A Graduation!…..and a Bunch of Pictures

Concealed within his fortress the Lord of Mordor sees all.

His gaze pierces, cloud, shadow, earth, and flesh.

You know of what I speak Gandalf:

A great Eye, lidless, wreathed in flame.


The Eye of Sauron.


Welcome friends of Middle Earth to another installment of the Hobbit Hollow Construction Blog! Had to get in some Lord of the Rings quotes in there right at the start. There’s no need to explain to those of you who get it. That’s all I’m gonna say.

For the record we were up in the Albany, New York area going to our son Jude’s graduation from Sienna College. And just for the record the ceremony was ridiculously long. Over three hours. Glad that’s over with. That was Sunday. Saturday they had a mass and a cocktail hour afterwords which was really nice. Then we went out to dinner with Jude, Terence, and Ethan. That was a quick 4 years. It really is amazing how fast time flies by. Scary.

Jude did well. We’re proud of him.

Don’t have time for much here though. A couple of pictures.

Railing installed at the stairs on Thursday.
Chimney done and capped.
Jude getting his diploma.

That’s three down one to go for me!

Yeah baby!!!

Walkway stones set.

The chimney looks good right?

Don’t forget the open house is next Saturday the 19th of May!

Have a great week!

    Wow! Your Hobbit House looks fantastic. I wish I could be there for the open house but you can probably guess where I am today. Congratulations on a fine piece of work.
