Energy-saving hobbit house in WA's South West

Nigel Kirkwood, who fondly calls himself a modern-day hobbit, is living in his dream home in WA's South West.

Nigel Kirkwood stands on top of his home.
This earth-sheltered house in Quindalup, around 20 kilometres from Busselton, is far from a typical home.

There is almost 1,000 tonnes of dirt on top of the house, which helps it maintain a consistent temperature all year around.

Mr Kirkwood said he saved up to $100 a cycle by not having heating and cooling.
