Fan Builds Hobbit House In His Backyard


In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit’ are the words with which The Hobbit famously opens, but one lifelong JRR Tolkien fan has gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure he experiences the same level of comfort enjoyed by Bilbo Baggins. The stone cottage, a veritable Hobbit house, is tucked away in the Pennsylvania countryside in the US, where the owner hopes to store his extensive collection of Tolkien books and memorabilia collected over the last three decades, as well as bring a corner of Middle Earth closer to home. The 600-square foot (55-square metre) building, a short walk from the main house, was built by architect Peter Archer and a team of craftsmen.” w/ photos
