I was thisclose to renting an apartment with a roof like that, only it was balconied to protect my inner child. And to protect the outer me after drinking. It also had an amazing view, but the landlord doubled (yes, doubled) the rent at the last moment. My inner child was not happy.

I'm still stuck on the water theme. Captain Nemo's dream house:

such a pretty thread, Hanne!. and you managed to bring Estella back for real, what more can one ask for?!
I love the tree house from spielart laucha site, very twisted in all senses, a little Burton-esque..
I'll try to find something to contribute here.. I loved tree houses as a kid, we tried to get things to work around a peach tree but never succeeded!, an eucalyptus is perfect for these things.

wow that painted apartment is breathtaking! It also gives the appearance of a cobbled together building, as opposed to one very normal looking one.

Treehouses are lovely. My dad built me one as a child (my dad is pretty awesome - he also built me a mini model airplane that I could sit in and peddle around in. Though when I got it I apparently complained that it didn't have any tie downs on it like a real airplane ). Anyway, he built it up in a tree, with a little window and a working door. It sat on a platform and you could climb a ladder up to it. But my dad also attached an apparatus to it, so there was also a ladder that was placed horizontally (ie like monkey bars) or you could take a rope down.

A house to appeal to your inner architecturally and design oriented child

A playhouse that is a true miniature copy of Arne Jacobsen's 1928 house - scale 1:16

^That's such a cool idea. Wouldn't it be great if more architects, interior, and landscape designers jumped on the miniature bandwagon, like those sportscar minis? We could have little dollhouses of amazing buildings, gardens, and furniture. I know they wouldn't be "real" and utilitarian, but in some ways, you could at least appreciate their craftsmanship more. Come to think of it, I wish fashion designers would do that too, it's the only way I'll ever come close to looking at all the layers of an haute couture piece. Le sigh...

I like the topsy-turviness of this room, even though it's done on purpose for the photograph. It reminds me of those funhouses at amusement parks, where the mirrors and jagged floors make you look and feel off-kilter. Not practical overall for day-to-day life, but I believe there are simple ways to add a touch of magic to your home.

Add a few more windows, and a manageable floor, and we're good to go.

My dad built one too. It mirrored the design of our house. I loved it, but sadly it had to be taken down to make way for a pool.
My grandpa who also had the same skill for building things as my dad. Made me a rocking horse, a big dolls house that could fit barbies(complete with a garage to fit my barbie corvette & a stable), a child sized Bugatti which had a motor in it but unsurprisingly 5 yr old me was NOT allowed to use the motor.

i think i've seen that circle wooden house on TV
it opens up..like it gets sliced open..has stairs, little spaces to sit on or tables, seemed to have more windows
steel sink and kitchen surfaces on the inside..
if i remember correctly it also functions as a boat-house

supposed to be completely environmentally-friendly

wow, these tree houses are really something!

Hanne, here's to you some relatively recent pictures of the Srinagar house boats, i was there in 2007. They are surprisingly big and have fun names like Ritz or Deluxe!
