Tropical Treehouse has been cultivating and using bamboo for over 20 years. Sequestered CO2? Well, ....tons!
this conceptual design incorporates a removable fabric roof. In the event of an imminent hurricane, the roof is removed, alleviating the windage of such a large surface. The remaining structure present a minimal profile and is thus more resistant to the strong winds----conceptually. Hooch 2.0
The sunset Hooch-still stands after bei flattered by Maria's winds approaching 200mph. Lost some walls, the cupola, but still stands proud. It was battered, twisted, stretched, bent, shaken and stirred, but the cables to nearby trees held. For a structure with a floating foundation smaller than a back porch, and a height of 26', that is amazing. Just amazing!
Sam is on the front lines of this Herculean effort. A heartfelt thank you to friends near and far. Thanks!
