Hobbity House


Here are some pics I took of the eco-friendly house my friends Marcus and Kate live in with their kids Tíroin, Roisín, and Caspar. I love going to visit them. If I go in the right season, I get to pick berries in the wild berry garden and eat Kate's famous seasonal fruits bread pudding (which I can make, too).

It's called a straw bale house. When you think about it, it's a modern version of the clay-and-wattle buildings of our Celtic ancestors. Google "The Ark, Clones, Co. Monaghan" and you'll get more info on it.
