Latest on the Docter treehouse project

The Contra Costa Times (a local San Francisco Bay Area newspaper) reports the latest on Pete Docter's wonderfully whimsical plan for the property he co-owns with his wife in the city of Lafayette, California.

As scheduled, the City of Lafayette Planning Commission met yesterday to vote on the architectural proposal. The commissioners voted to approve the granting of a zoning exemption to the project, bringing it "one step closer to reality". (The most spectacular part of the plan, the 60-foot tall artificial tree, exceeded the City's zoning height limit of 30 feet.)

After formally approving the resolution voted on yesterday, the project must still go to the City's Design Review Commission for additional examination and then back to the Planning Commission for one more review before construction can get under way.

Till then, enjoy these pictures of the scale models built of the project.

Could Pete Docter's house be anymore awesome? I think not.
