What if we told you you could own your very own Ewok-meets- Aarnio  hanging treehouse ? Canada-based Tom Chudleigh creates these bubblicious Free Spirit Eco Spheres  that sway amidst the coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest. Available for purchase or for rent, they offer a whimsical new way to experience the outdoors.
Chudleigh’s simple floating spheres  are hung like pendants from the treetops. Each sphere is handcrafted from fiberglass and locally sourced wood, can accommodate up to 4 people, and is capable of accepting an electrical line for electricity and heating. A weblike support system ensures that the spheres stay stable, an they can be reached by spiral staircases wound ’round the tree trunks.
Free Spirit Eco Spheres  provide for the perfect outdoor retreat; as Tom says, “they occupy a truly unique place in the world while providing a habitat for the un-tamed spirit that exists in us all.”
