In the five years since the release of the international publishing success Treehouses of the World, the community of treehouse builders has grown considerably and many more - and more intriguingly innovative - treehouses have been built around the world, from North America to Asia and many points in-between. As world-changing and sustainable living issues become the most important challenges facing the post-millennial age, the positive power, ecological consciousness and good will that a simple treehouse represents couldn't come at a better time. Picking up where Treehouses of the World leaves off, New Treehouses of the World continues the journal-style travelogue of the world's leading treehouse designer and builder, Pete Nelson. From his fateful year-long sabbatical in Spain, where he decided to make treehouses his sole enterprise, to the founding of Treehouse Point near Seattle, Nelson documents the beginnings of this new journey alongside a bountifully illustrated record of his travels, discoveries and epiphanies.
Pete Nelson is an architect and general contractor who is at the forefront of treehouse revival and sustainable architecture. He has written several books, including Abrams' Treehouses of the World, and runs the world's leading treehouse building company, TreeHouse Workshop, in Seattle.
