Nooooo, That's Not Spoiling: JK Rowling Building £150K (~$235K) Hogwarts Inspired Treehouses For Her Children

Because what good is having a mom who created an entire fictional world of magic if you can't actually LIVE in that world, JK Rowling is having a giant Hogwarts inspired treehouse complex built for her children in their backyard. So f***ing jealous of those little Muggles right now.

But even by JK Rowling's standards the 40ft high, two-storey tree houses planned for the back garden of her Edinburgh mansion are something spectacular.


Each wooden tree house is to be built on stilts and boasts balconies, carvings and turrets that wouldn't look out of place in a Potter adventure.

The towers are linked by a rope bridge and can be approached by a secret tunnel hidden underneath a raised wooden walkway.

Man, this really got me thinking. What if we ALL lived in Ewok treehouse cities? Wouldn't that be cool? Plus we would be like, getting back to nature and stuff. "The entire forest would be covered in empty beer cans and pizza boxes." Goats, bro -- they'll eat anything.

Hit the jump for a bunch more of the renderings.

Thanks to Zobbit, who agrees there's no greater feeling of freedom than peeing over the railing of your treefort.
