Every venture I embark on is driven by my desire to bring joy and security to
my friends and clients. As I envision Tibbleburrow, I constantly ask myself,
"What can it truly become?" "How can we improve and sustain it? How can we minimize the costs of construction and operation? Can we handle everything independently?"
The answer always lies with YOU. To create a superior experience for you and offer affordable prices, I rely on YOUR support! I have witnessed the incredible creativity of people in my own life who selflessly create things for others. They are moved by someone's life and want to use their talents to give back and show support.
The essence of Tibbleburrow resonates with generations of individuals who have grown up with a place very much like this in their hearts and minds. We have the opportunity to bring it to life, to make it a tangible reality that you can sit in and fully embrace.
I hope this ignites something within you! Keep scrolling to explore our visions for eco-living, supporting the arts, and nurturing our community at Tibbleburrow.
A Business Built
with YOU in Mind!
Merely building a tourist attraction is not enough. I would never have taken on this endeavor if that was the sole purpose.
We are dedicated to fostering a sustainable lifestyle that nurtures and protects the land we inhabit. Our vision combines the principles of ecology and technology, creating a harmonious fusion known as "Ecosynergi." Our society has become accustomed to a culture of convenience, which has resulted in detrimental consequences for the environment and our future. However, we believe that it is not too late to reimagine our way of living.
We begin by starting small, focusing on grassroots initiatives that evaluate our needs and explore how earth sciences can guide us in utilizing the natural world to fulfill some of the needs that technology has forced upon us. At Tibbleburrow, we are taking a step back from the conventional approach and designing an alternative way of existence. And why not make the journey enjoyable and fun?
As we have advanced technologically, we have also become disconnected from nature and ourselves. But it doesn't have to be that way! Increasingly, people are rediscovering the power of choice in shaping a lifestyle that brings them joy, improves their mindset, and expresses their unique passions. Just because we have grown accustomed to numerous responsibilities doesn't mean we have to be what was expected of our more stoic predecessors. Instead, we encourage individuals to find what brings them happiness, embrace their true selves, and take bold steps towards personal growth. Life is meant to be enjoyed in all its silly and delightful moments.
Bioharmoney, Green Habitats, Biophilic living,
No matter how you say it, it all means the same thing.
Tolkien was on to something all those years ago when he had the halflings live underground. It's a very efficient way to live in harmony with nature, especially with wide swings in seasonal weather. The geothermal insulation of the Earth evens out the temperature, making it easier to maintain a constant comfort zone.
Incorporating the best energy-efficient technology of today brings us closer to a sustainable, neutral footprint. The best techniques of the self-sufficient living of the past can also show us that sometimes we don't need to re-invent the wheel.
We plan to use wind and solar energy sources, constantly re-evaluating new ways to use the world we have to build the comfort we desire. The gardens and flower beds stay healthy without anything harmful by using grey-water recycling. Our site is where you can see and feel how sustainable living can work.
Other possibilities include smart home technology, in-floor heating, and natural pool filtration.
These track the Sun and put themselves to bed at night or in inclement weather.
In-Ground Produce Cooler
Uses the ground's natural insulating features to keep food cool and dry without electricity.
Smart Home Tracking
In wiring the hobbit homes with new smart-home technology, we will manage our facility and utilities better by tracking occupancy, safety, air quality, temperature, fireplace usage, etc.
All-Natural Pool Filtration
This allows us to swim in harmony with the wildlife and keep the water crystal clear. An added bonus, in the winter it freezes more solidly than an unmaintained pond, so ice skating is possible as the ice is thicker.
Tibbleburrow will showcase
the thermal insulating properties of underground living.
We hope to partner with
to make this happen!
Working with students,
we may develop an entirely new way to build efficient and flexible underground homes.
We will help rebuild relationships and small businesses
that were broken by recent hardships.
~ The baker who brought freshly baked goods daily to supplement his income.
~ The farmer able to bring in handcrafted cheeses.
~ The part-time gardeners, arborists, livestock caregivers, and hospitality staff.
All will find a friend and a living with Tibbleburrow!
Creating a family of services to bring you a more authentic experience.
We want to create a place for local artisans to do what they love and bring their visions to life by providing a forum for their work to be seen and used in an everyday setting.
Guests can use and enjoy furniture, decor, and art designed by local creators, and even purchase the pieces at the end of their stay. The artists will then be paid for their work and have the opportunity to resubmit the same work or something completely new.
We are giving back to the community by creating a cycle of prosperity and enrichment.
Supporting the Arts
Tibbleburrow will have many themes and styles, which means no two places will be the same. The homes will be filled with a menagerie of items: everyday things like blankets and rugs, pottery and silverware, coat hangers and side tables, as well as artwork for the walls and shelves, flower arrangements, sculptures, jewelry, vases, tools, fake food, hanging crops, and herbs.
We will have an Art Shop where artisans can submit their creations to help the town come to life.
Adding the Themes
Craft is not solely the providence of the arts; many use the outside world as their playground through gardening or landscaping.
We will be looking for these crafters as well when the time comes to keep the property in a magical splendor.
When construction is under way and after its completion, we will host workshops by artists and craftsmen to encourage the building of both new skills and of things needed for the site.
These workshops will let you contribute to the build, get to know our friends, and give you a sneak peek before we open.
After Tibbleburrow is up and running, workshops will shift to crafts like landscape painting and pottery and will be open to guests and locals alike.
The arts are essential to our lives and to this place. That is why we're making every effort to support the creative parts of each of us and inspire others to pick up the skills.
