According to the FB poster, these folks were denied a shelter permit, so they built a table and chairs instead.

Just like the original log cabins in Yellowstone. The guy was denied a permit for cabins, but got a permit for cutting firewood and asked, "do you care how I stack it?"

NIce... but what I really want to know is, where can I get some of those tiny horses?

That photo breaks my brain.

If you look closely, you will notice that the shadows of the fence do not match those of the horses/furniture.

photoworks project.

Here's another shot, with different horses/horse groupings: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/picturesoftheday/8864437/Pictures-of-the-day-2-November-2011.html?image=7. There is also a third view during snowy weather, but I didn't save that link.

I researched it quite a bit to see if it was photo shopped, and to find the source. I think it is a real structure. A couple posters say that a German wood designer, Jens Braun, built it. I think it's likely that he built it as a piece of art that had nothing to do with any permit, but the photo was tagged that way by someone. If someone can search in Deutsch, perhaps we'd get the real scoop.
 
She'll be back. I'm just gonna wait here. With this tiny ad:
