There are some days when I would be satisfied with a secret lean-to made from a few discarded wood scraps, just to have somewhere to escape for a little peace and quiet. But this beautiful hidden tree house would be my dream come true – a secret retreat up in the branches of a towering hemlock that is at home in the pages of Dwell Magazine. The story captured my imagination. Joel Allen hiked into the woods around Whistler and built himself this secret hideaway on crown land. The design is artistic and stunning, and the fact that it is a hidden secret is magical. I can picture one sitting up in the trees in my backyard. Although then my family might not see me much!
