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!

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.
