Eco-Friendly DIY Homes Fit for a Hobbit

In Pembrokeshire, Wales, the cutest, handmade houses have been popping up around the county. These wee homes, made of natural, locally sourced materials and scavenged bits from the surrounding countryside, embody low-impact living. What exactly does that mean? It means that the inhabitants who built these houses, like Simon and Jasmine Dale, grow and cultivate the vast majority of what they consume. The two have been living in their very own hobbit-sized house since 2003. And now, they’re helping others build similar homes in the Lamma community—the country’s first eco-village. Needless to say, the Bagginses would approve.

how does this work legally with tax because most chalets if they are of a certain size you are only allowed to live in them for 10months of the year, mostly due to tax but even in cased where people do pay, fines and prison sentences have still been issued as it is a reduced tax.
