This is the Pinecone Treehouse: A geometric marvel designed by treehouse extraordinaire Dustin Feider who pushed the boundaries of architecture with this “zome” shape that’s suspended between Redwoods in California.
It has a bolted steel frame that’s been cleverly cabled to the surrounding trees in such a way as to keep from harming the trees. The power for the stringed lights inside comes from the nearby house of the owners. At ground level there is a smaller treehouse bathroom, with a shower and composting toilet that look out on the forest.
I’ve never seen anything quite like this, and you can get more information about the build, structure and suspension via the video tour with Bryce Langston here.

I really wish people would leave the trees alone.
Let the animals live in them
There’s a big wildfire still burning in the area near this treehouse. I hope it hasn’t been affected. It’s a fantastic piece of art.
That would be so sad!
It’s an amazing piece of art and reminds me of a huge multilevel tree house my cousins and I built one summer in the woods on my grandma’s farm. We each had our own sleeping level, and drew up our water from the creek with a bucket on a pully (yes, we were so far out that we actually drank the creek water without getting sick; this was back in the 50s). We packed food in tin boxes and suspended the boxes up in the tree so the animals could not get to it (though the ants sometimes did), and slept peacefully in those huge branches under the stars many nights. There is a particular comforting and appealing aspect to tree houses, and I tend to think it stems from an innate sense of survival, but it also stems from our desire to be close to nature and surrounded by beauty. I love tree houses.
Wow! That sounds utterly magical. Maybe your next tiny house ought to be a treehouse!
