Look at this incredibly designed, low-impact house by Simon Dale for his family.

This home is nestled in nature and is incredibly environmentally sound, making it the perfect cozy little nest.

All self-designed and built by hand by Simon, his father-in-law, and a few friends and neighbors. This just makes it even more impressive.

It looks like it is the set of an epic film about fairies and gnomes, but really it is just a home built by a man in Wales. A home would absolutely love to live in.

    how cool and gorgeous!, back in the early 70′s my parents had designed a home similar to this plan. They even had the property picked out… but we couldnt afford it at that time. I wonder what ever happened to those plans.
