tropical bamboo architecture: treehouse vacation rental

This tropical treehouse in Puerto Rico (otherwise known as the 'Solar Hooch') uses simple ecological bamboo construction methods resting the living space on stilts. Bamboo, the most sustainable building material (takes five years to mature for harvesting compared to a couple of decades for trees), has so many applications both rustic and modern. More about bamboo in construction can be found on a terrific site called modern bamboo architecture.
