Design Explorations for a Modern Modular “Hobbit House” Or Bag End 2.0 -=- Presented by Fred Bartels
“Books sometimes plant seeds that may lie dormant for years, waiting for the right opportunity to sprout and flourish. As a boy I read J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit” and it placed an image in my mind of a warm, cozy home with a curved turf-covered roof.
That seed of an image remained ungerminated for many years, until a wonderful (and free) Computer Aided Design program called SketchUp made 3D design easily accessible to design amateurs like myself.
Over many years, as I played with and developed some mastery of SketchUp, the Hobbit House concept grew and began throwing off many branches. I first worked on overall house design concepts, without worrying much about how the designs might be built. More recently I’ve been exploring various techniques and approaches that might be used to bring these designs to life.
In this display are images and models of some of the approaches I’ve found interesting. I’ve also built some larger prototypes that are too big to be displayed here. Most of the SketchUp design files I’ve used in this work are available on the SketchUp 3D Warehouse at this URL: https://goo.gl/HnxNwK
I may never build a modern modular Hobbit House using these ideas but I have had great fun exploring them, and they’ve helped keep me connected to Tolkien’s delightful world, and the youth who discovered and wandered enchanted in that realm so many years ago.” – Fred Bartels
