    Read this post. Shared it with friends. I’m now in the process of trying to convince said friends to build one of these. Then another. Then another. Then a basketball court. Then we’ll buy a horse and start a commune.

    Seriously. I can’t believe how fantastic these houses are. One of the greatest things I’ve seen in a while.

    i’m curious about building codes here in the US–Kentucky specifically. i wonder if we could do here what they’re doing in Wales. i need to check into it, because these houses are simply amazing.

    there’s a whole “Shire community” that’s being developed out in California somewhere. but its uber-costly, not necessarily simple and eco-friendly.
