This is a tiny and cozy off-grid home that is perfectly reminiscent of a Hobbit-like cave.

Outside, you’ll see a curved roof line over two double doors that open wide to make the inside and outside living space one. From the front of the house you have views of a lily-pad-filled pond that includes a wonderful footbridge. The owner says he’s spent 40 years creating the space.

In the center of the circular interior you’ll find a large round table with benches. The ceilings feature amazing stone work and a cozy bed is tucked in the curve of one wall. Exposed wooden beams square off areas of the house. In the kitchen area at the back of the house you can pull down a wooden cabinet door to expose a wine rack. A built-in kitchen chest stands against the wall and looks like a piece of history. You can cook over an elaborate wood-burning stove complete with cast iron dishware, or sit and study at a wooden desk near the front wall. Watch the entire video for a full tour of this tiny abode.

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

In this post I’m excited for you to meet Phil McCabe of Solscape Eco Retreat who we have thanks to Bryce and his team over at Living Big in a Tiny House in New Zealand. Phil and his partner are showing us their two tiny earth dome homes which were built for only $10k and total just 107 square feet each (about 10 square meters).

They were built using earth bag construction over at Solscape which is an eco model community that has been there for almost 12 years now. Their goal is to design and develop models of sustainable living so people like you and me can visit and experience them. These tiny dome homes have fun features like wine bottle windows and 360 panoramic views in a loft with meditation space below. You’ve really just got to see it in the video below to grasp it all.
