EDINBURGH, Scotland, July 24 (UPI) -- "Harry Potter" scribe J.K. Rowling revealed she is spending $388,000 to build a pair of interlinked tree houses for her kids in Scotland.

Rowling submitted drawings to Edinburgh Council planners showing each of the tree houses, one for her 9-year-old son and another for her 7-year-old daughter, will be accessible through tunnels built in the garden of her home and the two houses will be linked by a rope bridge, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.

"It would be highly unlikely that J.K. Rowling will not get permission for these tree houses," a council source said, "They are only for her children to play in, she's not seeking permission for residential permission for them."
