Not all of the houses in the video are sustainably built with natural materials, however sometimes it’s fun to look at something different and unusual to stir the imagination. My personal favorites are Simon Dale’s 3,000 Euro Hobbit House in Wales (perhaps the most popular natural home in the modern era) and the Flintstones House. Simon Dale’s house epitomizes why Kelly and I do what we do. This house demonstrates how people of average skill can build their own affordable, even dirt cheap, natural house in a reasonable amount of time so they can break free of the rat race and do what they really want to do in life. Which ones are your favorites?
“Flintstones House – Well, this house may look familiar. TV personality Dick Clark had actually been the one to fight to have this home built. Located in Malibu California, the house is situated on 23 acres and needed to look like a rock formation to blend into the surroundings in order for Dick Clark to get permission to build on the wild site. The home is a one bedroom, two bath, with an interior covered in steel and wood. The huge glass windows offer 360 degree views of the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains. The house was recently sold by Clark’s widow for $1.78 million.”
