Housing market (still) got you down? Need a little escape? No worries—take your anxiety right up a tree.
Tiny houses are increasing in popularity as a growing number of people are forgoing the bloated McMansion in favor of efficient, streamlined lifestyles. Not only are these smaller abodes more cost efficient, they can also be far more energy efficient than regular homes, including many small apartments.
While most tiny houses are planted firmly on the ground, these tiny treehouses have the added benefit of height. Some are unique for their design aesthetics, others because they’re made entirely with repurposed and reclaimed materials.
Whatever their special traits, these tree dwellings are inspiring enough to make you want to ditch the excesses of traditional living and scale down into a little piece of Zen.
