The Portable Treehouse Tent For Grown Ups

Remember how you always wanted a treehouse as a kid? Remember how your dreams were crushed every Christmas when you never got one? All your years of disappointment were not in vain, because this grown up treehouse combines arboreal living at its finest with the experience of low-impact camping.

And now that you're an adult, you've definitely got a spare $28k to drop on one, right?

Designed by Dutch arboriculturist Bruno de Grunne in collaboration with the French arboreal society Trees and People, "Dom'Up" makes giant strides in sustainable tree-dwelling. The proprietary suspension system is designed to work with the trees, leaving no traces of construction.

By using the space between two trees, instead of building around or through just one, this suspended cabin won't disturb wildlife or require any cutting or drilling into the tree trunks.

Inside, an octagonal platform supports an interior with room for a king-sized bed, and an outdoor patio area. The included tarp can be sealed or left open, depending on temperature. De Grunne is said to be developing a heated version for the next winter, so you can enjoy living like a squirrel year round.

Each Dom'Up takes two days to install, but can supposedly remain suspended with minimal maintenance for years. Which is good, because you've got a lot of lost treehouse time to catch up on.
