A wooden house with a staircase from the architect Jeff de Ruyter
A house on a tree with a ladder is a kind of financial security. Some citizens build them to save on mortgages, others turn them into a suburban residence for recreation or renting.
For Jeff de Ruyter his author's project became a symbol of stable existence, which cost him about $ 45,000. There is an attic for a bedroom, a small sitting area, a kitchen and a bio-toilet. For construction, the architect used both new and already used building and finishing materials. Basically it is natural wood of different types, which creates in this tiny living corner a unique light aura.
For heating, Jeff uses one electric plinth, for lighting - the minimum number of bulbs, placed only in those places where this is really necessary. By the way, his electricity is supplied by kind neighbors, to whom he pays only $ 20 a month.
The only negative is the absence of a shower. But the owner is not at all embarrassed by this circumstance, because not far from his habitation there is a convenient harbor where he can bathe when he wishes.
Modest dimensions did not prevent the installation of large windows for admiring nature
In the small bedroom there is a spacious bed, decorated with retro textile
And could you live in such a house?
