Architect David Sellers designed a green tree house inspired by nature and built in Vermont from local trees and stone.

Building the green Tree House, the prospective homeowner did give Sellers a few important guiding principles: He asked that the home reflect the Japanese architectural traditions he'd come to love through visits to his daughter-in-law's homeland — simple, natural materials and a connection to the surrounding environment — and he wanted trees to be in the forefront of the design.
