The Pentagon was started during a one month Level 1 Treehouse Construction Workshop at the TreeHouse Community's base in Abri, Auroville. A lot of helping hands were involved in making it a unique treehouse of patchwork. It includes a long staircase on one single tree post, an arrival deck with in built benches, a spiral staircase to the second floor, a closed room for meetings and relaxing between work. It was built in the center of our workshop and is the main treehouse shown to intrigued visitors.
