Couple’s DIY Hobbit-Inspired Tiny Home

Delightful Hobbit Tiny Home on Wheels!

Meet Mary Lou, Jacob, and their Hobbit-inspired tiny home, called The Prancing Pony. Their unique DIY shuttle bus conversion is full of clever surprises, cottagecore vibes, and nerdy delights. Most importantly, it's their key to a major slow lifestyle shift—a way to grow, adventure and discover where they want to homestead in the future.

"That's a big theme in how we were striving to live our lives when we were in Los Angeles: big little things. Concentrating on small things you do for yourself, for your partner, that make a really big difference, and living this lifestyle really really allows for that on a much more regular basis.

Just the opportunity to live simply, slowly, and with a lot of meaning is really nice."

Inside their Hobbit-Inspired Tiny Home

Mary Lou and Jacob's Hobbit-inspired tiny home shuttle bus conversion is a true labor of love. Both of them worked to hand-craft details to meet their needs, from daily activities to board games, all while infusing their space with organic shapes and rich textures. For instance, they created curved window shapes framed in white with deep velvety green curtains.

Their aesthetic choices didn't interfere with functionality. Mary Lou and Jacob packed in loads of storage, all secured for easy, safe transport. One of the most impressive areas is the back lounge space. It's a multifunctional wonder serving as a sofa, desk/dining table/gaming space, and storage for water & board games. As if that wasn't enough, it also transforms into a full-size bed.

For them, the process of setting up the bed adds is a gratifying slow living routine. Good news: when they're not feeling well, they can leave the bed set up and use their compact counter-height table with repurposed stool seating!
