Constructing and living together in an Earth House neighbourhood

2018-05-23T08:57:20+00:00

It's like...we're walking in a Hobbit landscape! This Dutch neighbourhood consists of 23 "Aardehuizen" (based on Michael Reynolds 'Earth ship' model).

Visit the website of Stichting Aardehuizen in Olst (Earth Houses, Olst) for more information: http://www.aardehuis.nl/en Or their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Aardehuis
