Treehouse in Vermont

I’m discovering all kinds of photos as I look through (just) my digital archives — some 90,000 photos. Buildings that never got published. I’m going to do more regular blog posts for a while. Fun! Discovering hidden gems.

This is a wheelchair-accessible treehouse for students at the Yestermorrow Design-Build School in the Green Mountains, Vermont, designed that by rarity — a good architect — John Connell. I shot it in a visit to Dave Sellers, John and other Vermonter builders in Warren, Vermont, in 2005.

I got a ton of great photos in just a few days there. More to come.

Check out the timber framing and other courses at yestermorrow.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
