Gennaro Brooks-Church, the director of the green building firm Eco Brooklyn, built this charming treehouse for his three children in the backyard of their Brooklyn home. He used only salvaged materials, most of which came from an old Manhattan water tower.

“I just like to build, so it was an excuse to do that,” Brooks-Church told TreeHugger. “And the kids really wanted a treehouse.”
