2. A Live-In Oregon Tree house
The world’s largest concentration of tree houses is found in Cave Junction, Oregon. Here, architect Charles Greenwood spent 12 years building tree houses for others. But in 2006, he took some engineering risks by building his own live-in treehouse. Set aloft with the help of some support poles, the studio is fully outfitted for modern life, complete with an east-facing “tea deck” and west-facing “drink deck” that allow him to enjoy the scenery from sunset to sunrise.
1. The HemLoft – Whistler, Canada
A secret tree house, hiding in the woods of Whistler. Joel Allen, the former software developer built his egg-shaped structure, called HemLoft. He built this on government-owned crown land in the woods outside of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Truly a labor of love, Allen and his fiancee, Heidi, crafted much of it together using free materials claimed from Craigslist ads. It hangs on a precipitous slope, in a towering stand of hemlocks, about a five minute walk from the nearest road.
