumbing is a must-have. The universe has been sending me little cosmic nudges about eco-friendly structures here lately, so between your excellent Hub and Brie Hoffman's Hub on Cob cottages...hmm. Thanks for a really neat read!
That is pretty awesome. I cant believe that he did it all for 3,000. Besides the indoor plumbing issue, I wonder how well it's insulated and keeps the heat in. Although surrounded by woods, he probably could keep a fire going all day long if he had to.
What a great home! I can't imagine someone building it in our neck of the woods (we need to go down six feet to get below the frost line), but I love the architecture of it! I think I would want more than one bedroom, though - I love my kids, but I don't really want to share a bedroom with them...
I love it! It looks so comfortable and cozy! I can imagine curling up on a sofa with a large mug of hot chocolate Not sure if I'd live there permanently, but definitely for a few days at least!
cute, and looks great for a short visit, but - long-term, I must be spoiled but I like running water and a flusher
I know some people who have an underground home. It's very energy efficient and looks like any other home inside. It has windows on the east and southern sides with a couple of periscope type skylights in certain rooms to allow sunlight and outside views.
I believe living underground will be more common in the future because of the energy savings these type residences offer.
There might be other reasons for it happening too.
You won't find much of that in Europe, we are a little short on space, so the only way is up!
What we are seeing more of however is roof gardens (green spaces on the roof), and in London - which is really crowded of course - people are extending underground when they reach their development limits.... like this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article … -home.html
You got me, lol! I do WANT one! With the indoor plumbing, as others have mentioned. It reminds me of one of the creatures home in Lion, Witch, & The Wardrobe. I don't rememeber which one either the beaver's or that guy that was half horse and half man. I never saw Lord of the Rings to relate it that way.
