Hobbit Hole wins Garden Shed of the Year

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"The results of the 13th annual Shed of the Year competition have been announced and no, the winner is not David Cameron's garden hut.

"Move over, David Cameron. Britain’s best shed belongs not to the former Prime Minister, but to a man from Buxton, Chris Hield, whose eco-friendly hobbit hole, called Bux End, has just won the title of Shed of the Year 2019.

"Mr Hield, who beat 3,000 competitors to gain the top accolade, may not have written his memoirs at his shed (a fact that some could view as a distinct plus) but he worked hard to create a living roof on his Tolkien-inspired refuge, which he built himself using reclaimed bricks and timber."

and then

My father built an eco-friendly (less expensive to heat and cool) house in the 70's in rural Alabama.  It was a simple, 3 bedroom with about 1000 sq/ft but he poured concrete walls atop a well-drained concrete foundation built into the side of a hill, then overopped it all with another few feet of earth covered in grass.  His neighbors thought he was odd - and they were right :w00t:  and he didn't care a whit ;)
