You need to consult a structural engineer before the walls fall down.

Haha its only an idea. Been saving up and wanting to build a dream home. My dream has trees in it :p

If it was to big of a deal to build something like this, I can change it. Just was interested in what everyone had to say.

The universe brings you what you give out. Like light from the darkness. We manifest our world. After all, we are the definers, the builders! Haha matches the site now :p If you build a building without support it falls. Blah blah Im sure you see my point. Well imagine your psyche being a building. Every one of your thoughts is a creation by you. Are you not worried about the structure of your thoughts always? How do you feel about every thought that crosses your mind.

It would be better for the environment if you just skipped the walls and roof and lived in the unencumbered forest. The trees are just one part of the ecosystem and they need the rest of the ecosystem to thrive. If left open the rain would water your trees naturally and the wildlife could come and go freely. Your forest needs the natural season changes to survive best. If one cares about the trees one wouldn't lock them up.

Most Greenhouses aren't 4 stories tall and don't have plants that push their roots through the foundation walls.
