Company Builds Pre-Fab Hobbit Houses In 3 Days And You Can Actually Live There

Ever wanted to live in the Middle-earth? Embrace yourselves, your geekiest dream may be just one house away. A company called Green Magic Homes came up with an idea to build tiny prefabricated houses that look exactly like Hobbit holes and can be assembled by 3 people in a few days time!

Just like Hobbit holes, these houses are designed to exist under a layer of soil and turf and can even produce food if you decided to grow some veggies on the roof. Heck, if you are not a fan of greens, they can even be covered with sand or snow, depending on where you live.

If you have a vision of your own, this company can make it happen as their modular system offers endless possibilities of design. Cozy, eco-friendly houses that neatly blend in with nature, I mean you don’t even need to be a Tolkien fan to appreciate the idea!

I would rather have one of these than a tiny house.

I have helped my dad with a big share of the 100+ homes he has built or remodeled in his lifetime, and think this is fabulous. This type of construction is like the sod homes of our fore-families when they came to the plains of the U.S. - warm in the winter, cool in the summer and very little in the way of man-made materials to keep up and replace due to weathering and storm damage. I would LOVE to be part of the crew that builds these! I only know of one other company that is doing anything close to this, and their houses do not really resemble the "hobbit home," but deal with building under dirt.

How much would cost to have a 3 bedroom, 3 bath Hobbit house built, especially in North Dakota?

so is it $41 per square foot and that includes the construction of it? plumber and electric? so in order to have a 1,000 square foot house it would run me $41,000

They show their 1000 sqft house to be 28,000. You have to join their mailing list to see the prices but the site with the prices is all CG rendered or HEAVILY photoshopped pictures which makes me wonder if it's all on the up and up.

have the designers been to the real Hobbiton in New Zealand?? Those NZ Hobbiton (LOTR) houses are so much different than what we are looking at here.

This has all the hallmarks of a similar styrofoam dome scam that's been exposed numerous times over the years. BUYER BEWARE!

I think if you put sand on it instead of turf it'd look like a Tattooine house.
