    oh no, i think it's fine on its own, mine were really all kind of houses, it started out as the beautiful houses thread and then i split them because i'm a snob and didn't want my houses to be buried under all those fancy homes of wealthy people:p

    wait, i'll find it for you i just thought you might like it, too..., hang on..

    oh yes, indeed. hah, it's good to be here again but i feel like a grandma with a walking stick^_^

    i find the idea of tree houses especially appealing, i suppose they appeal not only to my inner child - as almost everything does - but to my inner hippie child {as almost everything does}:p

    Such glee! Could we post pictures of unusual houses on this thread, not just playhouses? I love unusual homes, partly for the fairytale aspect, but also because they tend to embody a resourceful and respectful philosophy towards nature and society. Try googling 'unusual houses', it's heaven.

    www.uforarea.com Ha! I don't know if this is real, but it shows that you don't have to tear down trees to build a home, you can work with what is on the earth.

    www.xnepali.com This is such a defiant sentiment, a colorful paintjob of a stuffy apartment building. It reminds me of poor, run-down neighborhoods, where some people always clean their streets, paint their houses cheery colors, keep flowers and plants on their balconies and windowsills.

    www.all-about-houseboats.com Amsterdam is beyond magical. Yes, yes, people really live in these, though I'm told the reality of living in a houseboat is less fun than the fantasy. Screw it, I want to live in a houseboat!!

    Well..we could just rename this thread.. 'Houses that appeal to your Inner Child' ? That's more encompassing..

    I lived on a houseboat for ½ a year on Nagin Lake in Srinagar (Kashmir, India) truely the most beautiful place on earth.. no matter on what side of the lake you were living you had the Himalayas as a backdrop.. :heart:

    Hanne, you could have mentioned that biographical tidbit with some kind of disclaimer or warning. Thanks a lot, I'm disoriented and foaming at the mouth with jealousy right now. Do you have any pictures? If you do, kindly remember the disclaimer thing...

    I think the "Inner Child" title is befitting, definitely. I'm sad to see that one of my pictures didn't work, but it's happened to me before, so I'll wait till tomorrow to see if it appears on my screen.

    lol

    Pictures ..my parents have most of them.. has I was only 10 at the time and none of them are stored on my laptop just in my head..
    anyways.. it's not an 'inner child' place anymore :cry: too much political unrest among the locals (and decapitated western mountain climbers) killed the tourist industry which meant at the houseboats were left to rot without the tourist money coming in..the population to day is probably 1/10 of what it was when I was there..

    Back on topic.. I see all of the pictures - no red X's for me..

    What an interesting childhood you must have had! I have such wanderlust, I cannot tell you. I am aware of the political turmoil in that region, and tragically, there many awe-inspiring regions in the world that have been compromised by war and poverty. I guess it's all the more reason to cherish the time you spent there, even as a child, where much of our memory is hazy and half-formed.

    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?! :heart:
    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. -_-
