You can now live in an eco-friendly hobbit hole right here in the United States thanks to Green Magic Homes!
The company operates worldwide and is bringing Tolkien’s hobbit houses to life with the greenest perks you can ever imagine. Apart being just about anything between durable, flexible and waterproof, they are obviously green-roofed, non-corrosive, 100 percent non-toxic, and best of all, emission-free.
Company designers are currently working on making the unbelievably green structures even greener with off-the-grid ambitions of solar and wind technology, not forgetting rain-harvesting possibilities.
The homes cost roughly $42 per square foot but the smallest home shell costs around $15,000 without customization. Ducts, plumbing, ventilation, wiring and any other conventional home extras are not included in the purchase price.
The main green perks of these homes include a plastic structure that’s eighty percent recycled content but still long-lasting, a green roof (basically, covering the home with soil) that can become a native plant garden for pollinators or grow food crops for inhabitants, a very small footprint in terms of size, and avoidance of conventionally damaging home components like an asphalt shingle roof or extremely high energy bills. Soil on the roof is stabilized by root systems, with an underlying fabric layer covering the building.
Green Magic Homes work in almost any climate, including cold or desert environments. The temperature in the home is partly regulated by earth berms around the edges, giving them the appearance of a hill with doors and windows popping out. They’re fast and easy to assemble because it’s like a puzzle joining together with sealed parts.
Perhaps the single most practical thing about Green Magic Homes is that you can put it together yourself if you decide not to hire a crew. Either way, the house can be up and running within a week!
So, I bet you are green with envy huh?
No emissions, affordable, quick and off-the-grid!
How much better can a home get?
