Built with a passion inspired by the movie trilogy Lord of The Rings which were adapted from the books written by author J. R. Tolkien and with guidance perceived to be directly from “Mother Nature”, Master Stone Mason Joe Thompson with the assistance of his family and friends brought his vision of a life size Hobbit House to life.
To the left of the front door is the “Heart Stone”, a very important element to be included when creating a structure of this nature. The Hobbit House has energy of its own. When one enters within there is more often then not felt the experience of being overcome with wonder and awe accompanied with a noted admiration as to the level of craftsmanship and attention to detail with each stone having “chosen” its individual placement. On the back wall is a tribute to “Mother Nature” and a message for all to consider in their own contemplative way.
More than the incredible beauty of the Hobbit House many may notice the calming energy that can be experienced within it. It as if one is being drawn into the welcoming gentle embrace of the Hobbit House itself.
In honor of Joe’s passionate vision encompassing three years of his life the name Middle Earth Canine Academy was chosen.
