Tree Houses!

As a child I used to dream of living in a tree house. Not simple and rustic, the ones in my dreams would be fairly elaborate, including elevators going up the trunk of the tree complete with wrap around porches. The pictures below make me very happy! Although I do enjoy any tree house now.
The TreeHouse Workshop is a Seattle-based company that takes the art of constructing tree houses very seriously. They build an average of one tree house per month and hire extremely able builders and carpenters to construct their projects. Their finished works vary in luxury but some even include fireplaces!

Designed by Lukasz Kos. Posing as a Japanese lantern on stilts, Kos’ creation floats within the fir trees on Lake Muskoka, Ontario, an elegant slatted structure that scales the trees and lets light radiate down it’s core.

Found in Alnwick Gardens is this tree house. At 6,000 square feet, it’s one of the largest wooden tree houses in the world.

designed by Takashi Kobayashi - this tree house is in Japan and was designed for a Nescafe commercial that is shown in Japan.
