Video tour of an incredible hobbit house cabin that is completely off-grid. It is built with straw bale walls and limestone plaster, log roof rafters and support columns, and a stunning green roof with a glass dome in the centre to bring in a lot of natural light.

This hobbit house was built by Dior and Sylvain from Les Toits du Monde which in English means Roofs of the World.
It is a wooded eco-resort with trails running through the forest and all kinds of neat cabins and green buildings to stay in.
They also have a tree house, yurts, and a tipi in addition to the hobbit house, and they are located in Nominingue, Quebec — a small town that’s less than 3 hours from Montreal and Ottawa.
They’ve used natural, unfinished wood for countertops, benches, a table, and more. It all adds to the feeling that your house is a part of the woods. It’s minimalist living at it’s best.
The hobbit house has solar power for the lights, a single-burner propane cooktop in the kitchen, a portable solar shower and composting 5-gallon bucket toilet with sawdust in the bathroom.
