A triangular treehouse sketch-daydream plan (micro-office, guest hut/cabin)

Although not an incredibly space-efficient shape/design the picture is angled/skewed in a bizarre angle- and doesn’t represent the idea so well- sorry. This WILL be kinda cool once built though….very different, fun, and cozy….

 ‘Was messin’ around the other night for a client, and came up with this little design, one I’d like to build for MYSELF! Its base is a simple, reinforced, 8′ or 10′ equilateral triangle….the side-wall framing is simple 2×3’s….

It needs several tweaks, and some reconfiguring, but it would work…..and would appear as if “floating” about three or four feet off of the ground…..

The huge clear roof would face a campfire….it could sleep two, or serve as an escape office or meditation/yoga house/tiny treeshack….

Note: The few roof/poly-roofing supports are not shown….also, the side-roof/wall support joists will also extend and connect to the tree, serving as reverse knee-braces/supports as well (in addition to the cables).

Nice design. I see wheels at each of the three points of the triangle for (or maybe just the two base points) to make it a portable and permit free structure.
