Hobbit House with Amazing Green Roof – VIDEO

Mat and Danielle from Exploring Alternatives went to check out this Hobbit House at the Toits du Monde eco-resort in Nominingue, Quebec after seeing photos of the cabin online.


The green roof has a really unique design that extends all the way down to the ground with leg-like extensions that provide shade in the summer and retain heat in the winter.

The cabin was built with straw bale walls and limestone plaster, and log rafters and support beams. It is completely off-grid. Enjoy!

    When it’s usefulness is outlived, just compost back in to the earth.

    Oh come on, nothing LIKE a hobbit house. At all. A round door and a round window does not a hobbit house make.

      Eric, do tell: What would make it a Hobbit House? Thanks.

    Inside is bigger than I expected. The earth-filled flying buttresses give it a nice stance. That would keep things cool on a hot day. Wonder how well it does in strong winds. Would it launch, kite-like?
