Have you ever dreamed of owning your dream house? Most of us get our home inspirations from magazines, Pinterest, vlogs, and even movies.

If you can achieve your dream house design, you will be proud of yourself.

Just ask Stuart Grant.

Stuart began building his home in 1984.

Grant did not expect that the outcome of his hard work would resemble a fictional home from one of the highest-grossing films of all time.

Anyone who has watched or is a fan of the “Lord of the Rings” franchise will recognize this whimsical home.

Set in the Scottish woods

The viral home is located near Tomich, Scotland.

Its fame started after Grant’s nephew, Redditor KahlumG, posted a link with the caption, “So my uncle built and lives in his very own hobbit house.”

The link contained one photo, and you would think that it’s a part of Bilbo Baggin’s on-screen house on set, but it’s not.

This “hobbit” house is the real deal!

As you can see in the photo, the outside of Grant’s home already looks whimsical and impressive, but there is so much more to see inside.

Now, Grant wanted to share some clarification for those who think the house was built because he was a fan of the movie.

According to Grant, he has never seen any of the movies that are associated with his home.

In fact, he started building the house many years before the movies came out.

Everything was coincidental.

Grant said that when he started building the house, he was really broke because of his divorce.

“I was living rough. I had a 100-watt bulb, two wooden stools, a camp bed and a gas ring,” Grant recalled.

At first, Granted wanted to live in his small cottage near the hobbit house. Plans changed, and he decided to move into the shed instead.

It was a good move.

That shed used to house farm animals like pigs, chickens, cows, and donkeys.

It wasn’t livable at first.

It was full of cement mixers, tools, and even other types of junk. Grant had a vision and he started to build a roof, and the rest was history.

Now, it’s a rare sight to see.

It is a place that people want to visit. When you enter inside, you are transported into a magical place.

The roof is covered with moss and the walls with ivy.

Twisted tree branches serve as support and accentuate the door.

We also love the cozy lighting, the gorgeous china, quilts, tables and chairs from tree trunks, and so much more.

The whole house looks so sturdy.

And you have to see the stairs!

We adore the toilet seat and the space for his washing machine.

Grant’s home has limited space, but it’s livable, beautiful, magical, and functional.

Bilbo would be impressed.
