Plant-e Electricity Re-defines Green!

Plant-e electricity being harvested from plants

  We spend a lot of time blogging about treehouses, which is fun and awesome.  This time, though, I want to take a moment to talk about the power of nature, which gives us trees to build houses in. I came across this very interesting article on page 9 of the February edition of The New Agora […]

Treehouses for non-builders

Do you want a treehouse but don’t want to have to build one?  A lack of time, energy, confidence or skills, are among the biggest barriers to making your own treehouse.  And that’s okay — treehouse building isn’t for everyone.

A Hidden Treehouse

A Hidden Treehouse in Burnaby

  I want to share a story about a hidden treehouse I found in the woods one day. I’m always on the lookout for treehouses in my neighbourhood.

A Treehouse Post-Halloween Movie!

  Treehouse, the horror movie, is due to be released on November 16th…curiously 16 days after Halloween, in what must be one of the most poorly-planned release dates in recent history. Anyway, it’s about treehouses, which is right cool.  Its pre-release rating (something I don’t quite understand…how can it have a rating if it hasn’t […]

Bosco Verticale Redefines Treehouse Living

Bosco Verticale redefines treehouse living

  Bosco Verticale, which translates from Italian as “the vertical forest”, is a whole new concept in living with nature. Not everyone has the luxury of access to wilderness in which to commune with nature.  In increasingly populated urban centres, many are deeply hemmed in by city with the nearest natural areas being a few […]

Treehouses Built by Kids

What do you think about treehouses built by kids?  Think about it…we all know that kids of all ages love treehouses.  Typically, though, parents build them for rather than with their kids.  Well here’s an awesome site I came across called Built By Kids, which cultivates family bonds by involving children in DIY projects — […]

Treehouse Food Gardening

Say it with me now: Treehouse food gardening!  You’ve probably never heard them in that combination, but don’t those 3 words sound great together? Treehouses and food gardening both represent a sense of self-sufficiency and commune with nature. So why not do them both? If your treehouse is snuggled inside the tree’s canopy, the first […]

What’s cooler than treehouses?  Secret treehouses, of course!  Much of a treehouse’s appeal involves communing with nature, sharing some special bond away from the madding crowd.  When living in urban centres, this can be very hard to accomplish without a little secrecy. Secret treehouses are also a powerful way to return to that feeling of […]
