Photo of artist Rik Pierce behind one hell of a wonderful Treehouse creation.
I just found friend Ulla's (http://ullam.typepad.com/ullabenulla/2006/08/fantasy_doll_ho.html#comment-20978254) post today about amazing dollhouse artist, Rik Pierce (http://www.frogmorton.com/) who makes the most incredible dollhouses I've seen. Dollhouses are one thing, but these are particularly germane to me right now because of how spot on they are for Rana's Halfland cottage creation. And because this man's background includes cartography and life-size, vintage architectural restoration (read: math) his angles dangle properly and his dormer intersects his eyebrows. The photos at his webpages are frustratingly blurry and poor (Ulla grabbed the best, I'd recommend looking there) but the heavy wooden beams of his various cottage ceiling interiors and the integration of house and tree are just about EXACTLY how I'd like mine to end up.
