Video: Amazing Secret Lord Of The Rings House. Photo – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5F8AgnQUr4
This astonishing fantasy house was built over a period of 11 years by an English farmer with a real artistic passion! The structure is full of wonderful organic shapes and the short video tour shows the building in a lot of detail both inside and out – we can see that this really is a labour of love and simply looking at it inspires thoughts of another world!
It’s so refreshing to see some creativity in building work! Thankfully there seems to be a lot of interest in unusual buildings in recent times, the internet is bringing us images and videos of previously hidden gems like this one and it’s encouraging more builders to express their creativity and to move away from the idea that houses have to be built purely with function in mind.
The technical skills of dry stone walling (or “dry-stacking”) that are evident in this building are part of an ancient tradition that can be traced back for many thousands of years – there are dry stone walls still surviving from prehistoric times and some of these can be seen in old burial chambers throughout the UK.
Very tall dry walls are much less stable so there are limits to how they can be used. The featured house has been reinforced with concrete as a precaution without changing the outer appearance – a wall without any mortar would also let the wind through!
Dry stone walls are found in many parts of the world and are usually built on farms to keep the animals enclosed. A lot of farmland is cleared of stone before ploughing or to make better use of the land for pasture – the stone can be then used for walling and it is ideal for dry or mountainous areas where hedges don’t grow easily.
Dry walls are very long lasting when built well and can be maintained without the need to bring in new materials – this makes them very eco-friendly! Small gaps in the walls provide a habitat for wildlife as well.
The building technique relies on the stones being fitted together tightly so that no mortar is needed and only gravity holds them in place. An amazing example can be found in the Mourne mountains of Northern Ireland – a wall that is 22 miles long! It took 18 years to construct and goes over 15 mountains along the way!
If you love the artistic use of stone, it’s well worth a look at some other examples that show just how versatile it can be – the works of Dan Snow and Andy Goldsworthy will provide some further inspiration.

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:
According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.
It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.
Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!
As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?
But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!
The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.
This gives you real water security!

Most People Don't Have The Guts To Try This:
An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
What REALLY Happens When You Bury a Shipping Container? (Hint: It's A Bit Crazy...)
Shipping containers are all the rage - but if you are thinking about buying one, you MUST watch this video first:
Do not, I repeat do NOT do what these lunatics did! Can you spot the "fatal mistake" they made?
There's a general belief that if you bury a shipping container you can create an awesome root cellar / storm shelter / survival bunker.
But is a shipping container strong enough to handle the pressure?

I Can't Help Showing This Off:
If you haven't heard of Claude Davis yet do yourself a huge favor and watch this video.
One of the smartest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting, Claude set-up a unique prepping system that changed his life forever.
I already tried it myself and let me tell... you I was completely blown away... His surprising tactics could make your life easier and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
Don't just take my word for it... watch his short video and decide for yourself.
