Building to live like a Hobbit. Can't Post

Thanks to Eruonen for the idea from another thread. http://newboards.theonering.net/...i?post=929946#929946
Some folks have been inspired to build their own Hobbit holes. These are ones I've bookmarked previously. There must be others out there. Let's see how many we can come up with.

Scotland
This may be the ultimate Hobbit hole house.

Super mysigt. (Super cozy, snug.) The video is in Swedish but most of the dialog is written up in English.

Fantastic! [In reply to] Can't Post

Did Grant Stewart even intend on mimicking ME or was it just happenstance? Either way, it is certainly Hobbity.

Stewart (first link) didn't explain what inspired him, except this perhaps: [In reply to] Can't Post

"If you're working as a joiner for somebody else, you've got to do what they want, and all these ideas come into your head, and I just, all these dreams, I put them all into it."

He is a Hobbit and he does not know it. [In reply to] Can't Post

Kind of reminds me of Alex Jordan who build "House on the Rock"
in Wisconsin. A man filled with ideas.

I just love the woodwork [In reply to] Can't Post

in the Scottish one, the beautiful quirkiness of it and the way all the modern gadgetry is hidden away. So clever!

Agreed! [In reply to] Can't Post

The fridge and microwave, the toaster, and the tiny drawer for the matches with a strike strip on the side. He obviously delighted in figuring them all out.
