Dreams can come true! I bought this book to fuel the dreams I share with my wife of building our dream house on family property. We have a considerable amount of wooded land to work with, so a treehouse could be a possibility! Since finishing Your Cabin in the Woods, we are inspired to build a small structure that blends into the environment. I love books like this that inspire you with well-written text and powerful images. There are some awesome treehouses around the world and* in the United States! This new book by Pete Nelson is my first but I think it may be his best - since it's not just an inspiration book. In section two he covers the design process - selecting your location, designing the treehouse, and tips for the super-fun permitting process.
