Wintergreen Studios built this eclectic tiny hobbit house / cordwood cabin with a green roof using mostly reclaimed, recycled and local materials, including old cedar fence rails found on the land, ceiling rafters from a local woodlot, recycled glass and mirrors in the walls, and the windows, door and wood stove are reclaimed as well. The slate floor is from an architectural salvage depot in Vermont. Mat visited this hobbit house with friends last summer and couldn’t resist taking a peek inside to check it out. We love the folding plywood bed (maybe we’ll do something like that in our next camper van!), the recycled bottles in the walls, and the charming simplicity of the tiny space. And we can never get enough of green roofs! The hobbit house cabin and studio is available for rent on the Wintergreen Studios website here: Facilities Thanks for watching!

    I think you will have a perfect time if you stay here for a short time. The glass inside the walls makes it so warm and playfull.

    Sorry if I offend, but this is just trashy aesthetics. Even when I see Earthships doing this crap with old bottles and cans, it always looks like trash stuck into a cement wall. Very rarely done artistically pleasing.

    Wow this cabin is great. I would totally visit there. I wouldn't necessarily live there, as I would need a slightly larger bed for two.

    He did mention in the video that there was no shower, but there was an outhouse. This is a rental unit. There are so many people asking where the bathroom was. That's where – outside!

    Superbe mais c'est où? Toilette ? j'adore l'idée de cette construction à partir d'éléments recyclé. Beau commentateur, filmographie intéressante.

    Could you please use metric, at least as a subtitle? Noone uses imperial apart from the US and other ex British colonies.

    Super Cool space. Just needs a WC and a shower to be complete.
    I really admire all the tiny design and architectural details.
    Thanks for sharing this.
