Weekend Cabin | The Hemloft

The Hemloft is a self-funded secret creation by Joel Allen, a Canadian software developer-turned-carpenter. The beautiful egg-shaped house is a tree-house retreat in Whistler, Canada.

Joe also created a website for "The Hemloft" you can read his interesting story, from becoming a carpenter, to finding the perfect spot and tree, and funding the project. source
