A Hole in the Ground
Built into the hillside of the Waikato farm, New Zealand, this hobbit-home is cleverly constructed to resemble a cave. Truly a place of escape, it was built to run without electricity, accentuating living off the grid. Everything inside this tiny cave house has been expertly crafted out of high quality materials. With its round table in the center, its country-style kitchen and custom made cypress wood cupboards and iron work fills the house with its rustic charm. On cold nights the antique coal range becomes the focus of the home. The range is responsible not only for space heating, but is also acts as a stove oven, and heats water for the house. The bathroom is in a separate cave where water is heated by a gas water heater and sourced from a local spring. Outside the bathroom cave sits a beautiful cast iron outdoor tub. It is currently a boutique bed and breakfast that costs $325 per night. Take a look at these photos and be sure to check out the video on page 4. Then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!
