Carriza, DIY Suspended Playhouse

View all 12 Photos

A virtually universal childhood experience, transcending culture and creed, is that of building a tree house or some other kind of adult-proof fortress. Something within us sparks to create hideaways where adolescence can take solace, but to the dismay of the parents charged with construction, this kind of project takes significant amounts of time, effort, and money. For those who ask how to create a backyard Ziggurat without selling their souls for materials and time of day, Carriza is the answer.
Around one cubic meter in volume, Carriza plays house via suspension of a ‘Big-Bag’ strapped to the ground in four directions. Anyone can find the involved materials at a hardware store, and the overall simplicity of the project allows for even some of the greenest DIY’ers to assemble the structure with ease.
