Treehouse Living



Try a treehouse!

Treehouses aren’t just for kids anymore.

In fact, historically, they never were.


British explorer Capt. James Cook detailed, in his journal, encounters in Tasmania with populations who lived high up in the trees.

During medieval times, Queen Elizabeth I often attended small dinner parties held in a treehouse on the outskirts of London.

And depraved Roman ruler, Caligula, had an enormous treehouse constructed in a forest on palace grounds in which he held upscale banquets that degenerated into wild treehouse orgies!

Although treehouse living originated in the South Pacific & Southeast Asia, entire families are living in treehouses around the world.

Definitely don’t wanna roll out of the wrong side of the bed in a treehouse!

What do you think of treehouse living?

Can you see yourself / your family living in a treehouse?


Think humans are the only ones with pie in the SKY?

  1. I had a great tree house that my uncle built for us when we lived in Canada. My cousins and I spent almost the entire summer holiday in it!! Would love to live in one! Very interesting post!!

  3. It is lovely, I went to a huge tree house in almost Scotland, in Alnwick Gardens. It is a restaurant and you can walk up and around. It was beautiful! Would love living in one!

    • Oh! Swiss Family Robinson – love that adventure! Well, since you’ve already built one treehouse, think you’re up for another? An adult version, complete with en suite master bedroom & cable? 😉

  4. Okay, SB – you’ve definitely outdone yourself with this post. This was fascinating and so incredibly neat. (But I think I would have a problem convincing Gracie on the merits of it).
