Amazing design, truly beautiful, cant wait for the tour. What happens when it rains?
Where Do You Sleep?????
Here Sam and I live in France.
I’ll write an article on this amazing house.
Excuse me for my english. I don’t speak fluently…
I will help you if I can.
looks charming and a woodcraftsmen delight
Truly a work of art and engineering as well as an inspiration. It must have been a monumental task.
Brilliant, creative and I would like a few dozen of them built on my property.
Where do you live? I would quite happily built you a few, if there is the possibility to live in the forest…
OMG. My long-life dream come true!
hello, i can’t arrive to see your email, im carpenter in france and i make a book, im interresting to see you constructions, where are you ?
can you see my email in the contact section of thehemloft.com? what device are you using to view the site?
Your contact section appears to have a broken link no email shows up from any browser on my machine. Below is the contents of the link.
Hey Kevin, the email address wasn’t supposed to be a clickable link, I’ve changed it now so that it’s just an image (it’s an image so spam robots cannot scrape the text of my site and get my email address). Does the image show up? If so, just read that email address and type it into your email program. If the image with my email address is not showing up please let me know. Thanks.
Sorry that’s what I meant is that the image link is broken. No image is showing, the link is to localhost not your actual web sever.
Ha! Thanks Kevin, I fixed it now. You’re hired as the new web admin : )
Would you mind changing the image to the correct email address? I am not pleased the be receiving your emails, Joel.
sorry brother, the image is correct. People are just misspelling my last name. If you think you are getting a lot of emails, try my inbox : )
Hi joel there is a lawful way to claim the land. Surveying it and registering it (not with the mainstream govt) with a lawful alternate society. And doing a letters patent in a Gazzette. If you r interested call me, I live in whistler. cheers
Awesome, really inspiring. Bravoooo!!!. Don’t give up. Maybe we can help.
Good luck to you and your proyect
Wolfgang, I am certainly interested in this alternative land claim information. I am from Ontario.
It does the soul good to know there are still people out there with vision, creativity and imagination who are motivated by the endeavour.
I built a wonderful treehouse with electricity and a front porch in our backyard. You probably should not have built this on someone else’s land with out permission. I have always said all I want is an acre of my own land that is ajacent to a tract of wild land like this. You should see if you can dismantle this and buy a small lot somewhere close by.
If he took it down and built it on his own bit of land…it would be just a treehouse in his own back yard. The Hemloft is something different… I think he should build more. A whole village of Hemlofts. How cool would that be… He’s a monkey genius!
Always negative people , just ignore them. What you had done is wonderful
The energy and creativity of youth. Wonderful.
It never crossed my mind for one minute while viewing the video that a bureaucrat would step in to force closure.
Good luck in your endeavours.
I so love it too and so unbelievable.
You are one creative artistic craftsman… HONGERA! This needs to be preserved. Where do we start…I’m on your team, and another ‘Whistlerite for Conservation’
What a beautiful retreat in the woods. It is absolutely a work of art – hoping you will be able to keep something so special.
it’s got so much character! what a beautiful thing you have created! it would be a shame for it to get taken down, unless you decided to move it somewhere more secure. i wouldn’t geocache it–leave it an enchanting mystery that hopefully any lucky folks who find it will cherish and preserve.
fyi–i’d buy the plans so i could build something like it at my folks’ place in asheville, nc, if they’d let me. i don’t have carpentry experience, but my dad could help me.
Love it. Hope the “powers that be” come to appreciate it for its artistic value and allow it to stay,….and for you to be it custodian.
What an amazon story! ‘Getting the most out of life’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. It’s a beautiful creation and I wish you and the Loft the best.
What an amazing story! ‘Getting the most out of life’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. It’s a beautiful creation and I wish you and the Loft the best.
Wow, you built a dream treehouse. How cool is that. It was my childhood dream to have a treehouse. But I wasn’t as handy, nor did I have a tree. So I settled for an indoor fort made of pillows, buckets and blankets. Thank you for sharing your creation!
Nice Pod Yo!
This is quite awesome. I can only imagine spending a week here on vacation.
