Dome Housing: The Shire Is Real

We all have that hairy-toed hobbit inside of us whose always wanted to live in the Shire.  The home manufacturer Japan Dome House Co., Ltd. is all about Middle Earth and they want to make those halfling fantasies come true.  These igloo-shaped structures are built from snap-together wall sections made of 100% Styrofoam.  No termites, no rust, no toxic fumes in the event of a fire.

Hobbits from all around Middle Earth will come flocking to your door step to relax in your dome bathhouse as they puff on their pipe-weed and run up your phone bill with that Hobbit phone of yours.  Dome House kits start at around $30,000 which excludes the cost of delivery, assembly and interior construction. I wonder if Peter Jackson will give up his Hollywood home in favor of his very own Bilbo Baggins bachelor pad.

  5. The teletubbies lived in a dome.

  6. I think it’s great options for low income housing. Imagine if we could provide these for people had no home. Seem pretty simple to set up and easy to maintain. I wonder how long they last?

  7. do those two nice ladies come with the housing?

  8. Sooooo cool. I want to live in a dome. Those are awesome.
