The Magical Hobbit-Like Eco Cave House

Published

on

While the tiny house movement has been gaining more and more traction, one man has already planned and developed his own, designed to send you back in time. “Underhill” is an incredible, hobbit-like eco-cave house built into the hillside of a Waikato (New Zealand) farm. The house is cleverly constructed to resemble a cave and looks like something Bilbo Baggins would be proud to call home. This earth-built house has no electricity, uses local stone and wood, and features rustic materials which make it look like it is straight from The Lord of the Rings movies. Bryce and his team at Living Big in a Tiny House have done a wonderful job of capturing the essence of this unique and rustic tiny home. Below are some pictures of this amazing house. You can also watch the full video and interview with the man who designed and built this inspiring, magical, and eco friendly home below.

A sturdy country-style kitchen adds even more character to the home, while also being fully functional. The cupboards are all made out of heavy duty macrocarpa and the iron-work is all custom made.

Everything inside this tiny cave house has been expertly crafted out of high quality materials. The end result is a beautiful, cosy home filled with rustic charm. The round table in the centre of the house creates a fantastic area for entertaining and socialising.

The sleeping area is just beautiful. The custom made bed is an unusual shape but wonderfully comfortable. A skylight above the bed has been cleverly fashioned out of an old car windshield, allowing you to watch the stars above from the comfort of your own bed.

There is no electricity at Underhill, so night time is filled with the beauty of candlelight. The decision not to run power to the cave house was made to help fortify its role as a true place of escape. Having no power encourages people to leave their phones and computers behind and enjoy relaxing in the wonderful natural environment.

Outside the bathroom cave sits a beautiful cast iron outdoor tub. In the daytime, this tub enjoys spectacular views of the valley and pond feature, and at night, unrivalled views of the night sky above.

Climate Change: Moving Beyond The CO2 Narrative & Seeing Planet Earth For What It Really Is

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    New documentary called Regenerate: Beyond The C02 Narrative explores how we can truly regenerate our environment. The current mainstream focus on C02 is not the answer.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we viewing the earth as a mechanical machine? Are we living in a society built on disconnection? Do we value maintaining the status quo more than creating a thriving life for all?

I have a new film I want to share with you, one that I was very passionate about creating because I believe it has the power to truly change the way we think about our environment.

I’ve been researching the topic of climate change for over 10 years, and the one thing I can honestly tell you, no matter what political side you are on or what you think the science says: the topic is very dizzying. No, it’s not as simple as the oil companies are faking science to show dangers to our climate are not as bad. No, it’s not as simple as lowering CO2 emissions, in fact, that is an incredibly misleading narrative. What we have to do is much different than that.

One thing I will say is this, many of the current propositions we see from governments, companies and mainstream media are designed to work within our economy. Economy first, environment second. They are also designed not to have humanity question their relationship with things like nature, money, life, who we are and why we are even here. They are designed to maintain the status quo. For that reason, they are often linear, mechanical ideas that disregard the true nature of the earth and the environment.

Those who have really gone deeply into the subject of climate change see this very quickly: you cannot simply solve our climate woes by planting more trees or lowering CO2 emissions, as you are just looking at one TINY aspect to the puzzle, and this direction won’t actually help the planet, it will only make us think we are helping.

Coming to these realizations over the last 10 years is what inspired me to create a film that would unite people. It’s a film that doesn’t argue about who’s to blame, what the causes of climate change are and so forth, it’s instead a film that looks at the core of the issue, and how we can actually create the changes that are needed at this time.

In short, the biggest challenge we face right now is that we live in a mindset and paradigm of disconnection and linear, mechanical thinking. This has led to the creation of a world that takes only individual parts into consideration, and not the whole. This thinking provides the experience of what it looks like to create from disconnected and destructive points of view. Sifting out of this thinking and state of being, into one of connection, is the challenge before us. When we do this, it will begin to reshape policy, choices, actions and creations that influence our world, way of living and how we relate to the earth.

Due to the Coronavirus lockdown everyone is experiencing right now at home, I’ve decided to make the film Regenerate: Beyond The CO2 Narrative, free for everyone to watch.

Below is a trailer to check out the film. If you wish to watch this film entirely, click here.

It’s Earth Day, a time where we reflect on and consider what our relationship with the Earth is like. Are we in harmony with it? How do our daily actions affect it? What can we do to truly be in better relations with our earth, not so we can just sustain, but so we can truly thrive?

Food Is The Problem & Solution: This Video May Knock Your Socks Off

Published

on

South Central Los Angeles is notorious for its drive-by shootings, where shooters kill their victims without ever leaving their cars. And it’s also the home of drive-through restaurants where people eat fast food without ever leaving their cars.

–> It’s time for a food revolution. Get the latest cutting-edge insights from 25 of the world’s most trusted food and nutrition experts during this free event.

Why does Ron Finley, the “gangsta’ gardener,” say that the drive-throughs are killing more people than the drive-byes?

Inner city communities often have little or no access to healthy food. As a result, people who live in these “food desserts” have extremely high rates of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and many other diet-fueled chronic ailments.

But now, here is a bright beacon of hope. Ron Finley feeds the hungry, and brings real food to the people that need it most. He grows not just vegetables, but also the very fabric of community itself.

When you watch this powerful video, you will, I am certain, be deeply inspired.

Prepare, frankly, to get your socks knocked off.
