Hobbit Houses For Swinging Singles

Let's say you're hell-bent on living in a Hobbit house but you'd prefer not to take part in that freaky gated community The Shire. You're looking for something a little more free. A place to truly let go and let be. Heck, maybe you just want a location that's, "a fitting repository for a ... valuable collection of J.R.R. Tolkien manuscripts and artifacts." That would mean taking a trip over to FineHomebuilding.com to view "a modern day cottage based on mythical literature."

I wonder what they'd consent to build for someone with a valuable collection of Rube Goldberg papers?

Thanks to Book Moot for the link.

All of this architecture based on the Shire! When will see some quality Mordor-inspired work? An enterprising realtor could stick Barad-Dûr on Avenue B and have the place rented in an afternoon.
