trees over buildings

I've opened this topic because a dream that I've always had is that of a tree over a house. And when I say a tree, I mean a big one, like an oak. Is it impossible?
So please post examples of trees over buildings of any kind.

Do you mean growing atop the house? Or a tree that is very tall and branches out over the house?

It's quite common for trees to start growing on top of grassed roof on old (and often abounded) buildings in rural Norway. Example:
