I’m a Grown-Ass Man and I Want this Treehouse (14 Photos)

The HemLoft is a secret tree house that’s hiding in the woods of Whistler, Canada. It was fabricated by Joel Allen, a former software developer who was laid off from his job in 2006 and decided he’d rather retire than find other work. This was an unsuccessful attempt for the then-26 year old, but the time off shifted his career path to carpentry. The newly-acquired skills made it possible for him to design and build this getaway over the course of many years.

The egg-like structure is shaped using plywood ribs to set its form and scavenged wood to fill out the rest. Inside, it’s a two-storey minimalist setup, best for someone who enjoys camping because it has no running water or electricity (although there is space for a kitchen). The top of HemLoft features pop-open windows that are perfect for quietly observing the surrounding woods and taking in the night stars.

Allen’s handiwork is actually built on a stranger’s land without their permission. Because of this, its location is undisclosed and unknown by most, and the owners of the property have yet to find out about this tucked-away gem.
