Our Library : Treehouses of the World

Posted by

More from our library...We stock our shelves with plenty of craft books and visual reference books for inspiration, but these days I'm especially enamored with Pete Nelson and Radek Kurzaj's book Treehouses of the World.  The treehouses featured exhibit a magical brand of craftiness and ingenuity, though the scale of these craft projects are a bit grander than our typical projects.

Rather than using glass panes,  the windows were made of empty rum bottles filled with colored water...a pretty crafty solution for a place with loads of wind and rum bottles.
