Caravans in the Treetops (treehouse)

free spirit sphere tree-house


Built on vision and engineering these handcrafted spheres are suspended like pendants from a web of rope. They occupy a truly unique place in the world while providing a habitat for the un-tamed spirit that exists in us all and they can be found in a Vancouver forest.” (Designer: Tom Chudleigh)


Now my fellow folly fanciers, since so many of you seem to like treehouses, I thought I include a post about these wooden Free Spirit Spheres which are to be found on Vancouver Island. I must admit I thought there would be the usual seating and some rugs inside. That was until I watched the short video (here – on Youtube: )


Look it is fitted out with a table, a kitchenette and bunk beds. It is for all the world like a caravan in the treetops.

When I win the lottery and buy a secluded mansion and construct a full set of follies in its grounds, an aerial Caravan, sorry Free Spirit Sphere, will certainly be in there somewhere. I might camouflage mine to disappear into the treescape. For the present if I ever go to Vancouver Island, where they are situated, I shall surely rent Eve, Eryn or Melody overnight.
