Working idea

The third story of the backyard treehouse is a meditation platform, if nothing else. Thus, the roof design, as seen from above, is a geometric mandala, reminiscent of a lotus flower, with hinges on the “flat” side of each petal and hooks/handles on the “point” that will open up the roof flaps/petals for stargazing.  More details as they develop…have to build a working prototype model to make sure I get this right before I’m suspended from a rope harness in the treetops…
