Wednesday Whim - Trio of Treehouses


When I was growing up, I dreamed of having a treehouse. A secret retreat. A place of my own. A spot to "get away" from adults and play with whatever I wanted. It was a kid's dream! Imagine my delight when I across these beautifully constructed trio of treehouses designed by environmentalist, Peter Bahouth and built by Nick Hobbs.

These treehouses are in the middle of a forest in Atlanta and they sit 50 feet above the ground. Aptly named, "Mind," "Body," and "Soul" they are meant to stimulate the senses. Naturally, his inspiration for these magical treehouses came from a childhood dream of building the "biggest tree fort imaginable." After six months of planning and six weeks of construction (using spare windows and 80-year-old windows) his ultimate tree fort became a reality. Suspension bridges connect each treehouse and each space is decorated with flea market finds and personal mementos. 


Pretty dreamy, eh? For different photos, read this.

  3. Just magical!! I am a huge fan of treehouses—they really amaze me. My husband and I love watching Treehouse Masters on Animal Planet. It is crazy what can be done among the trees! I think what I love so much about treehouses is that you are really a part of nature. So relaxing! Lovely post :)

  14. Ever since watching Now and Then, I've always wanted a tree house. It's totally acceptable for a woman to build one solely for herself, right!? Hehe.
    Great pics! Stop by anytime and say hello! :-)