You know what would be cool If there was a extensive trail that say went to the sunshine coast from whistler that had a cpl of these on it.
Very creative!!! Really fun, innovative, peaceful and beautiful! Well done – and BRAVO!!!!!
Fantastic! Marvelous craftsmanship and engineering. Love the design and creativity – If you ever need land of your own for another project, consider Lasqueti!
Brilliant dream come true….I hope the powers that be will allow your Hemloft to remain in situ at Whistler.
You’ve certainly both worked diligently and with passion to construct this…I hope you can go on to build many more creative structures.
I’m formerly a resident of B.C. and loved to see the areas forest once again…now live in the UK.
Thanks for letting me live out a childhood dream through you. I admire your crazy determination to go for it! Sure hope you are able to preserve it. You do beautiful work!
….so impressed not only with your single mindedness but your design ability and craftsmanship. The “egg” is such a perfect shape. Not only visually elegant but, as they teach in architecture school, structurally elegant as well. I would be very proud to have designed it. I hope you can save it but I also think that that the process may have been more important to you as a person than the result.
hi.fantastic.hey bro.im 38.ive been loving this province deep in my heart.my goal is to hike every trail,swim every lake,and if u talked to my friends live for free on crown land at the back of stave lake.your living my dream,good for u.i live for the trees,fresh air,animals,and water.nature freak.
Awesome story, elegant structure, beautiful couple, great spirit, sensibility and will. Destiny is yours. Always remember humanity.
Your creativity simply put a smile on my face…there has to be a way to save your hemloft…make sure you trademark your creation. What an inspiration for all of us. Good Luck
I’m super duper impressed with what you’ve done and how you’ve done it. I love the entire concept and I must say, my favorite part is the kitchen!!! I just love the home you built and the way that you went about it! Thanks for the inspiration of doing what you want and defying the odds!
With so many young people feeling trapped, and desperate for a “job”, you are an inspiration!
Stay cool, stay pure, stay an inspiration, and watch out not to be corrupted!
Amazing work mate, this is the sort of thing creative people can only dream about. I live in England and am contemplating a trip out just to see this wonder. I would love to cook a real outdoor chilli con carne in the kitchen. Then watch the wildlife as I ate it. Fantastic mate, really, just amazing.
This is an absolutely fantastic story and a wonderful creation and achievement! Amazing stuff. Good luck to you, I really hope you get to keep it!
Bravo! Fantastic achievement, well done.
i am interested in buying one,
pleace send me information,
I’m sure there’s always a way around rules!… You can’t just turn down something as beautiful as that!… Live the dream mate!
The time that you spend living in the woods will be the best of times you will always remember. Would like to know how you mounted the structure to the tree.
<3 this makes me happy!!
Love the house. Love the lifestyle. Love the eco-friendliness. Great initiative. Poor foresight. Build a house on land you don’t own? Retire at 26? You can only avoid reality so long my friend and then it’s going to be time to grow up.
When your young you can call yourself a car dweller and sport sleeper. Around mid-30′s they call it things like poverty and homelessness…sleeping on a park bench. It’s about the same time cute girls stop showing up to hang out too.
Fortunately, you’ve got something to pursue. Build it, market it, sell it. Repeat. Then buy some land, build it, live in it. And of course keeping building it and selling it. It also referred to as joining the rat race. There’s no way around it. Doing something that you love and believe in, can however, take the sting out of it.
We live in a forested private community in hilly western NC and I have dreamed of a treehouse in our woods. Your design is the best I’ve ever seen. If you ever put a plan up for sale I would very much like to buy one. Hemloft blends so beautifully, naturally and uniquely into its environment it would be a great shame if it is not allowed to stay there. Some of the commentors suggest great ideas; I truly hope one of them works for you and Hemloft.
This is an absolutely fantastic story and a wonderful creation and achievement! Amazing stuff. Good luck to you, I really hope you get to keep it!. What can we do to support your amazing creation?
i wanted a treehouse like yours it’s neat,cool,and great!
If it does no harm to he environment, why not let it stay as a tribute to what man can achieve in the wild?
