In a previous post I showed some awesome self built hobbit homes, of homes or that type anyway and as cool as they are to have, there are an enormous amount of benefits to having one!
The Main Features Of Hobbit Homes
Hobbit dwellings of the J.R.R Tolkein kind are a kind of medieval style dwelling set underground, made of natural wood and using fire for natural heat if needed. They also seemed to have well fitted old style kitchens and the odd window for natural light. Many of these features are retained in modern hobbit homes as they are actually environmentally and money saving beneficial.
Why do these homes save money?
The main advantage of a hobbit style place is that it is underground. This gives the home an advantage because temperature underground is usually constant no matter what season so the homes benefit from having a good overall temp and need less heating or cooling than conventional homes.
Also you can build these homes for a very low cost and many people around the net are blogging and publishing content to help you build homes like these.
Many green features such as composting toilets can be installed and some innovative features such as underfloor heating powered by the cooking stove have been put into some peoples hobbit homes.
Also they just look really really cool!
