Tucked away in Bedford, England is a hobbit hole with a very modern twist. While no real hobbits reside there, the house is exceptionally made.
After a tree died in his backyard, Ashley Yeates decided to repurpose the space into this brilliant storage space. Keep in mind Yeates isn’t your ordinary DIYer. He’s a design and construction expert, and the project took him and his pal, Alec, a year to complete.
It started off with a hole big enough to fit a sturdy wooden frame. If you’re curious on how such a structure would take on unpredictable weather, Yeates made sure to cover all his bases early on and incorporated “plenty of waterproof layers.”
Next up was creating the actual structure, once again keeping moisture control in mind. He also made sure the surface of the hobbit hole would eventually be mow-able.
After competing the outside, the duo took on the interior, which turned out equally impressive. They built a mini staircase, created a workstation, and even equipped the space with electricity. And that’s not all:
With a built in kitchenette and planned gaming/cinema system, this hobbit hole is turning out to be a pretty decent place to hang-out. Especially with the dimming lights and air-cooling system.
Plus, check out the ample storage areas.
