Meet Rocky and Melissa. They live in Maine and have been building what I like to call Hobbit Hole Tiny Homes.

Their micro structures can serve a variety of purposes. Originally they were intended to be for children so they were in the playhouse business.

Recently they’ve decided to broaden their market when they realized that adults love these little dwellings just as much as kids do and I think they made a great choice, don’t you think?

Their company is called Wooden Wonders and as most of you might already know a “hobbit” is a character from a book called The Hobbit which is now more widely known as Lord of the Rings.

Even in the original book, Hobbits were known to live very simple lives in rural areas. Much like many of us want to consider trying and some of you are already doing. Some of you are even completely off-grid in your own tiny cabin.

Rocky has designed and built his unique round dome shaped structures to be used as chicken coops, offices, sheds, and even a little cottage. You can see their biggest build that has a back porch and all in the photos above and you’ll get a video tour below. It’s about 200 square feet in size.

The most unique and interesting thing about them which you’ll notice right away is their shape. In a world where all homes look almost identical, this really stands out and makes you feel welcome.

In the video tour- thanks to Faircompanies.com- you’ll get to see more of their cottage version as well as a smaller 9 x 9 version with cedar shingles, pine siding, and a futon inside.

Right now Rocky and Melissa and their small company, Wooden Wonders, are the only ones who have a license through Middle Earth to build and sell Hobbit Holes to the masses.

Pricing for Wooden Wonder’s Hobbit Holes start at $999 for a coop and go all the way up to $14,999 for a cottage. For more information visit their website. Also be sure to check out Kirsten Dirksen’s original post and video tour/interview with Rocky and Melissa.

    I would like to see this design expanded for actual living with proper head room, partition walls and areas for cooking, sleeping, and bathroom.

    They look very nice and the design idea could be adapted for a unique cabin.

    The round door is cool but would be a problem for everyday use and people with disabilities and the elderly. Could be adapted to be both a traditional rectangular door with an optional round door.

      It has an option, for an added $250, to install a back door: “3 feet, meets ADA requirements” :)

    I LOVE these! How very cool!

    But I live with a LOTR purist, and am a borderline one myself. It’s only a hobbit-hole if it’s in the ground!

    I think we’d have to build a hill around this to really feel comfortable calling it a Hobbit Hole – but, hey, they’re so neat, it would totally be worth the trouble!

    :)

      That’s awesome, Jessica! I can totally agree with that. Thanks for checking it out and leaving your thoughts.

    Can these be shipped outside the United States? I NEED to live in one, but it needs to be larger, have electricity and water and a bathroom and kitchen area. Maybe up to 300 or 400 sq. ft. Is it possible to make one that large? That’s still small, but for a Hobbit Hole it’s pretty big. I’m serious, please let me know. Thank you so much.

      Lynda what is it specifically about the Hobbit Holes that fits your needs? Trust me, as you age, the knee knocker door sill will get Really Old(shipboard experience) I too love the round top door/window effect and maybe that is one of the attractions that can sooth your needs. I feel the footage you need is perfect, you might look at Tiny Texas Houses “Brownie” and feel what I think is the most of what you can live with. I would do a dome roof however like the Tetra on that site. Very Vardo or Caravan like.

    These are so darn adorable! Of course I am into one of my new projects of tiny house curtains, etc., so I am seeing my tiny curtains and other décor items I make, in all sorts of places, in all sorts of sizes and shapes! I can certainly see some in one of these!
    Thanks for sharing this!
