Building Hagrid’s Hut


Killiechassie House, the £1.9 million Scottish estate author J.K. Rowling calls home, will gain a new addition: a circular stone hut similar to the hut that Hagrid resides in at Hogwarts. The summer cottage recently received approval from the local council, on the condition that no tree was harmed in its construction, reports the Independent.
