You Can Be A Real Life Hobbit Too

 

If your’e anything like Ashley Yeates, you might want to build a hobbit home in your backyard.  (I mean….. who wouldn’t want that, right?!?0  Well, before you get started, check out how Ashley replaced the roots of an old dead tree with a giant hole, thus leading to his very own backyard hobbit home in Bedford, England .

 

30-year-old Ashley Yeates is not a hobbit. The Bedford, England, is a design and construction expert that’s much too big to be a hobbit, although rumor has it his feet might be just as hairy–but despite these shortcomings, he decided to build a “hobbit hole” in his garden, a project that took almost a year to complete. After a tree died in the yard, he decided a hole was just the thing to take its place!

This is how all (modern) Hobbit Holes begin
