    For those of you who don’t know how amazing my husband it, here is a glimpse. He has almost single-handedly remodeled our house, room by room, over the last 7 years. We still have a few more projects in the house, but he was persuaded to work outside this time on a treehouse for our kids. I always wanted a treehouse as I was growing up and never got the chance to have one, so when he told our kids last year that he would build one for them, I made him deliver on that promise!

    It took him a bit longer than expected because he is a perfectionist and a beautiful designer, so it evolved as he built it. But, the end result was definitely worth it. The kids are thrilled and I am so proud of him.

    I documented the process with my iphone, but took some final photos with my good camera, both at night and daytime. Enjoy!

    It’s well known that Sequoia’s are some of the largest and most impressive trees on earth. Their size is legendary, and some can live to be thousands of years old. In a strange concept that borders on science fiction, Evolo talks about merging man with nature, with their Giant Sequoia Skyscraper Concept. Imagine a man-made structure carefully built inside of a failing sequoia, a tree that is dying either to age or pests or fire damage. The skyscraper-like form factor would allow for many stories of habitability above ground, as well as below, utilizing an underground built space as well. The idea is strange and fascinating, a concept that investigates our relationship to nature, our ability to harness it, but also to potentially prolong it’s life.
