Pin Picks Tree House

A lot of us have visions of escaping to a magical hideaway somewhere in the wilderness. This week, tree houses are trending on Pinterest and it seems like a lot of you are dreaming of what it’d be like to live or play high above in the canopies.

From recreational playhouses to isolated living in the forest, Pinners are letting their imagination run free with creative tree house inspiration. So for this week’s Pin Picks–and with a little help from our Pinners–we discover your dream tree house.

Childhood memories - You don’t need to be secluded to have a private sanctuary. In fact, if you have kids, Lee Howard shows us how to build outdoor tree and playhouses in the backyard, even with salvaged materials.

Grown-up dreams - From design to architecture, Martin Salzmann shows us functional tree house ideas from around the world.

Feline freedom - Claudette Darnell shows us how to build indoor and outdoor tree houses that allow our furry friends to climb and explore.

A discreet hideaway - For those looking to escape into wonder, Amalya Haver shares tree house concepts that’ll let you slip into the sky without being bothered.

To live in the canopy - If you’re done with city life and looking for alternative living, Jesse Gaskins has boards with fully operating tree homes with bathrooms and libraries!
