Designed by Vancouver architect Tom Chud, this ultimate tree house comes with a double bed, a counter, table, bench seats and storage lockers. It's made of laminated wood coated in fiberglass and finished like a "fine yacht," suspended by four attachment points at the top and bottom and accesed via a circular stairway and a short suspension bridge.
If you were wondering what to get me for my birthday -- well, not this. The poodles are big fans of modern architecture, but a lifetime in single-story homes has left them a bit stair challenged. And that suspension bridge is nothing short of an invitation to disaster.

Sorry for the light posting today, it's a travel day. But I'll be back at it tomorrow!
