Yellow Treehouse

Back when Flash ruled the internet I was part of the team that delivered an award winning website that documented the challenge that Yellow gave one reader to build a treehouse that could operate as a restaurant using only the Yellow Pages Business Directory to find contractors and suppliers.

For 30 days webcams live streamed the build process and the various challenges and hiccups that went along with that. And finally the treehouse really did open up as a restaurant for a limited time. The tree house subsequently returned to the ownership of the landowner whose tree it was (a giant Redwood) that provided the foundation for the house. It still exists, and if you drive SH1 just south of Warkworth you can still spot it.

The website even won a silver pencil!
