This impressive oak and wattle & daub house and kitchen gardens is Bayleaf Farm, an early Tudor Wealden House from Chiddingstone, Kent, England. More, including video, at www.naturalhomes.org/bayleaf-farm.htm
The design for this treehouse was inspired by a chrysalis. The walkway is built using redwood and the fins and slats are built from sustainably grown pine and poplar. The structure uses glulam (glued laminated timber) which is used as a replacement for steel.
