Sleep in the Trees

WHO DOESN’T LOVE A TREEHOUSE? EVERY KID SHOULD HAVE ONE. I have loved treehouses since the movie Swiss Family Robinson came out in 1960. Every adult should sleep in one—at least once. Well, there is a very cool company in Germany who can build your treehouse to your specs and to fit your trees and local environment. I look at these as cozy sleeping pods, high in the trees and a getaway for couples or family.

We’ll transform your individual ideas and wishes into ingenious and inspiring dwellings that combine versatility with craftsmanship of the highest quality and maximum safety standards. A major objective thereby is to handle the trees and their surroundings with the utmost care, ensuring their protection and preservation.
