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.

My daughter's joke re: The Key to the Universe:
When did Schrödinger's cat get out of the box? When Pavlov rang the bell.
One could say they sit on the edge of nothing to watch the unfolding of something in recognition of a force they do not control but merely communicate with.
