that's really cool.
Roald Gundersen, an architect, and his life and business partner, Amelia Baxter, 31, with their two children, 3-year-old Estella and 9-month-old Cameron.
Mr. Gundersen, who founded Gundersen Design in 1991 and built his first house in the forest 10 miles east of the Mississippi River and 150 miles northwest of Madison two years later, has made a career of working with trees.
Mr. Gundersen built his home and greenhouse using whole trees for structure and support, after first pruning and bending them.
After finishing the A-frame, Mr. Gundersen built a 100-by-20-foot solar greenhouse next door with thick straw-bale walls on three sides, banked into the north slope.
The small house attached to the greenhouse was constructed out of elm trees peeled of their bark.

I like it a lot provided it's in the right setting. Aside: A family member of mine met this architect recently and was impressed.

Now all I have to do is try and scheme on how to get rid of that wife and kids, and get my ass living in their with this guy instead!
It does need some more landscaping to blend it into it's forest setting(about he only place it would work-in a woods, on a wooded cliffedge, beside a pond in the woods, on a wooded hillside, etc) ..anyway I could do the landscaping.
*jealous of that bitch and her kids... *
OMG I love it! I would live there in a heartbeat! And that greenhouse! Holy wow!
Act normal and the crowd will accept you. Act deranged and they will make you their leader
