AG-- saw this and thought of you.

AIA's 2014 top ten green buildings in the US:

An interesting list of buildings that includes some lesser-publicized green-building projects, such as a homeless shelter, a treehouse, and even a Net-Zero energy courthouse.

Thanks. I love the airy, open space feel of the structures.  ;D

But that Tree house! Chewbacca would go nuts over it! I love it!

I like it too, but am pretty sure the climbing would be too much for a guy with one knee.

One knee is a bummer.  :( However, you could make your way up and down with a solar powered elevator. The one below works on vacuum and installs in a jiffy (so they say...).


No need to miss out on that GREAT VIEW!