That is pure engineering, genius, & art. You are the Michael Angelo of creativity and design. Great work. I wish I can built this house for my kids in our backyard, I will spend my nights there … goo luck
An amazing example of the beauty of living simply in the woods!
Living the dream! Good for you. Makes me want to pack in my job and venture into the woods
Great work!… Donate the materials that comprise the structure to the Royal house. As a rescue station for lost hikers, and then request that you be permitted to man it as an unpaid volunteer. Who knows perhaps there may even be a tax break for the candles.
Joel, you have built a very aesthetic tree house; however, I do have a few of concerns. First, the major problem I see with the design is that the six-point load-bearing supports are exerting a lot of pressure on the trunk of the tree at the base of the frame. Although the trunk in and of itself is quite sturdy, the delicate cambium tissue is just under the bark and only an inch or so away from the surface of the tree. The weight of the structure is surely doing damage to the cambium layer in this area. It could also be girdling the tree since pressure is being exerted within a tight ring. Second, with the floor of the structure attached to the bottom third of the frame, pressure at the top of the six-point frame is being exerted away from the tree. Consequently, over time the lag bolts can become loose and work their way out. This could cause one of more of the frame supports to suddenly peel away like a banana peel. Third, since you have attached metal to the tree, it will attract lighting even though the metal is not grounded. I am an arborist, so I’m speaking from experience.
You have a beautiful design, but I do not believe that it is best suited for a living tree. Anyway, best wishes and be safe.
bigboots is right; the tree will eventually die; if you care for the tree, you’ll have to dismantle your beautiful creation!!!
Reason: a tree needs to grow freely; a tree has feelings; that tree must be suffering right now!!!
A master piece, Great work!!!
That’s going back to nature … Good work !!
Angelo, from Italy
You are such an inspiration! Good for you for having the courage and vision to create this. Most people settle for too little and deny themselves the beauty and freedom that is within reach. I wish you all the best and hope you will never lose your capacity to dream, backed by self-belief and willingness to work for what you care about. All good wishes for a wonderful life! And pls keep writing, filming and sharing with all of us…
Why not just find another tree on land you can buy (or have donated) and move the tree-house? If we can disassemble a castle brick by brick and move it across the ocean to resemble it, I’m sure your “Hemloft” will survive a move to a new location. Good luck!
Take it down and rebuild it on a non-living support, like a phone pole, on your own land. I hope the tree survives the damage you have done.
What an awesome story and idea!
Where do you sleep?? I did not see any photos of your resting quarters.
This is awesome. It is wonderful, you are so creative and I am amazed by this structure. I wish you the best of luck keeping your ECHO FRIENDLY tree house in tact. It is a simpler way of life and something I envy. I would love to have something like that even if it was just for weekends and holidays. It would be my “escape pod” A way to shut out the world for a few hours. GOOD LUCK to you!
really nice i would really like,to purchase one of my own
I like that very much.
can we see some pics or a video from in Winter! or is it a summer treehouse only?
similar hse is built in Kenya near Nairrobi near mount Kenya and now turn into hotel as treetop Hotel.
Why can’t this can take shape of hotel by building more hse like this near your’s and became one of most beautiful place like treetop hotel.
I like your house and tearing it down will not help anyone but damage your innovative thinking.
Wow, really inspiring. If I had any skills at all, I would love to try my hand at building a little place to escape to. Thanks for the video.
wow! what an inspiration to hear your story. I wish you the best and i hope you will be able to save your hemloft tree house. I live in MD and would love to find out if you are willing to sell a blueprint of your creation.
When the lady came into the picture, I couldn’t help but think about what the bower bird does to attract a mate.
Do you think you may have some bower bird genes that became dominant??? : )
Fantastic. So many people know in their heart that you have done something great. Bravo for you and your generation! Fun!
Love your spirit and creativity.
You should sell the blue prints to people with a how to book. Then you would have enough money to buy the land. I wish you luck, and hope you get to leave it there, you look very happy there.
This is one of the best wooden houses i have seen!
I have forest in Finnland and You can come to build more such kind of houses to my forest.
Looks great, and I love the design. All the best in keeping it out of the governments hand. Any hopes of making the plans public so that others could build their own.
