Inspiration

When I saw the new kit for the first time, it stumped me. I want to think outside of the box. I love trying to see past whats given and create something unusual. I just couldn’t see past the cute cottage. I showed my husband and shared why I was stuck.

After a quick google search, he showed me this picture. He said the kit reminded him a bit of a hobbit house, minus being imbedded in the side of a hill. Cue angels singing.

I plan on having the house look shorter from the outside, imbedding it into the landscaping. There will be lots of timbers, stone, and brick. Not so much thatch. I’m thinking of a grass covered roof to create the idea of being in a hill.

Round doors painted fun bright colors with carved wood trim. Lots of warm lamp light.

Worn weather wood, round windows, and cracked plaster. Overgrown gardens with vines and flowers.

Right now I haven’t decided on whether or not I will keep the ceilings tall. At one point I had thought of having the ceilings be low and curved like Bag End and create a little root cellar.

Similar to this pantry that was in the movie The Hobbit.

My other thought was to keep the ceilings tall with large wood beams and maybe have a loft area that would be the bedroom. There would be steps from the front door down into the living area, creating a sunken living area feel. I’m sure as I start working on it the vision will become more clear.
