Is it possible to build a hobbit house?

It would be entirely possible, assuming you scaled it for normal humans rather than 3–4 foot tall Hobbits (or unless you were able to find 4-foot-tall contractors). Hobbit holes would fall under the category of “earth-sheltered homes.” You could build your hole a couple of different ways.

Also asked, how much would it cost to build a hobbit home?

To get your own Hobbit house, it costs $41 per square foot. So for 1, 000 square feet, it'll cost you $41, 000. You'll be living like a Baggins in no time.

Likewise, can you buy a Hobbit House? You can now get pre-fabricated Hobbit homes that can be built in just three days. Just like Frodo's house, they are designed to form part of the landscape. Once built, they can be covered with soil and turf, to create your own roof garden. You can even plant your own vegetable plot on top.

Can you stay in a hobbit hole?

Private gardens outfitted with benches and pathways complete the exterior of each hobbit house. While the original property, The Encampment, is comparable to luxury camping, staying at The Burrows will be more like staying inside of a house.
