Shire Sized - Cozy Cottage

Hobbit house


This modestly sized lake front day-home was designed to be whimsical and practical, with details and finishes that are a sublet nod to realms of Middle Earth.

With a look and feel that would not be out of place in any J.R.R. Tolkien story, this Hobbit inspired cottage is both simple and elegant with large custom finished heavy timber details, open plan living area, and custom curved doorway crafted by our fine woodworking division NEWwoodworks.
