A dream treehouse · Sheepy Me
I've always wanted a treehouse when I was a child but living in a city made it a little difficult. Instead, we would built forts, tents or just crawl under the bed to play. It's weird right now but back then we really loved having those hideouts where nobody could find us. We could stay there for as long as we wanted. Telling horror stories and feeling like these were the safest places to be. But what happens if you're an adult and still dream of a treehouse? I did a little web research for treehouses all over the world and oh my what I found. Safe Arbor in Switzerland. Trillium. The enchanted forest. A modern, pitched roof treehouse. A treehouse morning. A dream treehouse. Those are just a few of many treehouses.

New Tree Cabin Features Rooftop Deck & Top-Down Entry Not to be outdone by the Mirror Cube or Bird’s Nest, this latest lofted tree hotel room in Sweden seems to shoot through its forest surroundings – a suspended steel bullet in the sky. Unlike its cousins, the means of support are attached at the top, with the cabin hanging from tree-connected steel beams. Likewise, an upper bridge leads to an entryway on the same level as the roof deck, with occupied spaces sitting below. Inside, the living room faces a fantastic view down the steep slope and up the next rise, while the bedroom behind likewise looks out on the forest surroundings but without being visible from the ground below. Long windows along each side provide nearly 360-degree perspectives on what lies on all sides. With little space there is insight is naturally given over toe must-have functions and a modest community space – the roof-topping terrace provides supplemental square footage for outdoor dining and stargazing on a nice night.

World's largest treehouse? 7 trees support 1800 sq ft home Michael Garnier has helped pioneer the craft of modern treehouse construction. His Garnier limb -invented in collaboration with other enthusiasts as an open source project- holds up to 8,000 pounds and allows treehouse builders to create stronger, more durable dwellings in the trees. When Garnier, who owns a treehouse resort with 9 elevated dwellings, decided to build his own home for himself and his wife Peggy, it had to also be nestled in the branches. While his B&B cabins in the air are closer to 100 square feet, for his own home he decided to go big. His home is 1800 square feet on three floors. He calls it the world’s largest treehouse (not a fact, though he challenges anyone to prove him wrong).
