    Here my thoughts and brain storming on housing, and general issues of life including political issues:

    Here a few more approaches of light weight housing, which qualify one or more points:
    • economical / low cost (avoiding mortgage)
    • easy to built (do it yourself)
    • ecological (sustainable materials)

    With only 3.2m diameter the spheres are quite small to live in I would say - yet, composed or located within the trees they seem almost to belong there as they naturally seem to blend into - a beautiful approach.

    I was wondering how the shelter is actually attached to the tree without damaging them - also, if they grow with different pace, whether the living space tilts slowly - therefore an non-intrusive yet stable and adjustable anchor system is required.

    The required ground space is perhaps zero square feet or square meter . . ?!

    Some of the examples are very small, a bit too small for my taste for 1-2 persons. I lived in a 6.4m diameter yurt which made 32m2 sufficient for a kitchen, sleeping space, a desk, a stove and a section to cook.
