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.

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.

Stefaan de Crook an urban street artist uses a high power pressure washer to carve artwork into the moss growing outside of the STUK Art Center in Leuven, Belgium.
