JK Rowling builds Hogwarts-style tree house

LONDON (AP) - J.K. Rowling is building two tree houses fit for a wizard.

Despite some complaints from neighbors, the City of Edinburgh Council says Thursday it has approved the Harry Potter author's application to create tree houses in her garden for her children. The structures, each about 40 feet high, feature tall conical roofs and turreted windows in the style of Hogwarts Castle in the Harry Potter movies.

Several neighbors had written to object, saying the tree-houses may be visible from the road and could affect the area's landscape.

But the council granted Rowling's request, saying the development will not have a negative impact on the conservation area.

Rowling lives in Edinburgh with her husband and three children.
