Dallas-based grandparents Steve and Jeri Wakefield built this 100 square foot structure for their grandsons. It has a climbing wall, slide, and zip line!


13. A Fairy Tale Castle

Heinz and Hildegard Schonewolf of Dudweiler, Germany, spent 37 years of their life building this 350 square foot, liveable castle in their backyard. I want to go to there.


18. A Western Town

Retired dentist Jimmy Helms spent 14 years turning his backyard in Texas into something straight out of the Old West, complete with a general store, saloon, schoolhouse, and small church.

Located at the edge of a cliff in in Baños, Ecuador, this swing takes those crazy enough to ride it over an enormous abyss.
