The Blue Cone, which is actually painted red, utilizes traditional wood construction techniques with a facade of split birch and rests on three supports in the trees. The Bird’s Nest, which is aptly named, is a circular room built high on stilts that is accessed via a retractable staircase. The Cabin is another prefabricated structure built on a steep slope accessed via a footbridge that has beautiful views of the valley of the Lule River below.

    it’s when there is an L shaped CLEAR glass window — one stretch of window continuing around the corne — with a continuous inside outside sill and no visible, vertical support crossing the glass — thats when birds get slammed — here, they will likely see things better and especially if the feeder or any other artifacts of birdyville birdyness are in the right place(s) — after all, when you’re seeing things and find you are, and you obviously have, maybe your heart should be in the right place

    enjoy yer trip, see you next fall

    I htink this tree house sticks out like a sore thumb. Although I still like it. I wouldn’t personally visit this tree house myself though. But if I wanted to buy a gift for someone in a romantic setting I’d probably go for a more natural looking tree house such as this one….

    Looks beautiful!

    Birds will be killed hitting into these monstrosities.

    A better device for killing the birds of the forest has yet to be invented – good work visionaries! Does the cost of room and board include the morning feathered corpse walk to admire how this piece of industrial garbage has \”blended into the environment\”?

  16. jstrawks July 18, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    How many birds does this thing kill per hour?

  17. tolmatcd July 16, 2010 at 3:19 pm

    It may be difficult to clean the mirrors but reflections counter the maintenance problems. This design is in the positive when weighing it\’s pros and cons. The \”cons\” that worry me is birds flying into it and breaking their necks.

    Must be tough keeping all of those mirror walls see through clean!
