There were only 4 people there when I arrived and while I was helping myself to a cup of coffee someone came over to check me in! She didn't see my name on the list and had I signed up. "Oh!" I said with surprise, " I didn't know I needed to sign up." It turned out this was a fee class and the class was full. How come I hadn't seen that on the notice I got from them on Facebook? I drank my coffee and went to have a wander around the store.
We are so lucky to have a store like this in Austin. I just wish I was about 50 years younger. How many times have I said that? You can read all about the the Tree House story here
I doubt there is not a single thing in the store that you wouldn't wish you had in your home. From the solar panels, on demand water heaters, insulation, VOC free paints, gorgeous wool carpets, stone flooring, tiles, kitchen cabinets, lighting, water purification systems, composting systems, plus all kinds of items to make living more healthy. And of course the plastered walls.
In the garden section they have a huge display of water collection systems.
As well as organic seeds, soils, pots and plants.
Bird, butterfly and bat houses of all kinds.
Kits for starting you own bee hives,
I must have spent over an hour there just walking around looking at everything they had. The morning was not lost after all. I left with grand ideas about replacing our current water collection tanks for one of those real ones. New carpet? It is about time. Bees? How I would love to have my own honey. And solar power? Like I said I wish I was 50 years younger.
Tree House is Located at 4477 South Lamar Blvd #600, close to Central Market. If you have never been they would love to have you visit.
