It's a while now since we left the hobbit house and we've finally found a piece of land which we can actually call our own. As part of the Lammas project we are now living on the site of Wales' first authorised 'low-impact' ecovillage.
After being granted Planning Permission at the end of August 2009, we moved immediately onto the land and have since been working on a first dwelling. Through this Autumn we have worked with a fantastic bunch of folk to put up a new home quite similar to the hobbit house featured on this website. Huge thanks and love to all who've worked with us.
The house is a little way from complete, though it has reached the stage that we've been able to evacuate our temporary tented shelter and move on in. So once again, we've been enjoying the satisfaction and delight of a home made home!
We will also be working outwards across our 7 acre plot. This will include tree planting,setting up forest garden areas, pond making, constructing a workshop and sheep barn and plenty more. Then at some stage, when we're feeling ready, we'll be starting work on a larger house to last us a lifetime.
