Building sustainably is very important in this day and age in order to help our environment as well as cut costs in the long term. New homes each day are being build more sustainable than the previous. Because of that, all types of new buildings should also incorporate sustainable methods that everyone from children to adults can enjoy. The world-renowned author of the famous Harry Potter Seriers, J.K. Rowling, designed a two-story, multiple building, sustainable treehouse with the company Blue Forest for her children in Edinburgh, Scotland. The treehouse structures look strikingly familiar, similar to the Hogwarts School of Wizardry. This massive treehouse features two-story high structures, balconies, turrets, trap doors, secret entrances, slides, and spiral staircases. Even though this structure is so massive, it is still being built sustainably because the company building the treehouse specializes in sustainable, eco-buildings. Blue forest builds sustainably in many different ways including solar water heating, composting toilets, and rainwater harvesting systems.
