Kids ever since dreamed of building their own tree house as a sanctuary away from parents, away from the real world. Some of us still do. In Western countries the tree house is said to be only for kids, but is it? People from the other side of the globe see the tree house as their traditional home. For instance, for the Korowai community in New Guinea, the tree house is the best option of accommodation due the environmental conditions. They raise their houses up above to protect their homes from sneaky animals and constant floods.

Fortunately, the idea of tree house is no longer left to rust in the pages of a children's books, nor on the other side of the globe. Architects and designers develop new concepts of tree houses for a child inside you, who never grew up. In these days, everyone can fulfill their old as the hills dreams about having a tree house or even spending your holiday there. The conventional wooden cabin design is left into the previous century as these new houses feature multiple floors, electricity, glass, mirror or even lightweight aluminium alloy parts.
