The Hobbit Hole
After about a year of work, four pick a brick orders, and the countless times I've been told, "Clean up your legos!", here it is. This is by far my greatest MOC yet!
About this creation
In the land of Middle-earth, there are many races, all equally intriguing. Some warlike, some pacifists. Some evil, some good. But there is no race more charming and charismatic than the hobbits.

Two such hobbits, who happen to be my favorites, are Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins. Frodo is Bilbo's adopted son, and they live together in the most fantastic Hobbit Hole in all of the shire, in Hobbiton. Up in Bag-end, they enjoy the summer breeze as it passes over the river and through the vegetable garden though the round windows of their home.

Here's a shot out front of Bilbo smoking in the front yard, Frodo welcoming Gandalf, and Gandalf's fireworks cart. There is also another hobbit on the bridge, fishing.


IMG_2676

A focus on the bridge.


IMG_2641

Notice the mushrooms, a hobbit's favorite, growing in the shadow of the bridge on the damp riverbed. I would not advise you to eat the black, poisonous one.

IMG_2672

Two arial views of the front.


IMG_2634

The river, with waterlilies floating on it, and a cherry tree behind it.


IMG_2633

Frodo's gardener, Sam Gamgee, tends the vegetables.


IMG_2664

Another shot of the corn.

This tree is one of the best parts of this MOC. I'd gotten about 80 of those leafy pieces at a lego store brickwall, and I had planned to make trees like this. When I realized that I needed the bigger leafy pieces to do that, I was disappointed. That is, until I figured out this design. I think that this is the best way to make a tree.


IMG_2640

More of the tree.


IMG_2658

The chimney, with smoke blowing in the breeze.


IMG_2655

A shot of the whole back.


IMG_2635

Gandalf arrives.
Take note of the curved stone wall, using studs as hinges along its length. There is one on both sides.


IMG_2654

IMG_2642

More of Gandalf and the fireworks. In his fun-loving nature, he has set off a few of them for the delighted hobbit children.

Gandalf dismounts and goes inside.

Aerial view of the entire outside.
Now, let's take a look inside.

IMG_2723

Here's an overview of the entire inside. The roof, smoke, and tree just pop of, leaving the chimney.


IMG_2720

Aerial view of the interior.


IMG_2692

The door.


IMG_2694

The door design.


IMG_2697

The sitting room directly left of the entrance.


IMG_2702

Cloaks on a hook in that room.


IMG_2685

The library/study. I love how the quill pen worked, and the map.


IMG_2682

Another view. You can see a candy jar.


IMG_2686

View of the kitchen. A "recipe" on the wall. I believe that's actually for Polyjuice Potion... no worries. Some carrot soup cooking.


IMG_2689

In this picture, you see the supply of carrots and the plates, cups, and forks. I've long wanted to use those hinges for forks.
Interestingly, there is no table in the whole place to set with those dishes... oh well.
Note the beer keg in the corner.


IMG_2703

A shot of the fireplace. You will find Sting, the One Ring, and the clock that the dwarves in "An Unexpected Party" left a note under, all sitting on the mantle.


IMG_2704

One of the armchairs by the fire. The table has on it a chess board and a deck of cards.


IMG_2713

The bedroom. I just love the sock and cloak in the chest.


IMG_2710

A small bookshelf and a chest of drawers with a book.


IMG_2709

The dresser, with a mirror above it. A brush lies on top with a letter, and a cap is hung on a pole.


IMG_2706

The wall adornments.


Well folks, that's all for today. I hoped you loved this MOC as much as I loved making it.

And remember...

Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.

Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star,
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.

Quoting Ian Spacek Awesome! I like the fireworks!
Thanks, however, the dragon firework is not of my design, sadly. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/2733 This MOC gave me that technique.

Quoting Blake Baer 3rd look, just in case you didn't notice that I had already commented twice already;). Great little build here. Nice work with the landscape.
Thanks

Quoting jeff pease Well done, it looks very good. Though just to note in the hobbit it says that the door is green, and not red, but nonetheless it looks terrific.
Yeah, I tried originally using a lime green, but it looked too fake, and i tried using a dark green, but it blended in with the grass too much.

Quoting Blake Baer 2nd look: I noticed the door that actually swings. My hobbiton is left feeling somewhat cheated by the fact that mine does not swing. Excellent addition.
Thanks a ton! The bricks were a little stressed to make that happen- the two red clamps that attach to the tan rod are pushed together when the whole mechanism is attached.

Quoting Ru Corder Great! The interior is by far the best part though.
Thanks! I totally agree, although I really like the tree.

Quoting Blake Baer Wow this is actually really cool, thanks for telling me about it Jake! The pictures are fantastic as far as clarity goes! Also I really like all the details in this place. The mushrooms are a nice touch as well. While it is rather simple it has an effective atmosphere and is drastically underrated. Fantastic build!
Thanks, yeah, my mom is a pretty serious photographer, so she has a really good camera that she lets me borrow. Thanks for the comments!!

Quoting redhead1982 lego It's fantastic! It has a very simplistic touch, but all in all, it's great. Knowing the story, it makes it just perfect. Congratulations on this!
Thanks! I'll check out some of your MOC's when I get the chance.

Quoting Nick Nitro Brick wonderful! i can't believe there are only a few comments on because this is awesome If I had to say one thing that could be changed it would be that the hill needs to be more rounded because it looks very blocky but other wise it is great/
Yeah, you are right. I ran out of green though, even after ordering more. I just posted this yesterday, so that's why there are only a few comments. Thanks!!
