When I was a kid a few boards in a tree that gave even the slightest shelter against the elements was considered a treehouse and we left it to our imagination to fill in all the gaps. These treehouses take the cake though, there are a few that I think we can all agree are more like treemansions. Take a look!
The top image which depicts a treehouse resembling a Christmas decoration is known as the Yellow Treehouse and is located in New Zealand. The treehouse that is suspended by scaffolding is now completed and is a Treehouse Hotel located in Sweden that for $600 dollars a night you can enjoy.
I’m particularly impressed aesthetically with the treehouse in the top left corner. It reminds me of something out a JRR Tolkien novel.
If you ever wanted to live in the trees fulltime then there is a company called Blue Forest that can make your dreams come true. The company specializes in producing fully functional and totally liveable treehouses. The bottom photo is called the Canopy Cathedral and is located in Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.
The top photo is a more modern treehouse design while the two bottom photos illicit thoughts of treehouses from fairytales.
The top photo could be considered the mother of all treehouses. Known as the Minister’s House it is considered the largest treehouse in the world, and is located in Tennessee. The second tree, is also a multi-level treehouse and is part of Treehouse Village Resort in Kavieng, Papua New Guinea.
One of these is not actually a real treehouse. Can you guess which one it is? If you guessed the one that is set up on top of the giant tree trunk then you would be right. It is actually a Japanese restaurant that is a totally concrete made structure which customers get up to via elevator. While not an actual treehouse it is very interesting nonetheless.
