The Hobbit House

Laupen Homes, LLC.

Nestled in the woods, this 1900sf small home lives large with both a whimsical storybook feeling and state of the art green building practices.

Traditional proportions with oversized storybook detailing, give this house a magical feel. The house is sited on the large wooded lot allowing for southern orientation to the major living spaces. A cleverly designed floating loft integrates light wells and a passive ventilation system. Prominent visual layering and interior views provide visual connection to the outdoors as large southern facing glass provides solar heat for the house.

A Built Green Level 5 with a HERs rating of 52, hydranic radiant in-floor heat, extra insulation, air tight sealing and a heat recovery ventilator make this a very energy efficient home! Hard surfaces, low VOC paints and finishes, with attention to longevity meld a rich material pallet with sustainable attitude. The home’s curves, whimsy and round, hand-carved front door have earned this charming home the nickname of “The Hobbit House”
