In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit.

The water meter for this house is out front, underground, beneath a kind of manhole. Whoever installed the cover thought that plywood would be a good support for cast iron. Eventually, of course the plywood rotted away and the cover assembly fell into the hole. Last year, I replaced what was left of the plywood with some leftover Trex decking, but then I had this circle of Trex cut out from the middle, and a hillside full of pavers in back of the house…

Hobbit Hole, 1105A

It could probably use some more work on the stones, and maybe some iron banding across the front, but for now at least it is out of the garage.
