Urnatur, Sweden. “The wood hermitage is a place for relaxation and reflection. Here in
the forest you can enjoy the luxury of simplicity, living in
hand-crafted cottages, or in a tree house, without electricity. Sit down
by the fireplace and savour the moment. The soft light of the kerosene
lamp and the scent of boiled coffee readily guide you to intimate
conversations, far from everyday pressures.”
Treehouse, Redmond, USA, by Steve Rondel http://goo.gl/B4RMuF
“Steve Rondel’s children grew up before he could finish this exeptional treehouse. He started it 20 years ago when his oldest son was 5. Now he is looking for grandchildren to give him an excuse to push on."
Treehouse around the Oak. A modern treehouse built around an oak tree by a German architect Andreas Wenning. The treehouse was built 11 meters from the ground and offers some stunning views from the patio. Inside there’s a double bed fitted within half of the treehouse. The windows are perfect for stargazing!
“Taylor Camp was born in the spring of 1969 when artist / oceanographer Howard
Taylor (brother of actress Elizabeth) bailed out of jail a rag-tag band
of young mainlanders arrested for vagrancy and invited them to live on
his land; thus setting off immigrating waves of hippies, surfers,
seekers and psychologically scarred Vietnam vets to Kauai’s North Shore.
by the State in 1977, government workers torched the camp before the
last resident moved out, leaving behind ashes and magical memories of
“the best days of our lives”.
It’s been just over a year since Kristen and I moved into our magical treehouse in the woods. It still feels amazing that we actually get to live somewhere so cool and staying home all day feels like a treat. —Mike
The Redmond Treehouse - Steven Rondel began building this treehouse when his eldest son was just five-years-old. Sadly his children grew up before he managed to finish it. He is now hoping for some grandchildren to give him the inspiration to restore the treehouse and bring it to life.
If you happen to be in the area, you’ll find it at NE 73rd Way, off 148th Avenue NE, next to the Grass Lawn Community Park in Redmond Washington. Steven has no problem allowing visitors to look inside the treehouse if they ask.
