New Zealand engineer builds both his tree and his house

Zono Williams, the New Zealand native, has had his fare share of building tree houses while growing up. With all these years of experience under his belt, he has learned that finding the perfect tree to build a house in, can be a challenging task. Which is a part of the reason why now as an adult, he has decided his next tree house project would consist of him building both the tree and house. 

As you can see from the picture above, this project is a little more technical than it looks. In order for the tree to be stable enough to hold the house at the end, Williams had to dig this massive hole, and fill it with these steel bars, which act as the tree's "roots".

Williams, who is a designer and engineer, has invested a total of 50,000 U.S. dollars and has dedicated 3,000 hours of his time into this project. The space includes wireless internet, a sounds system and projection screen, walls that are made up entirely of windows, and a stargazing roof. A beer refrigerator for the space is what he is currently working on, which will be able to dispense on beer at a time. 

 Furniture inside of house was all designed and produced by Williams.
