    I quite like the idea, but can't work out the benefits and disadvantages!

  2. I've often considered doing this. It just appeals to me :). Toilet facilities would be the biggest problem, IMO.

    There was a bloke I recall who used to live up in the trees in Central Park in New York. He was up there for ages before they realised :thumbsup:

    The longer you live there, the less living space you have.

    Too much shade in the summer.

    Too exposed in the winter.

    Fire hazard.

    Bird noise.

    Build a brick house, it worked for one of the three little pigs.

    You could cut an hole in the floor . Handy as a 'cold caller' deterrent too, if you position it right.

  6. Very thoughtful for scavengers and those seeking fuel...provided the weather is suitable for drying purposes.