It’s beautiful :’)
It is awesome!!! I’m even from Saskatchewan…lol…..I would love to see it stay up!! Very creative!!
Try to buy the land the tree is on (about nine square feet)
What a great idea! This should be held up (and I suppose has been, now, in Dwell mag) as an shining example of architectural sustainability. Love the dramatic irony or juxtaposition of being nestled in wilderness over looking multimillion dollar abodes. Your footprint of 9 sq ft is where it’s at. Kudos my friend.
ASHIA HOTEP MURI :YES SO VERY COOL: THE TRADITION OF NEST BUILDING IS BEING KEPT ALIVE.. WELL DONE: WE ALL LIVED IN TREES: THEN CAVES: THEN THE ABODE MANY NOW CALLED HOMES: HERE ARE SOME LINKS FOR FUTURE INSPIRATIONS: YOU DID A GREAT CREATIVE SHARING: HAHAHAHA ON THE SO-CALLED QUEENS (STOLEN) LAND: BAMBOO HOUSE: http://tropical-treehouse.com/page1.html
Your treehouse is very good plus that kitchen is very organized (Nolan age 7)
The treehouse is well built and I like that at first I thought the tree house was on the ground but then I noticed it was actually up (Leo age 4)
We are thinking about building a treehouse in our backyard. Your’s is beautiful and is an inspiration. Good luck to you. (Mom age …)
Love it…hope the gov’t allows it to stay!
[...] only problem is, it wasn’t built on his land – it belongs to the Crown. Better known as HemLoft, the orb currently hangs from a precipitous slope in a stand of towering hemlocks, but is at risk [...]
great work ! try to keep it and enjoy it.
The Indians used the land and now they claim it is theirs – You use the land, its only fair that you are able to continue to use the land in a responsible way.
I admire what you have done.
From one fellow computer tech to another, the project came out beautifully, I do thoroughly enjoy the way the Hemloft integrates with it’s environment and how you used the natural resources to build it. I believe that if you would contact the property owner, and appraise them of your ingenuity, and offer to purchase the one tree or lease the tree from them, with the provision that they will provide you with access to the property.
And cross your fingers, I’m sure that the Hemloft would a welcome addition to the forest. Who knows you may be commissioned to replicate it at other locations throughout the forest.
Truly a work of art. It would be a shame to loose it. Can I get a copy of the plans? Outstanding work…..Cudos to you Allan
bigboots is right; the tree will eventually die; if you care for the tree, you’ll have to dismantle your beautiful creation!!!
Reason: a tree needs to grow freely; a tree has feelings; that tree must be suffering right now!!!
OMG ! The tree is suffering, I would rather see a tree being of good use than to see Joel suffering,he love’s Nature & so do we ! What about all those trees that are being brought down everyday. What’s up with that …1 Tree being put to good use LOL
Joel its very spirited to the forest. Hope they never find and destroy it.
We’re in 100 %
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!! Hope all goes well <3 Hope you'll get to keep your AMAZING treehouse!!!!
Get of the land, your squatting!
Squatting what ? he’s just trying to live like everyone else, what about people living on the streets,their squatting too ? what the street . I know there are lots of ????????? & lots of answers .To me he paid for his little cabin,he’s not disturbing anybody and it’s a cute idea,why have land there if you can’t do anything with it.God created that for our own use,and as such should be aloud to be used,Animals can well then so does Human Race …
Joel simply put i love it, i am in Jamaica i do not know much about tree houses but its absolutely magnificent, all the best …..
This is nice.
This is an awesome idea,I even say that more should be built to keep homeless people off the streets,we find nice comfortable places for Animals rights, yet we do sweet fck***l for the Human rights, TO LIVE IN A HOME be it in a tree or otherwise, it’s way better than living on the streets.What are they doing with those so called crown land anyway? While people are suffering ,and yes it’s not just CHINA … CANADA are in desperate need of land to live. Anyway hope it works out for the best, you go Joel..I’m sure you can come up with something interesting for everyone’s content. JEALOUSY will do no good whatsoever in this situation, common people lets stand together and find a smart SOLUTION
Interesting idea and design.
