Who hasn’t wanted to live in a tree house? Only simpletons want to live on the ground. House Crazy Sarah has not had the opportunity to dwell in a tree house (yet) but she loves trees and she loves houses, so it is inevitable my friends.

Look at some of these funky houses with trees / trees with houses that are floating around on the interwebs…

This one pictured above was once an elaborate tree house built for some little princess. But princesses grow up and move away.  🙁

House Crazy Sarah is not sure what or where this one is (above). Someone sent her the photo on Facebook. But doesn’t it make your skin crawl?

Below… it’s hard to determine if the trees are growing through the house, or just on the house.

Either way, it’s one of them ‘living roofs’.

The house below looks as though it was actually built around the tree(s).

What happens when the tree grows?

The home below was designed to have a sort of tree-trarium:

Tree calisthenics. How cool!

The homeowner (below) lost a large tree in her yard, but she kept the stump and had it turned into a little free library. So now it’s a little tree library!

House Crazy Sarah concludes with the following words of wisdom:

Trees are always a relief after people.
