In other tree house news:
Interior designer Lynne Knowlton and her husband built a charming retreat in the trees on their property in Ontario, Canada.
Most of the materials they used are reclaimed, including the wood, which came from a friend’s barn destroyed by a tornado, and the doors and windows, reused from old homes and a church. A slide — yeah, a slide! — came from a playground. The rusty spindles on the porch and stairway were found at a yard sale. Even the kitchen sink’s a reused item (from a friend).
Hop over to Lynne’s Design the Life You Want to Live blog to see other photos here and here. Also check out photos of her house here (that’s her day-to-day house); clearly, she loves decorating with twigs, driftwood, and other natural materials that you’ve seen us feature repeatedly on Unconsumption. What’s not to like about all this?!