April 26, 2012 at 5:59 am
Yea, how did he attach it to the tree? thats probably what? 150+ year old tree? now with hundreds of nails sticking in it
I’d live off the grid in a heartbeat, but in Ont it would be alot harder than in BC. Love the tree house. Beautiful and hope you can find a way to keep it. Although you should have done a little homework of the land issue first, as you can’t just plop a tree house where ever you want or else there would be hundreds of them out there but now that you started this….DON’T tear it down and DON’T give up on it. Where there is a will, there is a way as you already know. You would need to purchase more land then just the tree & small area it sits on as to preserve the surrounding area before some day it all gets cut down. Try land lease, try convincing the govt to let you use it as a teaching tool for others (school kids, carpenters etc.) while keeping the traffic down as much as possible. Use it to teach the world again that we can live off the land while preserving nature and stopping urban polution & spral……I could go on forever but you get my point. Don’t give up…..you’ll think of something. Question, how the heck did you haul the material up the mountian? And it looks like it would leak through the slats if it rained? Or is it the egg shape that would keep it dry?
It would be sucha shame if they took it down. I vote that you should keep it! It’s amazing, cool, creative and artsy! I love it! If they’d be such assholes to take down a perfectly beautiful treehouse. The “autority/gov.” always have some reason to be unhappy about, they are just all greedy for money. PERIOD.
I would like one of these for my backyard. Good luck with your treehouse.
Maybe, you could sell the plans to your treehouse and offer a % of the sales as rent to live there. The government never refuses $. Also you could leave the house to the government after you pass on. This way the government can use it as a camper condo and charge a fee to use it. You can then be able to keep it during your lifetime without the gov. being too much of a pain. It ‘s just a thought.
That’s amazing, could you email me a guide to it, going to whistler next weekend. Cheers
What an idyllic spot and lovely treehouse. You created a work of art and hopefully it will be able to remain where it is. Now that you’ve let the world know about this amazing creation I hope you are not invaded by the curious hordes. I’m happy you shared but it might just be to your detriment. I wish you nothing but happiness an good fortune with this venture.
Wow… Totally came here and didn’t expect to spend over 30 minutes reading all 10 chapters of the story. I loved every minute of it. Your passion to get away from behind the computer screen reminds me a lot of myself, being a graphic artist and wondering if a desk is what I want for my life. I loved the movie “Into The Wild” and this somewhat reminded me of it. I have bookmarked this page, and I highly doubt i’ll ever forget about this.
You’re my hero!
So cool! Great video and amazing tree-house! Sure hope you get to keep it. Best of luck!
What a great event!! Would you like to move it to Costa Rica? We have plenty of land. I’m think a small colony of these.
And you could make it an installation instead of a permanent structure.
Great idea. Need help with this? Let me know at
this is art! quite amazing!!!
Above all, i’m sorry for my English, i don’t talk and don’t write very in English. I’m a brazilian student in environmental engineering the state of São Paulo, and I was impressed by his house and hia idea. I have 19 years and my dream was always to live in the woods. I hope one day get to do what you did. Congratulations for the work and the idea, if you can, answer in my email.!
You are amazing! The tree house should be left in tact, a tribute to the nature, man one with the forest.
This is wonderful. Please let me know, how I can help to keep it intact.
This is a work of sheer brilliance which should be advertised and promoted, not taken down.
what a great concept! awesome design and craftsmanship !!!!! congrats!
how inspiring to make cool things, just because!!!
sure hope it will stay up! and yes, i am a tree lover, a builder, and i think it’s very cool.
way to go, Joel.
Nice job! If the Government was smart they would make it an attraction with all the proceeds to save or enhance the park land. And let you do some special autograph tour dates. I’d pay to have my picture taken with you two and get a signed note book of the adventures about this journey Keep it real tree Houser. Enjoy our family loved the story. Leo
“Hang in there”
You are truly amazing creating this! It’s so beautiful.
We’ve visited Whistler many times and I envy you
I hope you can keep it, you truly deserve it! ( Love your video btw
Your work is just awe-inspiring and has be very influential. Keep up the amazing, breath-taking work. Your concepts are genius.
