Why building a treehouse?


Since I was a little boy I liked to climb into the heights and build shelters close to the stars. Such a desire has withstand the passing of time, while yet, acquiring a different meaning. It has a become a sort of rebellion against a society that limits imagination to consumption, and who blindly looks away at the enormous anti-production (garbage, waste, pollution, etc) of the capitalist system. Hence, inspired by the work in appropriate technologies of Demotech, I just wanted to collect what is considered waste (old bike tires, car tubes, electricity cables, etc) in order to creatively recycle and combine them with the natural (the tree and bamboo that grow in my garden). In such a way I managed to build a tree-friendly and zero-cost platform with a roof, which serves for reading, sleeping and chilling.
