Eco-couple told to pull down their 'hobbit home' made entirely out of natural mat

Every now and then a story comes along, that every fiber of your being knows is wrong. In the following case a young couple actually went and did something constructive. They built their own home using the environment around them and with hard work and perseverance, which should be reward accomplished something few of us ever do. They have the home of their dreams without a mortgage.

What the hell happened to if you have the knowledge, the skill, and the drive to succeed, you can make it on your own. Is their home such a threat to the establishment that others would follow in their footsteps that the dream has to be destroyed? For well over 5,000 years humans have built their own homes, without having to seek permission, or needing some loan from some bank. I might understand if this was some shanty shack made of corrugated tin, cardboard, tarps, and duct tape, but that is not what we have here.

This in my heart is an assault on the creativity and spirit of people who want to be free. You do not do this to people, when looking back and we can still see just a little over a century ago their great grandparents most likely built a family home with their own two hands.

Whoever is in charge of that district/county should be told by the community if anything happens to that home their political party will never be elected into office again to serve the people. And they would explain it to surrounding communities to ensure their political party was seen as a blight to be eradicated from any public office. I guarantee you someone would get fired for even contemplating having this house torn down.

Eco-couple told to pull down their 'hobbit home' made entirely out of natural materials . . . but without planning permission

A young couple have been left heartbroken after planners ordered their unique 'hobbit home' to be bulldozed, effectively leaving them homeless.

Charlie Hague and Megan Williams, both 25, built the roundhouse from scratch with their own hands, using only natural materials.

But the couple lost their appeal today against a planning enforcement notice telling them to tear their pride and joy home down.

Charlie and Megan, who have a one-year-old son Eli, built the house on private land in Glandwr, North Pembrokeshire, last summer.

Locals nicknamed it the hobbit home, although most people did not even know it was there because it is so secluded.

But Pembrokeshire County Council ordered the couple to demolish their home because it was built without planning permission.

Charlie and Megan, who live a self-sufficient lifestyle, fought the decision claiming it had a low impact on the environment because of its unique construction.

Charlie, a sculptor and woodworker, said: 'We built this house to provide our son with a healthy environment to grow up in.

No way they should give up! What a beautiful house they built!

Once again, this is why government is ALWAYS the enemy of the people. People who work in government are nothing but control freaks sucking a living off taxpayers. Now these control freaks are trying to ruin this young couples' lives.

It was not that long ago when millions of Americans lost their homes to banks and ended up in a situation like the one below.

This is Ontario California 2008

Tent City-Ontario, Ca.





What any single one of these persons would have given for a 1/4 acre and to be left alone to build their own Adobe house, or Cob House.

If someone came along to teach them how to build their own home from the ground up. How many would have refused?

Every situation is different, but the resources that are denied are land and water. With these two regulated our freedom is controlled. If you have land you can build a home even if it is made out of sandbags, or mud. It would be yours and the cost would be the time and effort you were willing to put into it. With water you can grow your own food, regardless of soil conditions this can be fixed with time and effort, but you need water.


CalEarth is organization I looked at a few years back because they are teaching people how to build using dirt. The same material that has been used for 1000's of years to build homes. The only limits are your own creativity and how much effort you are willing to put into your dream home. --- Then again we see a story like the one above and have to ask WTF.

Is there really a preference of people being homeless and living in tents in a public park? It is not like we ran out of land all of sudden, nor have we run out of water or rivers, lakes, and streams. Most would be off grid in a year with an acre and running water. A water wheel, and a few solar panels, and a solar water heater. They would not be living a rich lifestyle but freedom for hard work put in should be granted.

and that is what is being taken away here.

If it is on private land they should tell the council to F off.

What has that to do with anything? The building has appealing form and succeeds in fulfilling function. If the land belongs to them and it's not an eyesore, it's no business or the council.

God help folks like you, who apparently seek approval from the establishment - you're already lost if you need to follow.

Yes it's beautiful. Lovely house & well done to them..

..but to build it with no planning permission? They must be mad - absolutely bonkers to think they'd get away with it.

We live in a tiny country, full of history & packed with archaeology - even our scenery has 'value'. You just can't let people build what they want, where they want.

Planning permission here is all about precedent. What about the next Tom, Dick or Harriet wanting to build another further down the valley? ..and the next..and the next?

Admitted, current Planning Law is a mess & it does need updating, but it's there for a reason - as it stands, the house is illegal.

It's a real shame, but I can't see how they could let it stand.

I'll say it again and get called crazy again, we a a captive animal in a captive society run by the government which are glorified zoo keepers. If you think your not a captive or slave then you don't use your grey matter much. And for the people who blame their wows on the dole bludgers, well you have to feed and house your captives don't you, or set them free to habitat and feed themselves, otherwise you've turned from having captives to having working slaves....

Actually that post wasn't meant for you. But if the shoe fits, lace it up and wear it. We all shine from the same light, regardless of how far from the source.
They are all totally and utterly crazy, every last one of them and they are trying to convince you you are. It's easier to deny and fight the truth than face the mirror and admit you've blindly been part of it.

The couple’s appeal was dismissed by planning inspector Iwan Lloyd, who ruled the development harmed the character and appearance of the countryside.

Mr Lloyd’s report stated: 'The character and appearance of the countryside should be protected for its intrinsic sake.

'The benefits of a low-impact development do not outweigh the harm to the character and appearance of the countryside.'

Own the land, hahaha yeah they say you own it if you work for them and pay them for the rest of your life and you believe it. Animals don't own land they use it communally and your an animal like it or not albeit an intelligent one. You all fallen for the clever dictators who claim everything is theirs unless you do as they wish, sad sad people.....
