Forget tree houses and mini kitchens, I'm building my kids a hobbit hole. You need to remember this.
by Eli Laurens
A "Hobbit hole house" is an organic, half-buried hillside home with simple fixtures and a round entryway that was created by J.R.R. Tolkien for his novels about Hobbits. Creating one of these houses is possible by preparing and building most of a small hill with heavy equipment, like a backhoe.
