The Ulitimate Tree Friendly Tree House

Design Inspiration

You’ve gotta love a home builder who respects Mother Nature and whose main inspiration for creating this super symbiotic “tree house for adults” was because, as an environmentalist,  architect Peter Bahouth wanted to go home at night and “see what I had accomplished.” Instead of clear cutting and leveling the ground, seven trees were literally built into and around the planning and constructing of this house. Now, that’s making friends with your neighbors.
