"Fab Tree Hab's"!

"The "fab tree hab" is a fanciful orb of a home that is literally alive, with a frame of growing tree trunks grafted together, insulation made of clay and straw, and vines instead of vinyl siding. The heating, cooling, and plumbing would all mimic natural processes.

"The structure is a statement against cutting down timber," said Mitchell Joachim , the architect who designed the house, "composed of 100 percent living nutrients."
