Large Woodland Fairy Apartment

The idea of a tree where Fairies live is something that came from books I had as a child.  Wonderfully illustrated by Garth Williams, the magic of which has given me a lifetime of enjoyment.  Fairies living in trees and Elves and other Wee folk living in boroughs and tree stumps, indeed!  So occasionally a piece of wood would come along that seemed to fit this description of magical homes for wee ones and I would undertake the large task of making it. These homes are rare for their particular wood requirements and for the difficulty and effort in their construction.  The end result is however, undeniably desirable!  This apartment is unusually large and nice. It is made from windfall Aspen with a cedar roof and floor.
