Stockholm island to house hobbit village

Self-sustainable and eco-friendly farm, village – and pub

The Stockholm island of Muskö will be the home for a village that looks like those inhabited by the hobbits from J.R.R. Tolkein’s “The Lord of the Rings”, according to developers. “Living in a hobbit house is the smart and sustainable way to live in the future,” the project’s co-founder John Higson told The Local. Higson and his wife had already been planning a self-sustainable and eco-friendly farm and village, but in 2011 they discovered a hobbit-like home designed and built in Wales by innovator Simon Dale.
“Seeing Simon’s houses blew me away. They’re beautiful, unique and completely sustainable, and what a fantastic way to live,” Higson said.
The first house will be completed by the end of the year, and 15 more are planned, possibly including a pub.
