Eco-Friendly Hobbit House Built From Scratch For Just $220

Source: Good Home Design


If money wasn’t already a heavy burden, building a home nowadays also entails a lot of bureaucracy to deal with. With the concept of reducing costs wherever it is possible, the almost fairytale-like home you can see in the photos is a beautiful example of what you can achieve with a little bit of imagination and architectural courage. Not many people will hurry up and help you build a cob house. But a retired art teacher from Oxfordshire, Michael Buck, managed to build a hobbit house with $220 and no harm to the environment. The materials used are all local and no papers or documents were necessary for raising the structure because it is considered a summer house. You might say all of these came at a price in terms of comfort: the hobbit house has no running water or electricity and the heating is provided by a woodstove. Watch the video to find out how this environmentally-friendly home was raised. It is really inspiring!




After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.

Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.

Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
