    Default The HemLoft - a secret treehouse

    HI folks
    Got this by email.

    'Squatter' secretly builds incredible (but thoroughly illegal) treehouse hidden in Canada's Whistler forest just yards from multi-million homes

    It took months to find the right tree to build on, and when he did the spot was on public land looking down on a row of multi-million dollar homes.

    But that didn't stop Joel Allen - he just built this incredible egg-shaped treehouse in Canada anyway, without telling anyone. read more

    The computer technician-turned-carpenter started off by creating a scale model of his design to test its strength and durability, before beginning the months-long quest to find the perfect tree.

    What a genius. All of a sudden I want to be his birdy. There are no limitations to the creative mind.

    Great concept but looks like he may have put nails and screws into the tree. He may have used some other method to keep the house up that I am not aware of. I would not be happy about nails and screws. Frances.
