Hobbit Hole Playhouse is Not Really a Hole, Barely a House
March 22nd, 2012
Fans of The Hobbit have probably dreamed about living in a Hobbit hole house and having large hairy feet. This will get you one of the two, if you like tiny dwellings. While these Hobbit houses are not underground, they are quaint little homes fit for small humans pretending to be Hobbits.
If you’re into Hobbits, the good news is that you can buy one of these Hobbit hole playhouses from Wooden Wonders for yourself. These playhouses range in size from 10 to 12 feet wide, and have a clearance of 5′-3″ to 6′-3″, so even your occasional human guest can stand up – depending on the model you buy – and the size of your humans.
If you like cramped quarters, a Hobbit hole playhouse will cost you from about $2,000 to $3,000(USD), and you’ll have to head to Maine to pick one up. Then you can sit inside and wait for Gandalf to come and fetch you and have a little adventure.
That said, it’s still basically a small shed done up to look like a Hobbit house. You could probably make one for less than the asking price. Of course, you’d still have to furnish it with tiny furniture, and explain to your neighbors that you’re building a Hobbit hole.
