When Bungo Baggins married Belladonna Took, he didn’t realize she came with two remarkable sisters. If three is a crowd, four is a mob. And a mob – even one made of hobbits – simply won’t do in one tiny smial. Factor in any future fauntlings, and he really can’t be blamed for coveting something more spacious. Too bad no one informed him that building it himself would be so… so… whatever this is!
What follows is an entirely respectable account of the building of Bag End, inspired by the 1948 classic Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House.
