Local genius (and loon) Rainier de'Lorme, being the environmentalist that he was, chose to convert a small, abandoned tree farm in Riverview into his new home. Even so, he refused to give up his comforts and had up to date furnishings. Unfortunately for Rainier, only a year after the completion of his home, he met his demise in his lab. Pity that the formula he was creating to quadruple the effectiveness of life fruit was off by one quarter of an ounce.

The home is now up for sale and, due to the unique structure and landscaping, will not be available for long. La Maison d'Arbre is perfect for anyone wishing to escape from the reality of our world. There are 5 large windows overlooking inward in the property; two in the kitchen overlooking the center garden and living room, one in the living room with a mirror image, one in the bedroom with forest views, and one in the bathroom overlooking the lake. If you're going to live in the wilderness, make sure to take full advantage! Mr. de'Lorme carefully designed his house so that each room conveyed a specific mood and retained a specific purpose in observance with that mood.

The interior colors of the home reflect each mood.
  • Orange: It symbolizes balance and enthusiasm, both which with Rainier used in creating his formulas. They are fundamental truths which should never be forgotten in any kitchen.
  • Blue: The color of cleanliness, tranquility, and security. The color of cleanliness for a bathroom; how original. And maybe to help you feel more "secure" in your birthday suit?
  • Yellow: The symbol of friendship, it also represents optimism and hope. A perfect color for a living room, where new friendships often start and the place more most living takes place.
  • Green: This color denotes health, renewal, and fertility. I don't think this one needs any further explanation.

The garden is perfect for quiet solitude and meditation or even as a spot for house parties. It embodies charm and life. The lake is swimable as well, as shown below.
