A German Treehouse (“Das Treehaus”?)- Ultra-modern (and expensive I’m sure)

If you thought you’ve outgrown your treehouse, guess again. Those who appreciate modern architecture with an unconventional twist will want to plan their next trip to North-West Germany, where you’ll find this contemporary treehouse perched between an alder and an oak in Osnabruck. Designed by architectural firm Baumraum, a company specializing in tree-top dwellings, the treehouse stands out with its curved roof and many windows. Although this modern home carries a totally sophisticated design, it still boasts those traditionally playful elements that make it a true treehouse – a rope ladder, plenty of outdoor deck space, and of course, nature-inspired interiors.

I’ve really been on a treehouse kick lately, esp. as we might be building one collectively (attendees interest/vote pending) at our 2011 Relaxshacks.com Hands-On, Tiny Shetler/House Building Workshopkidcedar@gmail,com for more info and to reserve one of the very few spots we have left. This event is 14 hours long- and loaded open houses of mini cabins, guest speakers and demonstators, freebies, AND MORE….

Here’s brand new video- using one pre-fab facade/side of “The Tree-Rex” treehouse (dual- homeless shelter prototyoe for $110 in materials) that I’m building for a NEW Make Magazine Shoot- yes, a T-rex Shaped Treehouse- in micro form (but useable/inhabitable). We’ll explain all later- and have ANOTHER microvideo on the way about it.
Also, for some of you new readers- I posted a few of my most recent videos that I haven’t said much about/posted much on (I’ll add them with an update after I get back from picking up my pizza downtown)…. please check ‘em out! Thanks!
Alright- “back from pizza”- update (next morning actually- things got crazy)- here’s those other vids…

A Lower Case “A” Frame House/Tiny Cabin
A whimsical structure in the Catskills — entitled Lower Case “a” Frame — is a creative take on the traditional “A” frame house. Designed by installation artist Matt Bua of Brooklyn, NY and found on B-Home Studio blog. I can’t wait to see what “b-home” turns out to be. (from ThisTinyHouse Blog)
