Every kid at some point probably had a fantasy about building the most epic treehouse ever in which they could hide away from the world, their parents, and deny all form of responsibility. Set out with a vision, a few old wood planks and a wooden platform they removed from the wall of their parents garage, the epic treehouse more than likely ended in a cold and fairly unstable hideaway beneath the sticky sap dripping leaves. Not at all what they’d envisioned, yet it was theirs. Imagine being able to do it over again and do it right (or have someone else do it for you). Owning a luxury tree house is no longer a fantasy but a reality and the lucky ones have a nicer pad than one could even imagine.
