This earth-sheltered Australian hobbit home stays cozy all year

Located in Quindalup, around 20 km from Busselton, this earth-sheltered house is loaded with nearly 1,000 tons of dirt.

Kirkwood has spent 25 years in the WA mining industry, which inspired him to create a hobbit home. He knows how huge tunnel structures are quite cool on the inside. Moreover, when you are protected underground you don’t have to face major moisture problems or seismic problems.
