The Hobbit House and Curved Windows

Yesterday, we received this month’s issue of Cottages and Bungalows and were delighted to see a story on the Hobbit House, a modern-day cottage in Pennsylvania that was built based on the famed story by J.R.R Tolkien. About a year or so ago, we recall seeing that amazing “butterfly” window from the same cottage on the back cover of another magazine, Fine Homebuilding.

Although not to the same level of grandeur as the Hobbit window, it does remind us of a large curved window we custom-built for a local historic home a couple of years ago, with that similar curvy-rounded shape. See after picture below:

Thank goodness for magazines that showcase spectacular architecture and craftsmanship (in such a quaint little cottage!) – It gives us readers and trades people alike the inspiration to create and build something out of the ordinary.

I love curves in doorways and windows - there is something so romantic about them. The hobbit window is great, but I actually like your window better. Less fussy! It's just lovely!!

I peeked in on the before and afters and while they are all fantastic, my favorite of all is the first driveway gate on the Spanish-Revival.
