The wood used to make a two by four will grow back so no problem. There are tree farms specifically for this purpose.

None of those houses would meet the minimum requirements to pass any sort of code in any civilized nation. No hurricane straps for the roof and those egg shaped doorways are not wheelchair accessible.

Looks like a fire hazzard and may not meet the minimum fire codes either.

There are regulations for thicknesses of walls and even heights of rooms. Egress rules, size/location of rooms, foundations, floor assemblies, roof structures/assemblies, energy efficiency, stairs and halls, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, site drainage & storage, appliance, lighting, fixtures standards, and occupancy rules.

If you owned any of these structures, you wouldn't get a COO.
