10 Treehouses cooler than your apartment

These ten treehouses proves that these magical tree structures aren’t not just things of whimsy, they are in fact in some cases cooler than your average apartment.

Inhabit Treehouse



This first treehouse might still be a concept but designer Antony Gibbon's Inhabit Treehouse is finished with a cedar cladding that ages along with the structure, so that it will blend into its surroundings over time.

The Birds' Nest




From the outside The Birds' Nest looks exactly like the thing it is named after, although this circular treehouse at the Swedish Treehotel is thoroughly polished.

Cocoon Tree



For the more adventurous treehouse-builder, these Cocoon Trees are spherical waterproof pods that are rigged up onto trees with ropes and nets.

The Mirrorcube



The Mirrorcube is a literally cube in the sky, there is also the added bonus of making you basically invisible.

Ramshackle Treehouse



This treehouse looks maybe a little bit unsafe, but also like a cross between a Tim Burton creation and the Weasley family's abode. It might not appeal to everyone but there is a treehouse for everyone.

Huntsville Botanical Garden Treehouse



Located in Alabama, Huntsville Botanical Garden has exhibited treehouses as part of its Tremendous Treehouses exhibit in 2010. This one in particular looks beautifully geometric.

The Cabin

Free Spirit Spheres



Free Spirit Spheres look almost fictional in the best way possible. These spherical treehouses are accessed by a spiral staircase and suspension bridge, so it's an adventure just to get inside.

The UFO



Live out any alien abduction fantasies, because this treehouse is the real deal. The inside of The UFO is even decorated with space paraphernalia.
