In the countryside, in the middle of green hills in Slovenia, there is a tiny house. It is almost completely hidden from the prying eyes of passers-by. The dwelling itself resembles a house from a fairy tale and fits perfectly into the surrounding garden.
Married couple Danica and Jože Kolarič built for themselves a small house called Teahouse … It is designed for relaxation and tea drinking.
To realize the construction of this dwelling, it was necessary to partially excavate the hill. The walls and ceiling are made of concrete and serve as an additional support for the entire structure. After the concrete base was installed, an embankment was made on top. Thus, the house looks like it is completely hidden in the ground. The roof is covered with turf.
Inside, the interior is in a typical rustic style. Recycled materials were used to decorate the walls. The dilapidated houses nearby are the source of the timber used for the walls and floors. A stone and brick fireplace adds extra charm to the interior.
Danica and Jože Kolarič are not the only ones who have made a charming dugout for themselves. Young designer Ashley Yates posted pictures on the network, which captured the process of building a house in stages.
