    Is the rooftop made of plexci-glass or acrylic and does it withstand winds and snow? Have you given any thought to solar panels on the roof?

      Its looks to me to be a corrugated Polycarbonate like Suntuf. Its made for roofing.

    Beautiful. No heat retention, but beautiful.

    As just a summer “house” this is perfect! What a great setting, and the glass flooring is fun! I could handle this as my summer home! Thank goodness for the trees though with that roof!

    Very cool and colorful! Although as much as I love trees, they are messy to live under and while the clear roof looks beautiful now being new, soon it will be covered in debris and a bitch to clean.

    would’t it be very echoey?

    I liked the sheers around the bed since I’m sure bugs are a problem but I would also need dark curtains so I’m not forced up at sunrise. It’s a lovely summer place!

    How enchanting! When I was a little girl. there was a small grove of young trees near my house. Sunlight, sifted through the leaves, landed on the ground – and on me – in dappled gold and green, shimmering when breezes whispered through the branches. This house brings me right back there. You have created something quite magical. Thank you for sharing the photos.
