Real Life Hobbit Hole

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

Here’s what the builder has to say about this:

“You are looking at pictures of our family home in Wales. It was built by myself and my father in law with help from passers by and visiting friends. 4 months after starting we were moved in and cozy. I estimate 1000-1500 man hours and £3000 put in to this point. Not really so much in house buying terms.”

Who gets the credit for these photos? American tax dollars paid for them. They were taken by robots. Yes, but is it art?
These were collected by Boston.com.
