I just spotted this crazy hanging treehouse, which looks like a cross between those uber 60’s hanging bubble chairs and an Ewok dwelling! Designed by Tom Chudleigh the Free Spirit Sphere is an eco-friendly living quarter that was created to co-exist unobtrusively with its forest environment.

I wish these had been around back in the treehouse days of my youth. Too bad these things cost between 100 – 250K. They also have no bathroom and the interior is a bit cramped at 8 sq ft. Guess they are only for the serious tree maven for now. I’m waiting till they release the IKEA version.

    do you feel like an alien that crash-landed in the trees while coming to earth?

    do all the animals and creatures think that you’re an alien?

    i would.

    I remember coming across these last year. I really have to question how much these cost to make if they are selling at that price??

    “co-exist unobtrusively with its forest environment.”

    That doesn’t look quite so ‘unobtrusive’.
