A tree house.
A free house.
A secret you and me house.
A high up in the leafy branches.
A happy as can be house.
A street house.
A neat house.
A be sure to wipe your feet house,
is not the kind of house for me.
Let's go and live in a treehouse.

LOOK! WANT ONE OF THESE? - Presenting a structure appropriately dubbed, "EINSTEIN'S CASTLE™" after the joyous little garden house /sanctuary that Albert Einstein rented outside Spandau city, to get away from his busy home and study and work in peace and quiet, or spend time with his children.. references 1 - 2 - 3 (see early design sketch at right)

Architects (and treehouse builders and dwellers) have long intuited that the places we inhabit can affect our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Now behavioral scientists are giving their hunches an empirical basis. Scientists are unearthing tantalizing clues about how to design spaces that promote creativity, keep students focused and alert, and lead to relaxation and social intimacy, (giving more credence to the Fine Treehouse Building Code of Intelligent Building quidelines.) In the 1950s prizewinning biologist and doctor Jonas Salk was working on a cure for polio in a dark basement laboratory in Pittsburgh. Progress was slow, so to clear his head, Salk traveled to Assisi, Italy, where he spent time in a 13th-century monastery, ambling amid its columns and cloistered courtyards. Suddenly, Salk found himself awash in new insights, including the one that would lead to his successful polio vaccine. Salk was convinced he had drawn his inspiration from the contemplative setting. He came to believe so strongly in architecture’s ability to influence the mind that he teamed up with renowned architect Louis Kahn to build the Salk Institute in La Jolla, Calif., as a scientific facility that would stimulate breakthroughs and encourage creativity. ( Treehouses can do the same for your spirit.)
