Londoner quits city life to build £4,000 'hobbit house'

GOING off-grid is something many dream of, but one former Londoner has actually followed through on his dream of living in a self-built house in the woods. Kris Harbour, 31, gave up his job, house, a flat he owned, and a busy social life to move onto a plot of land in the welsh countryside, which he bought on Ebay.
