18 of the Most Unique, Strange, Unusual Houses Ever Built
13.Free Spirit Spheres, Vancouver Island, Canada
Invented and manufactured by Canadian couple Tom and Rosy Chudleigh, Free Spirit Spheres are built for customers worldwide who want to experience life in a suspended treehouse. They are equipped with plumbing, electricity and insulation and rock gently in the wind as they are suspended on a web of rope. Sleeping in one is supposed to be a really relaxing experience.
The design imitates sailboat construction and rigging and each sphere is accessed by a spiral stairway and short suspension bridge. Made out of wood or fibreglass, Free Spirit Spheres are outfitted with a double bed, a settee, coffee table, sink, microwave, fridge and cupboards (everything except a bathroom and toilet – which is on the wishlist for future design improvements).
