London: 'Harry Potter' author JK Rowling is set to build her own 'Hagrid Hut' in the grounds of her home.

Rowling's application to install the stone summerhouse on the edge of Killiechassie Estate, near Aberfeldy in Perthshire, was approved last week by Perth and Kinross Council, reported the Daily Express.

The plans show her new summerhouse look strikingly similar to the house of Rubeus Hagrid, the Keeper of the Keys and teacher at the fictional Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The circular structure will be open to the front, with a stone bench and slate roof. It will, like Hagrid's hut, be situated on the edge of a forest. The approval for the structure stipulates that no trees must be damaged or cut down during the construction.
