I'm not sure how cool I am with a house that could eat me. I wouldn't mind a treehouse though

am i missing something? isn't the tree house susceptible to a lot of things, mostly environmental. also how do you repair it? wait for parts to grow back? how do you properly insulate it? Either i missed something or this is the worst idea ever.

Maybe by that time, organic would be the new tech. We'd be all over it to the point that any repairs are repaired instantly like a chea pet. I think this is a brilliant idea, both meat and tree, but it would take years of scientific research, funding, and open mindedness to even follow through with such an idea.

Some issues with this:
-Poorly insulated
-Not very clean
-Susceptible to many different types of bugs/insects
-Natural disasters could easily destroy them
-Difficult to repair

You mean just like normal houses?


All of the other things you mentioned are definitely good points though.

A regular house has a stable foundation made out of brick or concrete. They make homes way more stable than those would. I've seen storms take out trees very easily.

That's an interesting idea.

I preferred the Bud light house in that one beer commercial though.

What about electricity? What about a drought? What about winter? This seems like an idea that would appeal to hardcore environmentalists, but it would never work.

tolkien came up with the idea of tree houses how many years ago?

Some issues with this:

-Poorly insulated: Do you know that for fact?

-Not very clean: Raised floorboards, use a tree species that sheds little bark.

-Susceptible to many different types of bugs/insects: Insecticide

-Natural disasters could easily destroy them: Just like normal houses? (yea I know it's been said) And you appear to be discounting the roots factor presuming they go deep enough you'd have a HUGE root system underground and a reasonably flexible structure above. I meant his isn't one tree it's a ****ing network of trees.

-Difficult to repair: It's already been said they may develop a way to speed the plants regeneration otherwise patch from the inside it till it grows over.

Oh and as far as electricity is concerned it wouldn't be all THAT hard to wire after the fact.

Yeah, I went back to find his name. Plus, I just think this tree house thing is a shit idea and it reminds me of something from a third world country. I will find any excuse possible to say the idea sucks.

this SOUNDS awesome, but is ultimately just hippy bullshit. how do you insulate it? how do you keep out the elements? what happens when it rains? what happens if there's a ****ing FIRE. I was under the impression that forest fires were already a pretty huge concern. I live in Canada, I know for a fact that plants do not particularly like -40 celsius temperatures. they tend to... die, unless they're evergreens. So will we not just have houses in the winter or what?


EDIT: apparently there was a meat one? I stopped watching too early. That's even worse of an idea. Assuming it's dead, it will rot. Assuming it's alive, first of all: ew, secondly, it will eventually die... and rot.

would you just kind of be living in some weird elaborate tree cage? I'm sure a few people wouldnt mind, but I see too many problems (bugs! living things that like to eat away at trees! and make babies in them!) for the whole idea to really make any $$$ besides from bored rich people.

I feel like it would be difficult, and there's a fair chance that it's impossible, but I still want to see it implemented.

I dont think too many people fancy in living in a meat house anyways

but there apparantly are no real animals used for it, which destroys my first thought of it being some sort of nightmarish b-horror sort of thing, dripping with blood everywhere and such (how could you get to sleep living with pulsating walls/ ceilings/ floors?)

I think I would rather build a house from adobe. I've seen some interesting and attractive homes that are mostly made from adobe that aren't the basic pueblo style.

It also isn't alive and susceptible to the unfortunate "mortality" of living things.
