I can't believe how much fun I'm having with this project (or how obsesses I'm becoming over it, lol).
I am not following a pattern, so I looked at several photo's of Hagrid's hut online. Hagrid's hut seemed to change from movie to movie, with some showing wooden walls, other's showing stone walls. My version has both the dark walls, with some stone around the fireplace, and the bench, just like the original, but I added some other touches for color, like the banner over the door, the Gryffindor crest over the fireplace, and the green shelves.
As I stitched, I caught myself imagining that this was the new Hut, built after the fire in the last movie, lol. The crest is magical, of course, and it changes color, so I outlined it with the normal red and gold, and used different colors inside. The crest wasn't originally magical...the idea just formed in my head, lol, because I realized as I stitched that the person who created the crest pattern used the wrong colors. Here's the link to the free pattern, if you'd like to try it yourself: http://pdfcast.org/pdf/harry-potter-plastic-canvas-patterns I'll also try to embed it below, but if it doesn't work, just click on the link above and it will take you to the pattern. There are crests for the other Hogwarts houses as well.

The fireplace is 3 holes deep on the inside, although it's hard to see in the photos. I'm going to try to sculpt a fire to sit inside.
The doorway wall has two hooks on either side of the door frame. My plastic canvas lantern is hanging on the link. I'm going to sculpt a candle to set inside (the top of the lantern comes lifts off, so it will be easy to add later).
So far, everything except for the banner and crest was made without a pattern.
The house is a bit bigger than standard dollhouse size, because Hagrid is half giant.
I'm going to start working on the outer walls next, then I'll do the floor. I'll do the roof last. I want to make beams that lay across the walls, to hang items like cooking utensils, baskets, and ropes, just like in Hagrid's movie hut.
I'm also going to make a round kitchen table, and possible an easy chair.

I hope you enjoyed the photos.
