This is the most amazing, magical, intricate work of art. My husband and I created this house in 1995 when we lived in Washington state. We always have loved going for walks in the mountains and by the sea and have collected so many incredible materials in nature over the years. We've always wanted to build our own very different, unique house (to actually live in) so I think we put many of our dreams and ideas into this house (the first fairy house we made). This house is 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It has 14 rooms (all completely furnished with little chairs, beds, tables, etc., dishes, books, sculptures, paintings, brooms, shoes, etc., also made from nature). We have used everything in nature you can imagine.....driftwood, branches, roots, vines, twigs, leaves, moss, flowers, stones, shells, seaweed, kelp, leaf skeleton, wild grasses, herbs, pods, the list goes on. We gathered nearly all of the materials we've used in the house as well. It took us 6 months to make this house; towards the end of creating it, we worked 12 hour days quite often. Our Fairy Treehouse was exhibited at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland in 1995 for a year and was chosen the 4th favorite work of art out of the 400 artworks in the museum's inagural exhibit. There is an observatory at the very top with telescopes, a sculpturing table and clay, pots to plant flowers, and little chairs. There are stairways that waunder all throughout the fairy treehouse; there are nearly hidden little rooms, balconies, windowboxes, sleeping hollows, garden rooms, little ladders leading to separate little overhanging rooms and just endless, amazing detail that captivates a person for hours. Even Mike and I still love looking at every detail in this house. It is very close to our hearts; we put so much love and energy into creating it.....all of our dreams of the kind of house we would someday love to really live in. There is a library/music room with books and musical instruments, there is a little children's play room and an art balcony. Endless surprises everywhere.
I would be happy to email you more pictures of the fairy treehouse, if you are interested. The pictures I posted here are not the best ones we have; the best pictures we have are too high resolution to post here, but I can email them to you. Also, the shipping costs I have listed here are only estimates. We would have to check on the cost for shipping depending on the area you live in. Please contact us if you are serious about purchasing this house and we will let you know of the shipping cost. We also would be happy to hand deliver the house, if you live in the U.S.
