as chris brings up- consider that the house will outlive the tree. also consider the house departing from the traditional typology. have you considered a structure that touchs the ground lightly or even one that is tensile ? consider ways to avoid harming the tree, consider ways to have it taken apart and reassembled elsewhere, consider ways for the house to touch the ground lightly on as few 'contact points' as possible . . . challenge your notions further not just with the inclusion of the tree but with the making of the house itself.
