Treehouses: Free Spirit Spheres


The Melody Sphere at Free Spirit Spheres Vancouver Island

How great are these Globe tree houses? They are called Free Spirit Spheres and are  set among the tall trees of the west coast rainforest of Vancouver Island, Canada. What makes these beautiful Sphere treehouses even better is that they are also holiday lets :)

"The motion in a sphere is a slow gentle rocking when the wind blows. The rope tethers are almost vertical which lets the treetops move considerably while hardly moving the sphere at all. The sphere movement is a muted average of the movement of the 3 treetops. When another body inside a sphere shifts his/her weight the motion is abrupt. This is because the mass of the sphere is low. "

... sounds heavenly doesn't it?

My two little boys would love to sleep in one of those!

i've stayed here and the couple who live there and create the spheres are so warm and kind. i got to tour the shop and see how the spheres are made and the welcome basket which awaits you in the sphere is so sweet.
loved sleep-swaying and even the sound of the acorns being dropped on the roof by the squirrels were lulling. :)

Sounds amazing, closest thing to being a bird in a nest. I would love this, thank you for sharing!
