Designing real-life hobbit hole-style homes is already quite the architectural trend, so it makes sense that a tiny house builder might want to get in on the action. Incredible Tiny Homes recently put the finishing touches to a novel tiny house that, with its curved exterior and custom circular door, might not look too out of place in one of Peter Jackson’s movies.

The Tiny Hobbit House on Wheels is based on a double axle, 20 ft (6 m)-long trailer and comprises a total floorspace of 160 sq ft (14.8 sq m). Its curved exterior features cedar shake siding and a curved roof, and access is gained by a custom hobbit-style circular door. The distinct lack of windows was a design choice specifically requested by the customer.
