I want:

Roald Dahl's writing hut

"Is there anybody who hasn't at one time or another wished for such a place, hasn't turned those soft words over until they'd assumed a habitable shape? What they propose, to anyone who admits them into the space of a daydream, is a place of solitude a few steps off the beaten track of everyday life."

-Michael Pollan

"It is a cozy nest and just room in it for a sofa, table, and three or four chairs, and when the storms sweep down the remote valley and the lighting flashes behind the hills beyond and the rain beats upon the roof over my head—imagine the luxury of it."
-Mark Twain, in a letter to William Dean Howells, 1874
(Mark Twain's letters are some of my favorite things to read)
I will have one of these one day. Maybe, if you're lucky, I'll invite you over.
