Hobbit homes are the newest craze in sustainable architecture, building on the success of earth ships and tiny houses in the market.  Nearly 48% of Americans think that the government is doing too little to protect the environment and many are looking for eco-friendly house building methods.  As the world becomes more eco-conscious, many have looked for more sustainable ways to build homes and the internet is all abuzz about this latest craze in housing, hobbit houses. 

These so-called hobbit homes are “prefabricated modular micro-houses, which are designed to exist as part of the landscape -- just like the homes from the mythical Shire in ‘Lord of the Rings.’"   Costing about $34.74 per square foot, many only take days to build and can be shipped to anywhere in the world.  The appeal of these homes are not just limited to Tolkien fans either.  This affordable housing could be the solution many aspirant homeowners could be looking for.

There are many factors to consider when building a home, besides aesthetics and sustainability.  Even building a hobbit home is a significant investment.  Here’s a few tools to help you decide if you’re ready to build--hobbit house, earth ship, tiny house or a more traditional home.
