Wouldn't it be cool to bring part of the Shire to your own backyard?  It's now possible, at least for your kids, with this complete woodworking plan.  Inspired by the fantasy literature of J.R.R.Tolkien and complete with a rural, old time feel from the books, this small dwelling even comes with the fabled circular front door.

The perfect size for a quaint hobbit or child, it doesn't so much call out for adventure as it coaxes for a sit back and second breakfast.  For something a bit different, but in the same kin of folklore designs, check out the large than life shoe playhouse too!
