When property taxes in central Austin began soaring in the lush Bouldin Creek neighborhood, designer Christina Campbell of Confluence Studios
decided to take action. She split up her lot, sold her house and used the money to design a new treetop home in her old backyard.
She took the opportunity to create a home that's budget friendly and environmentally conscious. She bought much of the wood from ReStore, a building materials outlet benefiting Habitat for Humanity. What's more, Campbell's home adheres to aspects of environmental psychology, with private personal areas and a deep connection to the leafy landscape.
