9 posts and not a damn one of the "geek" farkers have pointed out that a "Hobbit" home is not only mostly below ground but also has ROUND doors? This is NOT a Hobbit any thing, it's just a funny shaped house with a strangely curvy roof.

KrispyKritter: everywhere else in america you have to pay huge $$$ for permits and pass inspection just to have a frickin hot water heater replaced, much less the screaming headaches that come with building an entire house. a house based on pre-approved blueprints that conform to local codes. i'm not saying mr. hobbit contractor is blowing somebody, but i'm pretty sure mr. hobbit contractor is blowing somebody.

Rural areas, which this place seems to be in, and not preplanned HMO controlled suburban subdivisions often have more relaxed codes relating to new construction.

Square door, not burrowed out of a hill. Not a hobbit hole.

It'll end up looking like this:

/Also, when I finish building this home, I want to transmit my application to the Academy this year.

FloydA: I say, "Jumping Jesus on a pogo stick! Everybody knows that a Hobbit lives in a hole in the ground! Why the hell do you think they call it a Hobbit, anyway?!"

Now Stuart, do you think a kid like that is gonna know what the queers are doing to the soil?

They're building landing strips for gay Martians.

And what the hell good is a water wheel without water?
