The upcoming era is an era of Eco friendly world. As a young child or perhaps even an adult, who hasn’t dreamed of living tree houses? Some structures are built on trees or hung from trees, but some unusual tree house building designs are even grown from trees or built right into a tree. Some people live in trees as a luxury, some to help save the environment and others out of tradition or necessity. Here are ten incredible tree house designs that range from functional to fanciful, sustainable to strange and affordable to incredibly expensive.
Fun & Adventure
This picturesque treehouse is set in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside and was featured as part of Discovery Channel’s ‘Tree Team’ series.
The main structure of the treehouse has been built about 4 meters off the ground just to one side of the main tree. The exterior of the treehouse is finished with a combination of rustic sawn “waney edge” timber cladding and cedar shingles set in a random style, whilst the inside is lined with soft wood tongue and groove cladding. A secondary drinks deck for the adults has also been built and is connected to the treehouse via an exciting rope bridge. The drinks deck is set high up in a pine tree on the edge of a rocky outcrop with fantastic views back towards the home and out across the countryside.
