Ovular Arboreal Abodes
The Hemloft Treehouse is Egg-Shaped and Forest-bound

Somewhere on crown lands near Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, the Hemloft treehouse encircles the trunk of a tree hanging preciously over a steep slope in a coniferous forest. Its creator, Joel Allen, explains that the exact location of the egg-shaped treehouse is kept secret, as it is illegal to build on crown lands without the permission of the Canadian government. Still, the structure is only about a five minute walk from the nearest road, so it isn’t too detached from wider civilization. 

Allen began his self-funded project while he was living out of the back of his car. He explains on his website that, because he was working in a forest, he could only use manual, non-electric tools to build the structure. Though, according to the maverick carpenter, he, “was armed with a couple of the most powerful tools a carpenter can have: blind naiveté and supreme determination.”
