Inspiring hobbit house in Trout Creek, Mont

Here’s a more unusual place to spend the holidays at, in case you wanted to experience something different and unique. Located in northwest Montana, the hobbit house is owned by a very friendly 63 years old man called Steve Michaels. He makes his living as a broker of telephone answering businesses, running a company called TAS Marketing with his 59-year-old wife and he owns the house across the road.

The Hobbit House is definitely a big attraction. However, it’s not easy to get to. No matter where you live, this place is not close. But when you get there, a big hairy pair of slippers and a wizard’s hat belonging to someone named Gandalf await you. There you find out that the Hobbit House is a 1.000 square-foot structure built into a hill, on a 22 acre site filled with structures with dimensions varying from small to small enough to squash with your feet. Because the house is built into the hill, you can actually drive over it.

Karen’s Beautiful DIY Planter Box

These days I helped my grandmother to clean one of her rooms and throw away some old and out of fashion stuff. Among the old teapots, out of fashioned clothes or other old stuff I found some old pieces of mirror. They were in good shape and I thought what I could do with them instead of throwing them away. Sometimes old stuff can become incredible new things which might be useful to you.

Then I reminded of Karen’s Beautiful DIY Mirrored Planter Box. All you need is some beveled mirrors and a hot glue gun.Scrape the stickers off with a razor squeegee. Trying to peel them off will only end in tears and pill popping. Lay your base, mirror side down and hold one of the mirrored pieces up to the edge of the base.

20th Street Offices – A Green Building Initiative

What can be more comforting than to see the people around you as preoccupied as possible to respect and protect the environment, no matter what they do? It happens with the 20th Street Offices located in California, U.S.A. The building includes working studios for three design firms in Santa Monica, in one of the top “green” cities. It proves to be an efficient result of the natural system and the idea of being conscious in every aspect regarding the environment is laudable.

One example would be the plan to control the quality of the indoor air, beneficial for both the employees and for the environment at the same time. The intention was to  create a healthy working environment and to educate people to do the same, through the power of their own example. Minimizing the building’ s impact on the environment was a success. With its green roof, but also plants chosen for the beauty of the landscape, the construction is an example of modernity, with all sorts of recycled materials that contribute to the general effect.
