Treehouses, Thursday at 7:30

An important note from Eli Hungerford:

Pete Nelson will be on campus Thursday to talk about his experiences with sustainable and small structure construction and tree houses. Pete owns Treehouse Workshop and Nelson Treehouse and Supply, both based right outside of Seattle. Through these companies he runs workshops to teach people how to safely build their own treehouses and designs and builds treehouses for clients. His talk will cover issues of small living spaces and how this can be a problem with building codes and regulations and how these laws affect building in trees in general. It will also include some design aspects and sustainability considerations such as choosing an appropriate site, salvaged building materials and the impact of the place on the structure and vice versa.

The talk will take place at 7:30 pm on Thursday, May 31st in the Cinema in the Warch Campus Center.
