Ewok House, Tom Chudleigh, Free Spirit Sphere, Eco-friendly treehouse [1]

I just spotted this crazy hanging treehouse, which looks like a cross between those uber 60’s hanging bubble chairs [2] and an Ewok dwelling! Designed by Tom Chudleigh the Free Spirit Sphere [3] 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.
