How delighted would you be if we told you that you could own your very own hanging treehouse ? Inspired by the natural world around him, Canada-based Tom Chudleigh creates gorgeous wooden Free Spirit Eco Spheres , which can either sit on the ground or be suspended high in the trees by means of suspension lines and webbing. Available for purchase or for rent at Tom’s eco-retreat in the Pacific Northwest , they offer a whimsical new way to experience the outdoors. Whether your heart lies in Endor  or Lothlorien, these hanging treehouses are sure to rejuvenate the wild-loving spirit within.
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 web-like support system ensures that the spheres stay stable, and 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 untamed spirit that exists in us all.”
