Watch – America’s homemade Hobbit Holes

In a hole, in the ground, there lived a human.

Rocy Pillsbury spent 17 years working as a carpenter in conventional construction until he started having children and wanted to work from home. Both he and his wife, Melissa, are fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, so he began designing a real-world version of the mini-abodes inhabited by Frodo, Bilbo Baggins and their Hobbit kin.

Today, the couple sell officially licensed Hobbit Holes with Middle-earth Enterprises. They build these wee shelters as small as chicken coops and as large as an 8-foot 2-inch-high cottage.
