Is my Tree House a Green Building?

Modularisation – that’s what came to mind when the builder was removing redundant acoustic panels from a rehearsal space on a refurbishment project I am working on. These 1.2m x 1.2m panels could be “clipped” together to make a tree house for my kids. It was with great satisfaction last weekend and the invaluable help of a local joiner Vincent, that my kids moved into their recycled tree house. They had been waiting patiently all weekend to see it realized.
So the ingredients are – 8 acoustic panels, scaffolding board, old gum polls, various bits of wood, handle and hinges found in my tool box. Purchases from local hardware store – screws, sand and cement, rafters and corrugated sheeting.
