Take Your Hobbit House With You

Fans of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are going to love this tiny home. The so-called, and very aptly named, Tiny Hobbit House on Wheels is exactly that, a Hobbit-worthy abode that’s also towable. It was designed by the company Incredible Tiny Homes and looks awesome.

The Tiny Hobbit House on Wheels rests atop a 20 ft (6 m)-long trailer and boasts of a total floorspace of 160 sq ft (14.8 sq m). The exterior is clad in cedar shake siding, while entry is gained via a custom-made circular door. This is also the only opening in the whole house, since it has no windows. This was requested by the customer who commissioned it. The home also features a curved roof.

The interior appears quite spacious and features a well-sized kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. There is no dedicated living area, which was again the customer’s wish. Storage space is provided in the loft above the bathroom and under the bed. The kitchen features a fridge, a farmhouse sink, and a propane-powered stove. The bathroom is also quite roomy and features a large shower with dual showerheads, a custom-designed vanity sink, and a composting toilet.

The Tiny Hobbit House on Wheels needs to be connected to a standard RV hookup for electricity, but it does have a tankless propane-powered water heater on board. All that’s missing is a solar power array, and this could be an off-the-grid home, but there is no word on whether the owner is planning on installing one.

It took them about two weeks to build it, and it cost $35,000, which is quite affordable, given the amount of originality that went into designing it. I’m not sure I’m a big fan of the no windows situation, but I suppose the occupants get more privacy this way.
