While we’ve seen many Hobbiton-inspired tiny houses before, this is a “real” one, recently entirely on the same farm as the Hobbiton movie set for the “The Lord of the Rings” and “Hobbit” trilogies. The original set designers helped create the home to ensure it was as true to Peter Jackson’s interpretation of the books as possible.

And wow! The home feels genuine, cozy, and almost like coming “home.” Designed to be the abode of the Proudfoot family, which has three small children, there’s a child’s room with bunk beds and toys and even a fort built in the corner of the living room. And the kitchen! It looks ready to make the first and second breakfast and then hop onto elevenses. Enjoy the tour!

Purposely Lost is a fantastic woodland retreat space in Sandford, Maine, where you can stay in one of three treehouses or two “Hobbit” houses. This underground home, pictured below, is a stunning blend of cozy and luxurious, with warm wood tones, leather accents, and stonework.

The home looks like a hill, with moss and mud surrounding the doors and windows. But when you enter, it’s anything but dingy and dirty! Instead, the comfortable space has a full kitchen, a bathroom (with a tiled shower stall!), and a gorgeous stone (electric) fireplace. Could you live in this space?

This is the story of a man who is living in an underground home on only $5,000 a year. The roof is covered in moss and pine needles while the outside wall of the home is built using large stones. A tiny wooden door leads you inside.

Once inside, you’ll find the walls and low ceilings are covered in wood paneling and the floor is covered with carpeting. The bedroom is on the other side of the home which you can access by crawling through a circular hole. Using a separate entrance, you can access the bathroom which has a composting toilet, a shower, and there’s even a pine wood sauna.
