Popular hobbit house plans typically feature whimsical architectural touches - such as oversized chimneys, butterfly-style windows and doors with centered knobs - and earthy construction materials like natural stone, hardwood and straw. In traditional Middle-Earth style, most hobbit houses are built into the earth and are covered by grass roofing.
Many hobbit home plans are designed to blend into the natural environment and include space for moss-covered walkways, plenty of surrounding woodland area and natural log interior and exterior furniture. Hobbit homes typically strive to be as eco-friendly as possible, incorporating elements like mud and straw bale insulation, reclaimed wood rafters and lime-plastered walls. Popular hobbit homes are primarily circular in design, with round or oval windows, doors and interior spaces.
