Grown up Tree Fort

Why should those darn kids have all the fun? Tree Forts are all grown up. A new book by Philip Jodidio explores the essence of place, perched high among the treetops. Elegant, Modern, and uniquely connected to nature. There is something downright magical about a birds eye view and the opportunity to take pause, to look at the world with fresh eyes. A great summer DIY project, a tree house need not be ‘fancy’, rather a simple retreat even in our own back yard offers a fresh perspective. An opportunity to create a focal point and tranquil destination in the landscape.

treehouse4An excerpt from the book:  ”a perch from which to contemplate life—the tree house can take as many forms as the imagination can offer. In times of concern for sustainability and ecological responsibility, the tree house may also be the ultimate symbol of life in symbiosis with nature. Whether rustic or contemporary in style, tree houses make the most of space. Climb into this trove of tree houses and enjoy a new perspective on the world.”
