I just saw this in FaceBook this morning. The artist made one for her daughter because she didn't want her daughter playing in plastic, then started receiving requests to make more.

It was this article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/27/garden/a-hand-woven-retort-to-the-plastic-playhouse.html?_r=0.



And this is the gal's website: http://cheeriup.com/.

Kinda cool.

That's the biggest beehive I've ever seen!

Glad you enjoyed it! I think it might be fairly easy to grow coppiced saplings for making and selling these lovely things.

I think you're right. I just trimmed back the growth on my urban "fedge" - I could have been half way to one of these playhouses with all those whippy shoots! Next time for sure.
