Tree Houses! From the past into the future...

In the future, will we give back the land to native plants and animals and live up in the trees? Hovering aircraft are available now, we just need to wait for the clean energy versions. If we compost our waste, give up plastics and petroleum, grow hydrophonically...what would our new footprint be?

mirrored tree house
A Tree Hotel
Northern Sweden, a light-weight aluminium structure hung around a tree trunk, a 4×4x4m box clad in mirrored glass. The exterior reflects the surroundings and the sky, creating a camouflaged refuge. The interior is made of plywood. Access to the cabin is by rope ladder. I worry about the birds though

futuristic tree house

Modular Tree House
Sybarite, London
. These environmentally friendly, very light-weight prefabricated modular structures are made from 70% recycled materials. Powered by wind. Currently being built worldwide... Really! Waiting for a real picture! We hope one of the new owners will share. There is a place to tie your clean energy hovering aircraft.

tree homes

Fab Tree Hab

Mass Institute of Technology

Live in a tree, not up in a tree...the tree grows in place 'as' the housing structure, instead of the growing, felling and transporting of lumber. A living structure is grafted into shape with prefabricated reusable scaffolds. A roof-top trough harvests water for human use; the plumbing system is positioned to provide for gravity-induced flow and gray-water reuse; a composting system treats human waste and will later return nutrients to the eco-system. archinode.com

What a great diversity of tree houses! I'll run out and buy the book. I favor the more traditional appearance, forgetting the use of steel or aluminum, and have a house underway. Thy say trees make good neghbors - perhaps not in ths instance.

I live in San Diego, and would LOVE to have a tree house of my own. I don't own a home, and NEVER would, in S.D. . If I ever have the opportunity to buy or build one, I would have it somewhere in Oregon or Washington state. WEST COAST ONLY!!!!!!

While I'm.grateful to enjoy these photos I do have a complaint after looking at many treehouse photos,on the,web..especially you tube : wouldn't it be nice to see the interiors of mist of these treehouses..majority of them dont show the inside..am I the only one frustrated by this ? I find it somewhat aggravating.

Matscape? No no no no no no no
 
  • Gabions
     
    Gabion (from Italian gabbia "big" and Latin cavea meaning "cage") a wire cage that is filled with stone or other hard materials.
  • Shell Bathrooms
     
    Cover your bathroom walls with shells!
  • Shell Fireplaces
     
    Options are to glue gun the shells on top or mortar the shells into a surface thinset.
  • Shell Buildings
     
    Waterproof, strong and long lasting. We have been decorating our homes with shells for thousands of years...
  • Shell Walls
     
    Shell encrusted walls were all the rage in the 1700s...and there seems to be a resurgence.
  • Straw Bale Greenhouses
     
    With a minimum R value of 38, straw bale is always a great choice for at least one wall in a cold climate greenhouse.
  • Shed of the Year
     
    Each year in the UK there is a Shed of the Year Contest.
  • Klinker Brick
     
    Klinker or clinker bricks were overcooked rejects, a product of intense and smokey coal-fired kilns. They were considered a waste product until early Craftsman builders found their sculptural architectural merits.
  • Mirrored Buildings
     
    Beautiful buildings but the thought of birds flying into the glass is dreadful, so all large panes of mirror should have a deterrent, like a hawk cut-out or strips of ribbon hanging in front. Nesting season would be a particularly problematic time.
  • Bark Shingles
     
    No maintenance, long lasting, impenetrable poplar bark siding is a cradle to cradle siding option.
  • Bark Walls
     
    Bark Walls. Bark is waterproof and will not rot; its familiar surface is richly graphic.
  • Corrugated Metal Ideas
     
    Reclaimed corrugated metal is the most earth friendly option.
  • Savin Couelle
     
    Architect-sculptor Savin is the son of self-taught organic architect Jacques Couëlle.
  • Recommissioned Silos
     
    Recommissioning local silos is an eco-friendly housing option.
  • Salvaged Wood Interior Walls
     
    Salvaged wood paneling inspiration...
  • Salvaged Wood Bathrooms
     
    Reclaimed wood works well in bathrooms. Either as paneling, backspashes, vanity, flooring or ceiling.
  • Salvaged Wood Sheds
     
    If you do not have enough salvaged wood to build a cabin. Build a salvaged wood shed.
  • Salvaged Wood Cabins
     
    Old wood from barns, farmhouses, factories, even snow fence, is potential siding for a new home.
  • Homes on Stilts
     
    A rising sea level and hurricane-resistant design choice.
  • Boathouses
     
    Boathouses have been around almost as long as boats.
