A hobbit-hole in my backyard? It may sound crazy, but I can tell you that my kids love it. It is the coolest playhouse ever. Plus, they can enjoy the grassy hill for sledding in winter and water sliding in summer. This was all my wife's idea. She dreamt it, and I got to be the one to bring it to reality. I'm not a construction expert; this was a total do-it-yourself job by a complete amateur. It has turned out rather nicely, I think. Here is the story of how it came to be.

Where is Sam Gamgee when I need him?

I need a gardener.  Spring has finally come, and so have the weeds.  At least it has stopped raining on my Saturdays!  I actually was able to work on it today, and made some really good progress on shoring up the northeast corner.  I'll get the leak fixed, then I can worry about trimming the verge.

The angle of that shot is great it makes it look like it is really in the shire with the rolling hill /mountain thing

Keep at it! It's looking good! I'll send Sam right over after he finishes with my backyard! :-)
