We are currently building a three bedroom house, with the same hobbitat style and with the same natural materials. It will however contain enough space for teenage children and be of sufficient quality to last a satisfied lifetime. In many ways it is an experiment to apply the ideas we have used for low-impact tiny homes, to the scale and performance standards of a contemporary high-tech house. In the process we wish to find out how this can be done, and is it worth it compared to going down a conventional green-building route or just living a more basic lifestyle in a simple little home.
