DIYer Builds Life-Size Hobbit House That Looks Straight From The Shire

If you ever wanted to get sucked into a fantasy land from one of your favorite books, listen up. What if you could bring that fantasy into reality?

That's exactly what happened to one Lord of the Rings fan who lives in Scotland. This guy actually built himself a real-life Hobbit house and it's pretty incredible when you see it.

Get a load of this place. It looks exactly like Tolkien's Hobbit house.

He must've studied every inch of the fictional house to get all this detail into his real thing.

I totally feel like I'm about to enter another world here. Funny thing — it's actually built to size. What I mean by that is that it's made for someone who's just five-feet-tall.

So if you're not that small you are going to have to duck. Ha, ha!

The house sits on a lovely hillside in Scotland. As you can see, it features a round door, grassy walls, and mossy roofs. There's even a pond nearby.

Where in the world did they even score furniture like that? Wow! The low ceilings are definitely best suited for a Hobbit. But I bet this guy manages to get around just fine.
