On a smallholding (family farm) near the England/Wales border sits The Dugout: A little cottage, literally dug from the hillside, filled with quirky cut stone floors and charming woodwork (including pulley light switches).

The handmade Chestnut Master bed sits in the round portion of the cottage. The home also has comfortable seating near a wood stove, a dining table, and small kitchen, as well as it’s signature feature: a library bath — literally a bathtub in a bookcase.

You are welcome to watch the farm owners going about their daily tasks, buy fresh meat and produce at the onsite shop, or for an additional fee, even participate in a woodworking workshop. Alternatively, you can sit on the patio and take in the astonishing views of the valley below. Book your stay here.

This is the story of how a woman is building tiny hobbit-style homes in Chelan, Washington.

Her name is Kristie Wolfe, and if the name rings a bell, it’s because she also built a DIY tiny home in Hawaii with her mom that you can vacation in if you want to.

Her next project is a set of hobbit-style tiny homes in the Washington mountains. This one is designed as if a carpenter was living in it so it features a lot of those elements. It’s a 288 sq. ft. buried and stick-framed cabin on 5.5 acres. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
