Amazing Treehouses From Around The World
Roderick Romero is known for building treehouses for stars like Sting and Val Kilmer, but its his desire to live a more minimalist, ahimsa-focused life that first inspired him to create his treetop masterpieces. His Lantern House is situated among three eucalyptus trees in Santa Monica, Calif., and 99 percent of it was built with salvaged lumber including the stained glass, which he recovered from an old movie set. I cant imagine building in the Trees while knowing that the materials I use could be contributing to a clearcut somewhere else on the planet, Romero says.
