On Etsy since 2011

A family operation in rural Maine with the dream of bringing our unique Hobbit Hole designs and high quality craftsmanship to homes everywhere

The inception of Wooden Wonders was inspired by the birth of our first son, Richard. Rocy is a carpenter by trade and his work required him to travel and work long hours away from home. We wanted to build a business that would utilize Rocy's talent as a designer and craftsman that would also allow us to be based out of our home.
Rocy spent his childhood reading fantasy novels and playing out the characters in the fantastical worlds he loved in the back woods of his family home. Our business is the result of combining Rocy's imagination, penchant for design, and woodworking skills.
We brought our first Hobbit Hole to the 2009 Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, Maine along with a castle tower playhouse prototype. We were absolutely swarmed with playing children all three days of the event, so we knew we had something that appealed to kids, but what was really telling was the reaction of amazement and curiosity we received about the Hobbit Hole. We knew we had a winning concept.
We hit the ground running and started designing and building Hobbit homes for many more applications than playhouses: storage shed, summer room, outdoor home office, pig barn, bus stop, sauna, and the list goes on.
All the varied applications we executed with our Hobbit Hole designs over the first few years of the business allowed us a tremendous opportunity to refine and improve our designs so that we would be well positioned to enter into the next phase of the business. We had been building all of our products for customers individually on a custom basis, and if we wanted the business to grow, we had to evolve.
We needed an established product line that worked in a production-oriented facility where we could have employees help us build Hobbit houses. We also needed products that we could crate and ship. We love living and working in the community where we were born and raised, but being located in central Maine has its disadvantages. We are far from our customer base, and we couldn't continue to personally deliver every Hobbit Hole we built!
The first product we started to ship were our first generation Hobbit Hole chicken coops (because they were small enough to crate and ship), then we developed our second generation Hobbit Hole playhouses that are designed as kits that can be shipped anywhere in the contiguous U.S. and assembled by the customer. These have proven to be our most popular designs!
Our second generation chicken coops were released January 2014, followed by our sod roof ready "Bag End" playhouse design. Visit our website for more info. We also take a very limited number of orders for custom adult-sized Hobbit Holes. Think studio, home office, sauna, etc. Contact us if you'd like information about the range of available styles, sizes, and pricing.
We're very excited about the future, and where this endeavor will take us. We plan to keep on doing everything we're doing, but better.
We couldn't do it without our wonderful customers who share our love for great design executed with skill and integrity. If you think what we're doing is great, help us tell the world about it! We thank you.

Returns and exchange details
Because of the complexity and high degree of skill required to crate our products for shipping, we do not accept returns.

If there is a problem with your order, we will work with you to rectify the problem. In the event a product ships from our warehouse with damage or is otherwise defective, we will work with you to provide replacement parts if available and/or partially refund you for the equivalent value of the damaged part or component.

If a product is damaged in shipment, we must be notified within 24 hours of receipt of the shipment. The customer will inspect the shipment for damage before accepting delivery. In the event that damage has occurred, the customer will specifically document the damage on the delivery receipt and/or bill of lading before you sign for the delivery. Wooden Wonders will take responsibility for filing a claim with the freight company. Please understand that resolving the claim with the carrier may take up to 90 days. Your credit for the damaged item may be delayed while the claim is resolved with the freight company, and we may require your assistance as we pursue the claim for damage.
Shipping
Your Hobbit Hole will be freight shipped. The freight company will call you to schedule delivery and when available will use a "lift gate" delivery service that will unload the product curbside from the truck for you. Please call us if you have questions about shipping: 1-855-HOBBITHOLE

Your Hobbit Hole is shipped in ready-to-assemble kit form and requires assembly. We will provide all the hardware needed and assembly instructions. You will just need a few basic tools.
