For Sale: Adorable Hobbit Hole Playhouses
But will they fit Sir Ian McKellen?
Is your backyard not enough like The Shire for your taste? Might we suggest throwing a pretty sweet Hobbit Hole in there to liven things up? A company in Maine has started producing and delivering wooden Hobbit Holes, and don’t worry — you can get them in adult sizes as well.
Wooden Wonders in Unity, Maine might be better known for their chicken coops, but they’d like to make a name for themselves in the Hobbit Hole industry. Mission accomplished, Wooden Wonders! You’re already the first and only name we think of when we think about where to order a real world Hobbit Hole.
The company has two prefab Hobbit Hole kits. There’s the 32 square foot “Little Merry” for $1,495, and the 60 square foot “Big Merry” for $1,995. There’s also the “Woodshire” which can feature a sod roof and be built into the ground with the help of some landscaping, and it sounds like a much more involved Hobbit Hole. The “Woodshire” comes in 4′ x 8′ and 6’8″ x 8′ sizes that start at $3,995 and $4,995 respectively.
That may sound expensive, but we’re willing to bet anyone who wants to put a real Hobbit Hole in their yard is willing to spend the money for it.
If you want a larger or custom Hobbit Hole, they’re open to that as well. It really seems like the ideal place to sit and read some Tolkien.
