The geometry of the Healdsburg Treehouse is striking and how it combines in a five-level treehouse will keep your mind working in a meditative setting. The Healdsburg uses reclaimed Douglas fir in its construction.

Douglas fir is great for woodworking, like with some of these outrageous cat furniture pieces.

Copper Nest

The Copper Nest connects to an existing deck at a home outside of Milwaukee and includes reclaimed wood in half of its construction. It also uses steel awnings that were given a rust patina that blends into the background of the wooded area.

Most of the time we’re trying to get rid of rust in cool ways like with electrolysis, but this look catches the eye.

Over in the UK, specifically in Cornwall is the Lost Meadow Treepod, which seems just suspended in air. It’s built with recycled materials and uses cedar siding. The Lost Meadow is 20 acres of ancient oaks and meadow. It also sits near a babbling river for a complete outdoor experience. Check out a gorgeous Victorian screen house that uses cedar shingles.

The HemLoft

Joel Allen’s treehouse project, The HemLoft, didn’t necessarily begin as a project that would harness reclaimed/recycled material but it turned out that way after he sourced material from Craigslist to help complete the floor of his project. The HemLoft is located in Whistler, British Columbia and is now part of the Medicine Trail and a stop during guided hiking and snowshoe trips.

Get a look at some of the coolest camping gadgets that work perfect for hiking trips, too.

Sensational Spaceship

Talk about getting creative when it comes to working with recycled material. Jonathan Juhasz took an old grain silo he found on Craigslist to begin building this treehouse. He added in a repurposed galvanized steel water trough for the doorway and included fiberglass bench seating that he repurposed from a bowling alley. One of the cooler features is a slide, a perfect escape hatch for an emergency landing.

Repurposing items can be a rewarding task, especially if you can create some additional space doing it. Check out some creative solutions to more storage with 13 repurposed items.

You can imagine you’re flying through space in one of the spheres from Free Spirit Spheres. Luna is the latest treehouse Free Spirit Spheres has rolled out.

Redwoods Treehouse

The Redwoods Treehouse north of Auckland in New Zealand is a getaway from another galaxy. It’s available to rent for private parties and events but comes with a price tag of $3,000. It’s supposed to look like a chrysalis or cocoon and was built from sustainable pine and poplar.

Pinecone Treehouse

This treehouse in Germany might not conjure images of aliens right away but its architecture resembles a rocket in a sense or a spaceship. The hairpin leg design certainly make it unique, plus it stands in a pond, which would be really great for fishing.

This might not exactly qualify as a treehouse but this observation tower in Germany provides an unparalleled view of the Black Forest. Visitors say you can see for scores of miles all around. It rises more than 130 feet in the air and features a slide that will return you to the bottom. It’s located just outside of Stuttgart in western Germany.

This treehouse at the Tree Hotel legitimately looks like a UFO and is called that exactly. It’s certainly reminiscent of homes like the Futuro house and others that look like an extraterrestrial lives there.
