Amazing Treehouses - Ewoks would be jealous!

Ewoks would be jealous of these treehouses. They include the worlds largest treehouse and cool celebrity treehouses. Did you want to live in a tree house when you were children growing up? What better way to sleep than directly under the branches of a protective tree gazing up at the stars above. And, while some tree houses are minimalist by their very small nature, today’s tree house architects have gone beyond small stature to include tree houses fit for hotel rooms, lodges and restaurants. Check these treehouses out...







Some treehouses certailnly look more strucutally safer than others!


The amazing Yellow Treehouse Restaurant in Auckland, New Zealand pictured below is not only a very cool restaurant but an architectural masterpiece.






Some more crazy, cool and very unusual treehouses....





Tree houses rise to the ‘green’ challenge to become ideal tree homes that do little to no damage to its host tree.































And finally....Swedish firm Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter is the genius behind this incredibly cool and nearly invisible treehouse. Located in northern Sweden, the treehouse more specifically serves as a hotel. The mirrored glass walls provide what I can only imagine to be a stunning 360 degree view....cool!

My wife and I live in a self-supporting treehouse. It is 700 square feet, and has all the conveniences. We live in it full time, year around. I would send pic, but don't know how. My question is: do you know where I can get house insurance? My previous insurer won't cover a treehouse. We have too much to lose invested in this project, but also consider it absolutely safe, and in no greater risk than any other house out here in the woods. Trees get blown down and on top of houses everywhere. At least this one has a house around it to help protect it.

how can that glass tree house last for more than 2 or 3 years. as the tree grows it would put a lot of pressure on the glass which would very likely make it break. with wood its easy enough to cut a bigger hole but to my understanding glass isn't that easy? the only other option i can see is to girdle the tree and kill it but even that isn't a great idea because eventually its gonna fall over?