Consider the works of Andy Goldsworthy, who sculpts with leaves and ice and other temporary materials, photographs them well, and moves on to the next inspired work. It is o.k. to thanks the property owner and walk away: the experience, the inspiration, the story, and the relationships may be enough. The work is excellent. The tree and treehouse have divergent needs.
beautiful place and should be gave or at least sold to him and should defiantly not be tore down that would be a shame
You are just back to the begining of nature living.
Is a beautiful and well cutomize treehouse.
I really love to see it myself and have a firm hand shake with you.
Do you live there or is it just a clubhouse.
i would love to live in that thing it is so zen and you have no need to worry about annoying neighbors. I would just buy the land the tree is on but don’t tell anyone where it is.:)
Wow! Your vision is simply amazing! The hemloft is one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.
I find comfort and hope for the future watching young people like you doing remarkable, creative things. I wish you well and hope that the powers that be find a way to allow this beautiful work of art to remain untouched. Don’t stop creating, dreaming, working and questioning authority. Please let us know how this gets resolved.
That´s nice and beautiful Guy! Congratulations from Brasil!!
Wonderful!!!! I want a house too…. Congratulations!!!
I dont believe! Best idea! You are a real “green man”!
Congratulations, you make a life be more fun!
Cade a camo po, eu quero ver a cama…
Adorei; quanta poesia no seu sonho,Parabéns, Absolutely beautiful!!!
Great work man! Oustanding design and inspiring view that freshs the soul! I believe it´s a place where you go to rest and recharge your batteries, not you real living home. Wish you have all the luck on your project of keeping it and also achieve supporters for so. If one day I had money I want to have one alike! Best regards from Brazil.
It is so beautiful it made me cry to see something so unusual and done with such love.
Have my own spot picked out for my Hemloft on Public Land…this could start an International Movement? Think I got it figured out how to build it…but knowing where to get drawings might speed it up?
Now that I’ve watched as many tree-house videos as I could, I have to say yours is by far the most beautiful and functional looking for the space. Are you planning on marketing the plans? I agree with the International Movement, and I already have the spot (not on public land, though). As far as saving it, I thought Sandra Weissman gave advise worth looking into. The best of luck to you; hope you (or others based on your plans) get to build many all over the world.
inspired room in the view…
Great this treehouse,…very nice designed,..hope you can save it,…wish you positieve energie ,..been to years ago to Whisler,…did,nt see it haha,..succes most be ways to keep it.
Should built more of these clean eco houses,..hang more of these in the trees and you can rent them for visitors as well. greetz from Holland.
its a cool idea…
[...] http://thehemloft.com/videos/ [...]
Just saw the loft this weekend for the first time, truly inspiring! The level of detail is mind blowing! your web story is romantic! We humans need more creative adventures like this one. It can only makes this planet a better place to live!
great idea, beautiful blend of nature and home.
So, what happens when this tree grows? Are you nailed into the tree or netted rather? Should check out the tree walk in canada… the walk attaches to the tree with a noninvasive net and metal wrap; it also has much space for the tree to grow. You might run into some trouble with that one…
Hello Joel and Heidi.
Great to meet up with your project.
Even if a government is getting the ambition to remove it, you are unstoppable as many before you have also.
Thank you and greetings from Bill
Do you have plans of this beaty?
so cool! i’ve been dreaming of living in such a house .
Watching the video I bet you’ve been an avid player of Myst Very nice structure! Hope you can save it.
hey budy that tree house u made where is it that would be fun to find hope every thing gose we’ll for u good luck
seriously cool very stylish little treehouse. i hope you can find a way to keep & enjoy it. you may inspire many people with your ingenuity.
Lovely thing you did. Hope the world will leave you to your ‘peace’ of land.
Absolutely beautiful. I am from New Westminster, currently living in Ottawa, but this is a great reason to visit Vancouver
I am a tree worker. I keep fantasizing the idea of having and building a tree house to myself, for myself.
Thanks for your inspiration.
I am sorry I imagine after you made this public now the government will tear it down. But if we all moved to the trees and built tree houses then they would tax us there too.
