    Most of us have dreamt about living in a fairytale home at some point in our lives. Most people usually outgrow this by the time they’re teenagers and realize that “society” is a cookie cutter mold. Unfortunately, there’s no fairy godmother to sprinkle fairy dust and wish things into existence for us.

    However, some people never gave up looking for the magic. Instead, they bought or fashioned homes to help them preserve that childhood sense of wonder. These houses are amazing in that way.


    1. This is a home build for the Moominvalley Akebono Kodomo park in Japan. This place has solar panels, grass roof tops, and three stories of living space.

    It is decked out in all necessary furniture, and play areas for children. While it may not be currently inhabited, I’m sure many families enjoy visiting and imagining what it would be like to live there.
