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!

This is a one-of-a-kind off-grid tiny house by Elevate Structure.

From the outside you’ll notice is resembles a treehouse, doesn’t it? Even more interesting, it’s literally a living house because of the live plant siding.

The base is just 40 sq. ft. which minimizes the impact this micro home has on the earth is sits on. This area can be used for rainwater storage or even as a drive through in a commercial setting. Pretty interesting, right?

The upper level is highly customizable and can range anywhere between 256 sq. ft. and 800 sq. ft. depending on what you need. Currently the company offers six different designs.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

A desert paradise near Joshua Tree, California with two dome homes and a swimming pool. Experience peace and quiet at the Dragonfly Desert Retreat.

Here you can stay in either one of these dome homes. Both are completely off grid and solar powered.

The first dome is 20 ft around and is decorated with a unique artistry flare. Inside is a queen bed, full sofa bed, small kitchenette, table with 4 chairs, and plenty of windows.

The adjacent dome is 22 ft. with huge windows however it’s unfinished and has uninsulated walls. It still has 4 comfortable full size sofa beds with huge windows overlooking the views. This dome can be very cold in the winter since it’s not insulated.

The owner, Magdalen Boyd-Wilson says, “Dragonfly is an alternative solar powered, off-the-grid, artistic, architectural and sculptural project that has been and will evolve over the next few years to its completion. As an artist and a designer, with a passion for alternative architecture, Dragonfly Desert Retreat represents a vision perhaps ¾ finished. In 2006, I began designing, building and living here for 4 years full time, with much fewer conveniences than it now has. While I am still working to complete the vision and make it more and more comfortable, the setting allows one to experience the pioneering spirit, and feel a deep connection to the exquisite natural surroundings.” 

Please enjoy this desert dome retreat below.
