Here's my newest puzzle:

Quite modest--but put there all during one vacation, and there's no waiting involved.

Is this a description? Of something tangible? Is it an alternative to something where there is waiting involved? Was it built? Is it a cottage?

Is it a building? Put there=built? Constructed? Planted? Is it a place to spend a vacation? Would the waiting have involved: physically queuing? Waiting for something to happen? To be come available? Was it removed after the vacation?

Is it a building? Put there=built? Yesish Constructed? Yesish

To clarify, the building took place in two stages, only one of them in the final location ("there"). The other stage did not take place during the vacation.

Planted? No Is it a place to spend a vacation? No. Would the waiting have involved: physically queuing? Yes Waiting for something to happen? To become available? Yesish to this and the last one, but be careful mislead Was it removed after the vacation? No

Oh, and No to "is it a building?". It was built, but not a building as we would think of it

Is it a pool? Is it built at home? Is it built by a person/private entity? Is it premade in a factory, and bought ready for assembly? Would the relevant queue be of people? Vehicles? Other?

Someone builds a rollercoaster at their home (in the backyard? on a farm?). It's not a very big one, but they built it during one vacation and they don't have to stand in long queues to get to ride it.

Yes, except for the one detail that you didn't specify who was on vacation. But since you pretty much got it, I'll tell you it was the wife of the guy who built the roller coaster. Imagine what it would be like to come home to find a roller coaster in your backyard! You can find out more by watching this video:

She hoped it would be a new kitchen. I say, when you have a roller coaster, the kitchen can wait! And I think many of even the women I know would agree.
