Seriously, who doesn’t love a great treehouse?
For the young, a house in a tree is, simply, a place where Mom and Dad aren’t—a backyard retreat used by middle-schoolers to escape all that totally uncool parental interference.
For adults, treehouses are sanctuaries of silence, oases in the sky worthy of a visit when your inner compass can’t find north, when you long for a break from the daily grind.
Camouflaged into canopies or purposefully exposed, balanced atop towering redwoods or carved into a cypress, there can be no doubt that treehouses are unique works of elevated art.
Behold 13 of the coolest.
