JK Rowling is setting her love for all things Harry Potter in stone by building a summer house reminiscent of Hagrid's Hut in her garden.

The writer plans to install the circular, stone built hut on the fringes of the forest on her Scottish estate, meaning that it's location will also be strikingly similar to Hagrid's haunt in the Potterverse.

Rowling is no stranger to building fantastical structures on her 162-acre estate. The beloved author has also put up a maze of inter-connected tree houses for her youngest children.

The £250,000 (US $ 400,000) structures are built on wooden stilts and feature lanterns, balconies, spiral staircases, and elaborate carvings.

JK Rowling might be the biggest champion of all things Harry Potter when it comes to structures of bricks and mortar, but a Potter fan I stumbled across has given Rowling a run for her money with another sort of brick...

Alice Finch built this incredible scaled model of Hogwarts that consists of a staggering 400,000 bricks.

This staggering replica features hundreds of intricately detailed interiors that were crafted with both the Potter books and movies in mind, and aim to be as accurate as possible.

This epic structure is probably the biggest Lego building ever undertaken by just one person, and has won numerous awards in the builder community for its incredible attention to detail.

Sure, whiling away the summer evenings in Hagrid's house would be idyllic, but you have to admit that this Lego mega-structure would raise way more eyebrows!
