Folkart gnome homes are magical, among other things. They’re gateways to another realm where there are rooms filled with beautiful gnome-crafted furnishings. The right gnome home will attract one of the creatures to activate that gateway and set up residence. If they’re happy in their new residence, gnomes will assist their human landlords in their gardening and house maintenance efforts — a priceless form of rent!
Generally, gnome homes are carved from cottonwood bark. Gnomes tend to not be big on right angles, so windows and doors tend to lean or be wavy or circular or teardrop shaped. Gnomes are extremely nimble, so, frequently, steep stairways give access to their dwellings. The backs are hollowed out to let light show through the windows. Some people make homes that hang on the wall, but I prefer ones that can sit on a desk, shelf or mantle. It doesn’t matter how large or small the home is because they’re magical and the gnome is able to deal with the size.
