Building a Hobbit Hole Bed and Breakfast
Step out of everyday life, and into the Shire. Have a chance to spend the night in a Hobbit Hole. Make Fantasy a reality.
(More drawing to come.)
This isn't going to be your run of the mill Bed and Breakfast but shaped like a hobbit hole. Oh no, its going to be an adventure. You will find yourself thrown into a life of adventure, with all the necessary tools to make it so. Step into a fantastically crafted hobbit hole, decorated with all the trappings and details you would expect to see of such a place. Find costumes that will let you become your favorite characters. Act out your favorite scenes or make up your own. You will also be delighted with food that would tickle the fancy of any hobbit. You won't just step into a hobbit hole, but into world of magic.
The Hobbit Hole
In this Hobbit Hole I will be building, I will add massive amounts of details that will make you forget the world of Humans. It will have a stone fire place as the center piece of the living room. Lounge in a large conferrable chair as you warm your feet by the fire. Pull up a hand crafted chair to the dinning table to enjoy a truly hobbit like meal. In the bed room, you will be able to find a wardrobe of themed cloths to help the imagination in its wonderings. While authentic hobbit holes would not have a bathroom, this hobbit hole will include a full working bath room. Electricity will also be a feature that hobbits in the past have not enjoyed. Of course it will feature round doors and ceiling. It will also have grass growing on top.
I will be using local artist to create decorative pieces. Some of these will include paintings, blown glass, and wood carvings.
Food offered will consist of Hobbits delights. Fresh berries, cheeses, jams, bread, eggs, sliced meats, meat and fruit pies are all things you will find set before your table. Feast upon the food that will satisfy any hobbit.
Everyone knows what a Hobbit Hole is, but few people can travel worlds away to experience one for themselves. This Bed and Breakfast helps close the gap of that dream. With no oceans to cross, this forest setting brings the magic much closer to home. Even though you will feel out in the distant country, this beautiful spot is only ten minutes form downtown Salem OR, just in case you need some modern items to take back to middle earth.
I am looking for funds to supply materials. I will gather all that is need and put it together.
I wanted to let you know that this is a pilot project. If there is enough feed back for this project, I have a 36 acre piece of land that I would like to make more hobbit holes. There I will be able to host events like themed parties or wedding. It will also features many activities. These include: fishing, gardening, horse riding, boating and a few others. This is a big dream, but with a little imagination, we can make it happen.
Risks and challenges
My largest concern with this project is the weather. It rains a lot in Oregon, and little will be able to be accomplished on the exterior if this happens. I plan on doing all exterior construction first before I put any details into the interior. After I have the structure water tight, I can spend as much time as I need making the inside and have all the comforts of home. Also, to help speed up the project, I will acquire the needed permits as soon as we reach the funding goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
