Surreal Estate – Habitable Hobbit Holes

in Outside the Magic, What If

Bag End

“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.” -J.R.R. Tolkien The Hobbit

Those familiar, famous words, written over 80 years ago, would bloom into a fantasy genre that spawned numerous novels (Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion are but two), three animated features and eight blockbuster movies.  It also inspired fantasy role playing (Dungeons and Dragons) and a dragon’s horde of merchandise, the world of elves, orcs, goblins, dwarves, hobbits and men weaves such an imaginative immersive realm that many would love to escape within.

So who wouldn’t love to live in a Hobbit hole of their very own?

A company called Green Magic Homes has the solution (magic rings not included).  Their prefabricated homes have been compared to Hobbit holes and come in a variety of styles for the discerning adventurer who doesn’t want to miss second breakfast.
