From Concept to Reality

Success.......we have walls......actual walls.  How quickly a space can change...... even the environment around the building has changed.  The juxtaposition from soft nature of organic trees and earth to hard structured human form has a mixture of emotions that flood my mind.  At first glance my heart skips a beat realizing that my dreams have come true and I'm looking at a concrete idea that I developed.  All these insecurities rattle thru your thoughts....."are the windows to big"......."is the proportion off on the right"........"it looks so huge".....but really it doesn't matter, it can't be changed now so your better off taking it all in and enjoying every damn minute of it.  I have to tell you, there is nothing better then looking out these "wonderfully" huge windows and seeing the breathtaking view of wooded trees and water in the distance.  I called this dwelling the "Treehouse" because it's placed within a large grouping of older growth trees, but I had expected that some of that idea would be lost with the walls closing up the space.  To my surprise...... you feel like your suspended high on a platform and that the only thing missing is the small rope bridge crossing to the nearby tree.  WONDERFUL!!!!
