I have to agree with you. Though if you look carefully at the two penultimate pictures (the three windows and the bookshelves) you can see that a significant portion of the house is under ground level, so at least they made an effort. And the comment under the circular door photo mentioned also needing a standard door to conform to code, so perhaps a fully underground house would have some code issues with roofing or walls or some-such.

There is a separate article focusing more on the owner than the house in the news section of TCG, here.

By the way, welcome to the site!

I got a chuckle out of this "Tollkien" signed book...

Send me bug reports (or feature requests!) if you find anything odd or just that you don't like about the site. I don't mind tweaking the website, but a lot of times I am not aware that there are problems! (For example, I hadn't tried to register a new account in ages, and something ended up being broken for a while there.)

I am getting email notifications when new posts are made to the boards - anyone else using this feature, and if so, does it work for you? Just curious.

I have in the past posted most of my updates to the discussion forums (in the TCG website forum). I did have the "latest Guide changes" on the home page for a while, but it is poorly written code, and caused the home page to take 1 minute or more to load a lot of the time. When I have that fixed, I may put it back up. I also like to tweak a page or set of pages for a while before I announce they are ready to be viewed, so a dynamic list of page changes often isn't very useful during construction times.

If I try the email newsletter (using the notification settings) I'll set it up with a select few of you that are willing to put up with bugs until it seems to work.

I put up my scans of the three volume sheets at

HoME Guide page

The guide pages are just placeholders right now, and the scans are rather large (about 300k each) so I need to do some work, but at least everyone can see what all the blurbs said.
