Take a walk on the woodsy side with this enchanting tiny house from Whales — built by hand with straw bales, imagination and little else. Simply amazing low-impact housing with a sense of magic and wonder — and all built for 3000 British pounds.
The website includes details and plans and great links to other low-impact housing sites. Enjoy! BeingSomewhere.net

Kudos to my son, for locating this one for me!
