Cool Photos: Buildings Made from Trees

A friend forwarded me this link of Whole Tree Architecture creations and I wanted to share!

How cool is this?  Roald Gunderson creates buildings from whole trees!  From the site: “According to the Forest Products Laboratory, a whole, unmilled tree can support 50 percent more weight than the largest piece of lumber milled from the same tree.”

  1. Wow. That is so amazing and what’s more, it’s so right it’s brilliant. Who wouldn’t want to live with trees all year round?
