    Man Builds Fairy Tale Home

    I like unconventional homes and was really delighted to see this 'Hobbit' dwelling that cost only 3,000 pounds to build. Hope you enjoy.

    That was interesting. Good for him for doing what he wants in a eco-friendly way. Looks like a fun place to live.

    My questions: Did he need to get a Building Permit to build this house? I wonder what City Department
    would approve it? More people could afford houses IF they could build it where they wanted to build it...
    but most cities, townships and county departments have Rules out the Wazoo...and would not allow anyone to build this. As the saying goes "Not in our jurisdiction!"

    In the country there are no regulations like you are talking about.
