    I think it's an amazing idea and project. I'd love to visit there when you're finished. Half the fun will be in the challenge of creating it, a quarter in finishing and another quarter in standing back and seeing your goal completed so beautifully. Elven wishes of galu in your endeavor ...

    Thanks guys. Well I'm planning on throwing a big party after the exterior is covered with earth and the main entrance facade is done :)

    Go to this link to see the entire vilage:

    https://siebenbuergen-fotos.de/ortschaften/michelsberg

    Then click on "Klicken Sie bitte um 360 Panorama zu laden"

    You will then see the panorama. It was taken like just before pouring the exterior walls.
    I don't know who this guy is, I mean the one taking the panorama picture, but the panorama is so cool :cool:

    I'm curious if anybody will spot my house???

    Oh it's lovely! The nitty gritty down and dirty work soars over my head but I love the land and dreaming of how it will look when it is finished. It's a lot of work but once it is complete I know it will be spectacular! I can imagine waking up and walking about in the early morning sunshine and then again at twilight by a quarter moon. It will be so magical! Best of luck...

    Looking brilliant... I guess I never really gave much thought to the dimensions of Bag End but from Tolkien's description and this sketch it fairly resembles your real life Hobbit Hole at least according to WETA.

    Well I've started making the plan of the house from the Weta Bag End plan and adjust it with the exterior of the house that can be seen in the movies. Some things are not accurate, for example in the Weta plan you can see in the right of the main entrance a room and then another room with another angle but in the movies and Hobbiton Bag End you can clearly see that there are 2 rooms one next to each other.
    Also in the movies the window from the Study Room is like the one from the room in the right of the main entrance but in the pics from the exterior of Bag End in NZ, the exterior window from Study Room looks like the window of room number 2 from the right of the main entrance.
    All kind of details that don't match up. I had to decide in a few years how it will be done.
    There isn't anybody here on the forum close to my location? For a visit? :)

    I wish I was close enough for a visit. I am fascinated and jealous of what you are doing. Maybe someday I can travel to England for a visit.

    Hehe well I'm located in Dracula's county, in the heart of Transylvania. To be exact in Sibiu, Romania.

    Ah, well, would I have to traverse the gruesome and grotesque and macabre Forest of Impalement to reach thee?

    If you wish :D
    You can then visit his Castle but be sure to do it doing daylight wearing some garlic necklace, maybe you run into him. His Castle is impressive :)

    Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler) or Dracula as you guys know him, is the one in the right.
