Sleep in the Trees

(Above) Treehouse in summer, and below, in winter.

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.

From their web site: Baumraum specializes in the planning and realization of treehouses and other constructions in natural surroundings. 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.

Baumraum combines the creative and constructive expertise of an architect with the long-standing experience of a landscape architect, a tree expert, and established, reputable craftsmen.
