In a hole in the ground...

 

a hobbit hole

 

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." ... that's how the famous story begins, and here's where my story starts, too.

 

Hi, my name's David, and over the next couple of years I'm going to be building my own underground house here in the Japanese countryside, inspired by the fantasy home of Bilbo Baggins in J.R.R. Tolkien's book "The Hobbit". Please join me in this DIY adventure and follow along with my regular progress videos!!
