J.K. Rowling Building Hagrid's Hut on Her Scottish Estate
It's a case of life imitating art
What does J.K. Rowling do with all her hundreds of millions of dollars? She builds real-life structures straight out of her Harry Potter books, of course.
The Telegraph reported on Thursday that the famed writer has submitted plans to construct a stone-built summer house on the grounds of her Scottish estate, and the plans for the building bear a rather striking similarity to Hagrid's hut from the Harry Potter universe.
Hagrid, played by Robbie Coltrane, is a teacher and gamekeeper in the Harry Potter series. Like Hagrid's hut, Rowling's planned version will be built on the edge of a forest within her 162-acre estate, which also includes a small loch, or lake.
Rowling's Scottish estate is not far from Castle Menzies, which many have likened to Hogwarts.
