My husband and I (in our late 50’s and 60’s)  are building a Hobbit House in the Hill Country of Texas.

You can follow our progress at:   www.texashobbithouse.com     We also have a FB group with the same name.

While this almost-600sf HH may not qualify for a “tiny house”, it will still require careful consideration in terms of space-saving techniques!  The unique construction may prove challenging when it comes to working with curved spaces where square things generally go:  cabinetry, shelving, etc.

We look forward to suggestions, questions, and even constructive criticism, if absolutely necessary and given in a helpful spirit!
