Whole Tree Houses = giddy with awesome-ness

This article in the NY Times about an architect, Roald Gundersen, makes me giddy because it's such a super-eco-friendly-artful-happy idea! Why would you not want to live in a house like this? He built his first house with $15,000 (for plumbing, paid labor, etc.) and uses whole trees instead of treated/cut lumber. The end result is nothing shy of stunning. It's like living in a modern forest house.

This is just one more reason why I wish so badly I could build my own house-- if only I could apprentice with Dan in Huntsville and had a bit of money to do it.

(Make sure to check out the NY Times slideshow!)
