Rustic, Modern or Bedecked in Buds, These Treehouses are Rooted in Great Gesign

Is there any child out there who doesn't long for a personal little sanctuary — a private place to call his or her own? The treehouses featured here are built out of various materials and in varying configurations, sizes and shapes. Some have their feet firmly planted on the ground, while others have trees growing right through the middle. Despite all this diversity, they do have something in common: Each one is going to bring out the kid in you.

Doug Abbott of Village Builders says that safety was foremost on his mind when he took on this project, which sits among a small grouping of cedar trees. "I wanted it to be safe for children of all ages, and it was built so that a deck surrounds two sides of the building with a railing, allowing them to play inside or outside," he says.

In a nod to the dumbwaiter systems of the past, "We also extended the ridge of the building out over the deck to allow for a rope and pulley system," Abbott notes, "so that the children could haul their toys in a basket from the ground up to the deck and not have to carry them up the steps."
