    The Low Impact Woodland Home and it's accompanying village project has got to be one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Ecologically friendly and built into the side of a hill, it's... well, it's hobbit hole.

    Built in 4 months and for around £3000, the designer claims that the skills required to build one of these homes are within the reach of anyone. And they're planning on building a village next year to prove it.

    Sort of reminds me of William McDonough 's city proposal for China. (click through to the last chapter of the video)
