A house fit for a Hobbit

Architect Peter Archer enters the "Hobbit House" during an interview with the Associated Press Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012, in Chester County, near Philadelphia. The 54-inch diameter Spanish cedar door — naturally with a knob right in the center just as Tolkien described — opens with a single hand-forged iron hinge. Several craftsmen said they couldn't hang the 150-pound door on one hinge but a Maryland blacksmith "succeeded on the first try," Archer said. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke)
