I have always loved the idea of a willow house and seeing this one mentioned recently on the crafty crow got me thinking about other outdoor living natural structures for play.

Wow! I would’ve loved to have one of those when I was a kid. My brother and I were always building cubby houses out of anything we could find.

This looked great so I did a quick internet search to see if willow can grow in sunny Sydney and turns out willows are a pest plant in Australia.

yes i know – but I am sure there must be alternative plants – if you find out let me know.

this is. the. best. idea. EVER! I am so in LOVE with this! i have to do this for sure! We bought a brand spankin new house this summer, so it has NO gardens or anything out in the yard yet. This is totally doable, functional, interesting to look at, and productive! HURRAH! THANK YOU!!
