The Fairy-Home builders are at it again. Donating their time, energy, and building supplies to help ease the homelessness crisis of the Fairies.
You may recall that last year this same crew worked on a house for Fairy-anity (Click Here) and helped at least one Fairy find a home. That one house did make a difference, however, there are still countless Fairies out there sleeping under leaves and curling up into flowers at night. More Fairy houses need to be built.
To accommodate the varied tastes and needs of the Fairies, this year's Fairy House is markedly different than last years. First off, the 2015 house is located right in the front garden instead of under the big pine tree. The colour scheme and fencing is also more subdued by the use of natural colours and materials. And, as with human housing, a built-in pool is not always a desired feature.

The Pebble Place

This year's Fairy House (The Pebble Place) was loosely based on designs by a well know Fairy architect Rockcandy, who's mantra is: BE FUN. BE FUNCTIONAL

Location, location, location -  This year's house is located in the primest of prime locations : amongst the hostas and lillies of the front garden. Close to amenities such as the water spout, the front door, and the outdoor power outlet. The neighbourhood is sparsely populated, recently mulched, and always a priority when it comes to outdoor infrastructure improvements. As well, there is no chance of the lawnmower accidentally rolling over any housing. What more could a fairy ask for?

Real estate is 90% location
The house name, The Pebble Place, comes from the magnificent pebble walkway. An inviting path, lined with pinecones, leads the way up to the front door.

Premium riverstone is used to create the walkway
The door is a custom designed, hand crafted, wood door made by Elli. Hot glued popsicle-sticks have proven to hold up to any weather thrown at them, ensuring the Fairies will be snug and secure in their home.

All Fairies love entertaining outdoors. A lovely (and functional) wood chair and table set, set amongst the flowers, is sure to be well used by any Fairy family. This charming set was imported from Riley's garden supply, located only a few kilometers from the PUTP.

To add some fun, a Fairy sized tree swing was installed. This feature is sure to bring squeals of delight from the younger set. Its location, set on the opposite side of the path, will give enough distance from the adults to allow everyone to have a grand time.

Directions: Front Yard, head south two steps, east two steps and look for the sign "Fairy Lane". Actual street address is #1 Fairy Lane.
