Fascinating Treehouses Around the World

Treehouses are structures built around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level. They are every children’s dream and over the years, the concept of treehouses have changed from a kids playground to something as modern as suites and restaurants. Here are some of the world’s most fascinating treehouses:

  1. These are certainly unique ones. I love treehouses! Although I think I’m at this point where I prefer comfort over mere aesthetics. 🙂 Some of these look comfortable enough.

  2. That Boeing 727 plane is quite mesmerizing. I would guess that the person who bought it must be really passionate about planes and must really love tree houses. When I was young, it was my dream to have one but sadly, we did not have a tree in our backyard. Looking at your list made me remember about Tarzan. Do you have plans on building one too?

  3. Amazing!!! When I was a kid, tree-houses were like a sanctuary – no one could go in or out without my “permission”. Hahahaha. I love the resto concept. I think it brings people closer to nature somehow, and it’s just a new experience.
