A Tree House

Check out this tree house! After graduating from the Pratt Institute, Alexandra Meyn was unable to find a job or an internship (I can relate) so she decided she was going to create her own. She built and designed her very own tree house around an old mulberry in the back of her home in Brooklyn, NY.
''Working with a $400 budget, Ms. Meyn learned to source materials on the cheap, finding doors in the trash and buying the floorboards, paint and other items at Build It Green, a nonprofit organization in Queens that sells inexpensive reclaimed supplies.''

Did you ever have a tree house of your own? Would you build one now? I'd love to hear your thoughts. 

ps. You can read Ms. Meyn's full story here.
