Hobbit House rustic-home-office

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Framed with timber arches, the library area forms the heart of the cottage. It provides the owner with a quiet spot to read, reflect and study, surrounded by the Tolkien works and mementos he so dearly loves.
Cathy Lara added this to Geek Out at Home, Comic-Con Style
I would not be surprised to find the owner of this cottage at this year's Comic-Con. A serious collector of J.R.R. Tolkien books and memorabilia, the homeowner wanted to create a small cottage to house and protect his collection. This sure beats a dungeonlike basement, doesn't it?
Timber arches frame the library, a contemplative area where the owner reads and studies Tolkien manuscripts and books.Tour the rest of this private getaway on Houzz
The owner is a serious collector of J.R.R. Tolkien books, manuscripts and artifacts, and The Hobbit House is the ultimate spot for storing and enjoying his collection.

What do you think about the arched-bottom beams? While this would add cost compared to straight beams, it also changes the look significantly. As you can see, it also changes the feel of the space by bringing your eyes up toward the ceiling naturally by following the lines of the arches. Does this interest you?
