A hobbit-hole in my backyard? It may sound crazy, but I can tell you that my kids are ecstatic about it. When it is finished, it will be 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 now I get to be the one to bring it to reality. I'm not a construction expert; this is a total do-it-yourself job by a complete amateur. So far, though, it is turning out rather nicely, I think. Here is a step by step account of the building so far.

In a hole in the ground, there lived a hobbit...

Here are a few angles of the completed hobbit-hole in the springtime.  It looks like it has just always been there, as part of our backyard.

This may just be the start of a chapter filled with magical and unexpected adventures for the new hobbits will be living there: your kids! They will definitely have fun in this playhouse, and it would be the perfect venue for hanging out during those lazy summer days.

I would love to see the inside and what it turned out to look like. I've been keeping an eye on your page almost since you started the Hobbit Hole and I love the idea! Can't wait to see more pictures. Have a great one.
