Tiny Tubular Microlodge Hobbit House

hobbit house microlodge people

Steve Millar sent me a link recently to this amazing little creation. It’s a tubular tiny house available in the UK. They are 14-feet long and 8-feet in diameter and is constructed from pressure treated 2×4’s and tongue & groove weatherboard coated with Sadolin varnish. The roof is covered in Rubberoid hexagonal shingles. The front doors are 5′ 10″ tall by 2′ 6″ wide. These are designed to be simple lodging units but would make a great backyard shed office or even a novel tiny house. For more information visit microlodge.co.uk. Also see a video on Tiny House TV.

    I love the hobbit houses! They remind me of the houses built inside giant redwood trunks. Too bad my 6’4″ husband couldn’t get inside the door.

    There is indeed something very comforting of the image of the homes we got from the LOTR movies, and this house does seem to catch it well.

    As for the size, I think that’s a call for an article and and sketch up, Michael. “Little houses for big people.” (As a side note, I’m retaining the copyright for that title, licensing can be discussed. :D)
