Anyways, the search for a place of our own was an arduous task, full of lots of page refreshing and sending out mass emails to people... and many times I found myself dreaming of just buying some land somewhere and building a yurt.
I know what you're thinking. I mean less of a Mongolian style yurt...
...even though this is pretty, I want something a little more habitable - like this:

But as of this moment I am still loving the idea of buying a piece of land, but building something that is unique to me. I love the way houses look. Architecture makes a lot of sense most of the time. I however, relish the thought of living somewhere that is absolutely one of a kind, and you can't get that in a modern home.
No, these days my dream lies in creating a home like this.
My very own hobbit hole. Something about living in a low-impact home really appeals to me, as long as it is also beautiful and functional. To view more information about the homes above, and to see more photos, visit Simondale.
I won't lie - I think about these sorts of homes and wonder how I would be able to have the convenience of internet and indoor plumbing, not to mention wondering about how to use and clean an outhouse... *shudder*. Winter. Outhouse. No.
But I wouldn't mind a DutchTub to go with my cool hobbit-style house. If not for everyday bathing, but for a fun way to relax and take in the lovely surroundings...
