J.K. Rowling’s sustainable-wood treehouse is a mini-Hogwarts
Every thing that J.K. Rowling thinks of is magic. Well, maybe not her novels for adults. But definitely this two-story treehouse that looks like a mini-Hogwarts, which she’s building for two of her kids.
Really, it’s two tree houses — one for each child. They’re connected by a rope bridge, but one (the better one, obviously) has a trap door and is closer to the secret tunnel.
It’s hard to call a treehouse that’s bigger than some tiny homes “sustainable,” and this dream-castle is so big it needs zoning approval. But Blue Forest, the company that’s building the treehouse, specializes in “sustainable eco-buildings,” and reportedly the wood for this project will come only from sustainably managed forests. If you’re going to build a $230,000 treehouse, that’s probably the best way to do it. And given the finances to build the treehouse every child always dreamed of, who wouldn’t want to?
