World’s Tallest Tree House https://goodshomedesign.com/worlds-tallest-tree-house/ https://goodshomedesign.com/worlds-tallest-tree-house/#comments Sat, 22 Apr 2017 17:47:22 +0000 http://goodshomedesign.com/?p=40625

The next piece of home design is truly mind-blowing. When you first mention a tree-house to someone, they expect you present a small structure not a four-level high jaw-dropping structure. The awesome tree-house featured here took almost 11 years to complete. Located in Tennessee, US, it is supported by 6 oak trees and a quarter of a million nails were supposedly used to build it. The owner, Horace Burgess, managed to create 3,000 square meters of living space. Even going through all the rooms of the gargantuan tree-house is an adventure in itself. But you won’t get bored in this tree-house quickly. It has an incredible swing, a basketball hoop, and it also features a church bell, weighing almost half a ton! The impressive structure is quite dangerous because there are concerns it can catch very easily on fire, and being so large, it could have disastrous effects. This treehouse is incredible!

Horace, who lived in the 10-story wooden house, said he begun to build in 1993 after he received a vision from God, who said he would never run out of materials if he built it.
The enormous tree house is a whopping 10,000 square feet but only cost Horace $12,000 thanks to his thrifty use of recycled materials.

The tree house in Crossville Tennessee, the tallest in the world and took 11 years for builder Horace Burgess to finish

Hard work: The entire house took more than 268,000 nails to build – and a lot of elbow grease

Childhood Dream Come True: A Treehouse, Skate Bowl And A Wood Fired Soaking Tub https://goodshomedesign.com/childhood-dream-come-true-a-treehouse-skate-bowl-and-a-wood-fired-soaking-tub/ https://goodshomedesign.com/childhood-dream-come-true-a-treehouse-skate-bowl-and-a-wood-fired-soaking-tub/#respond Fri, 26 Feb 2016 14:03:11 +0000 http://goodshomedesign.com/?p=34101 the-cinder-cone_architecture-1

You might think a tree-house is the child dream you never accomplished. With all your strength, savings, that dream can become reality, fast!  The self-built tree-house we’re featuring in the pictures is amazing. In the Spring of 2014 a small group of close friends broke ground on a building project in Skamania County, Washington in the Columbia River Gorge. The building processed is all detailed in a book you can get. But as you can see from the images, the process of raising the structure in a superb environment will go just fine. The Cinder Cone is Foster Huntington’s short film that documents this year-long process of building his dream home with this community of tight knit friends.

Even though a tree-house might evoke feelings of playtime and adventure, there are people who actually live, day by day, in such a structure, high up into the trees. The project you see in the photos is an actual livable home in the French Alps. Imagine yourself lounging in a warm place like this after a nice walk in the snowy woods. Maybe you’ve collected some wood for the fire or maybe you foraged or hunted for something to eat, the well-equipped tree-house offers a cozy ambient for you. The interior design is simple but you could change it in order to fit your personality. Designers Patrice and Hugo Bernard made sure the small home in the trees has everything you might want in a regular house. The kitchen has all facilities and the bedroom holds a large bed in which you can easily fall asleep. Take a look over the photos to get a better idea of what it means to actually live in a tree-house.

Unusual And Comfortable Treehouse – A Nest For The Whole Family https://goodshomedesign.com/unusual-and-comfortable-treehouse-a-nest-for-the-whole-family/ https://goodshomedesign.com/unusual-and-comfortable-treehouse-a-nest-for-the-whole-family/#respond Wed, 08 Oct 2014 16:17:02 +0000 http://goodshomedesign.com/?p=21187 Tree-houses

Tree-houses have gone a long way from a children’s play area to a regular day-to-day place for living. You can find a lot of great examples of modern tree-houses on the internet nowadays. The architecture is truly inspiring and can make you, as an adult, want to move in a tree-house pretty soon. The Treehouse Djuren, located in Gross Ippener in Northern Germany, has the signature of the popular design firm, Baumraum. The structure is placed on 4 strong pillars lodged into a sturdy cement base. And definitely worth noticing, even though it is a tree-house, the home is actually built near the tree, while the stairs are on it. The interiors are very lovely and will make the ambience and all of your time spent there a lot more comfortable. Browse through all of the photos and change your opinion of tree-houses. Maybe even consider moving in to such a beautiful structure.
