Hobbit House
Bethesda, MD
The Hobbit House, also known as the Mushroom House, started out as an ordinary house built in 1922. In the mid-1970s, Eddie Garfinkle decided to cover the outside with polystucco (spray on foam) insulation to lower energy costs. These photos are from 2006. By 2014, the housed had been painted grey.
