Dan Price’s Hobbit House was featured in our book Home Work in 2004.
“He’s got no wife, no money, but he’s happy in his ‘hobbit hole.’
Dan Price left behind a stressful life as a photo-journalist after his marriage fell apart, and he wound up in a meadow outside Joseph, Ore. He now lives in an underground hutch burrowed into the hillside. ‘I like being able to do what I want to do,’ Price told NBC. ‘I don’t believe in houses or mortgages. Who in their right mind would spend their lifetime paying for a building they never get to spend time in because they are always working?’”
