Tiny Floating Zen Cabins

These are tiny floating zen cabins that we’re lucky enough to tour and learn about thanks to Faircompanies.

From the outside, you’ll notice tiny stucco-covered tea rooms with shingled roofs. One is at the top of a tree, and another is hanging between two large ladder-like structures.

When you go inside one, you’ll find cream walls, wooden floors and a hearth. The other is lined with wood panels and has a table for sipping tea.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

    Note that one can build most anything as a swing without any code problems because there is no law against it.

    No serious Zen Master would kill a tree to make something this stupid.

      But he’s “celebrating impermanence”. I suppose that means you need to top off all the trees surrounding your little statement to impermanence as well. How long do you suppose a topped tree would support a treehouse versus a live one. Celebrating impermanence indeed. Wasteful and disgraceful.

    Golly, it makes getting up a ladder to a tiny house loft a breeze. Hope the trees don’t fall down.
