Good things come to those who wait – particularly in a work of uniquely detailed and highly curved architecture. Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover. The wood and metal detailing is incredible in its variety and customization – each piece designed to fit a particular form and function.

Two things: First, considering the touchscreen maps at my local shopping centres ae almost always down or only half work, and smeared with public finger goop, the maintenance factor would be huge in this kind of world. They'd always need constant repairs, cleaning, and upgrading.

Tree House Plans - How to Build a Backyard Tree House - Popular Mechanics A chain hoist helped raise a heavy pile of green oak, barn siding and pine flooring up into this formerly unoccupied Kentucky coffee tree. It's a common-sense rule of treehouse construction: Make it lightweight. So I felt some stirrings of anxiety when the stocky, bearded sawmill owner pulled up to the house with a flatbed trailer stacked with oak timbers. Full of water, densely grained and smelling like bourbon, the rough-cut framing lumber I’d ordered spanned 18 feet and looked like bridge supports. As we offloaded the first 2 x 8, each of us taking an end in hand, I smiled doggedly to mask the strain I felt. He peered over the garden fence past the lilac bushes, and politely asked, “What kind of treehouse are you building?”
After hiking the trail up the Bavarian Alps foothills from the small town of Hohenschwangau (nearby to Füssen) I discovered a real Cinderella Castle- the magical, Neuschwanstein Castle. Bavarian King Ludwig II dreamed up this castle in 1868. King Ludwig was a long-time admirer of the 19th century German composer, Richard Wagner (pronounced Vagner) and much of the castle was inspired by his operas including my personal favorite, Tristan and Isolde. Walking around the castle without a tour guide is prohibited. Neuschwanstein- The Real Cinderella Castle in Bavaria Germany & ...