Wonderful. Skip from Vancouver WA
ok I browsed the photos and story, didn’t see any mention of where you get electricity or what you do for water, drainage, bathroom etc. hmmm…..
well after seeing the video it makes a little more sense. That’s totally Rad, you guys RULE.
I wish very good luck to you.
Every kids dream to have a treehouse, and every adults dream to have a Hemloft!
This might help this is the site for mineral rights information in Canada. http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/minerals-metals/policy/legislation-regulations/3707
Cut costs this present year by donating the car to charitable organization.
Extraordinary design and idea. Whatever happens, at least it happened. Good Luck!
I think they should keep it up, even if it was used as a sight to view wild life, if not there then it should be moved to another park, where others can get to use it and see it, like lynn valley
It is a perch in one of Gods most beautiful gifts…
The sights and smells of fresh air natural cooling winds and they sway of the tree during the night, must be as close to Heaven as any mortal man can get with out crossing the lords great divide…!
No I am not a priest.. I just love nature and it inspires me so when I see something of beauty which does not intrude on nature as a eye sore…
Hey there. Today you reminded me that i am capable of creating my dreams. That i can manifest anything i want in this life. I really appreciate your inspirational story and beautiful way of telling it. I feel like after reading the website i know exactly what your authentic voice sounds like! What a lovely tale. I hope you are well and that the joy and adventures are endless. Thank you!
Just heard of this today in the news. We try to live a green as possible here in Burnaby BC. Your creation is AB FAB. STUNNINGLY beautiful! SAD its coming down. I wish I had heard of it before. I am no architect either I built this in my garden from recycled wood a just 4 shop face boards nothing comparable but it makes me proud and there is a BIG tall strong pine tree standing behind it. It looks very tempting now to create a Penthouse up there:-) http://visualsenses.smugmug.com/Nature-in-its-many-splendors/My-KALE-forest-and-organic/13595110_78GD5j#!i=1583178020&k=mJDtZNv I hope you are getting a grand new place for your creation. The music name Mausi sounds very Austrian like myself. Thanks for the Inspiration!
I think you should talk to the people that owns the land your treehouse is on and ask if you can buy it because……..
I LOVE YOUR TREEHOUSE ITS SO MAGNIFICENT.
sorry about my writing im norwegian
Hi. My name is Thatielle. I’m from Brazil.
I am a student of architecture and performing research found this house.
This house is amazing. Congratulations on creativity, really different. Loved it so much.
Note: Sorry for my english.
Cool, that’s even a very nice idea
I lived in whistler last summer but never got the chance to visit the hemloft, which at this point I do regret. i’m going back next week for the summer again and was hoping to finally have the chance to make the visit. I quickly found out from my local friends that they have already taken it down. Truly I think that is a tragedy and that it was a perfect little secret in the woods. Although i’ve never been to it I have always been very interested, constantly hearing stories and seeing pictures. The Hemloft and the Trainwreck are the first two spots that all locals love to boast about and take people to visit. It was a part of Whistler, at least in my eyes. It wasn’t harming anyone or anything, but they just couldn’t turn a blind eye to it which is a shame. anyways i’m sorry to hear the government had to get rid of your contribution to the land, but what is certain is the Hemloft will be a part of Whistlers past. It will go down in history!
Do u have blueprint. I would like to build one.
I am so sorry to hear that you might lose your Hemloft because of it being on Crown land… It will surely be a great loss…
Are you interested in building a new one in my property?
Just happened upon your story in a serendipitous fashion as I was sitting in my drab, inauspicious cubicle at lunchtime at a medical devices R&D facility in SoCal and was amazed by your treehouse and inventive lifestyle in the spectacular wilds of B.C. where I have often visited. How lucky you are to have had the imagination and gumption to embark on this adventure. I wish you great luck in your efforts to keep it rolling…. with media exposure you no doubt will garner much public support, but that is a 2-edged sword, unfortunately, unfortunately. Keep the blueprints and go into business!
Hi im thimm can I bring my girlfriend to your tree house, I can do a perfect marriage proposal…
