Those are tree houses built by adults for adults. Possibly to get away from their kids.

Good idea with the sea levels rising the way they are. Of course if the parents REALLY cared, they'd stop destroying the farking planet.

The new man cave. Harder for women to access.

That's a puzzling statement.

Yeah not one of those was a tree house for kids. Besides a true kids tree house is meant to be build by the kids themselves (not contractors.)

Well, the G.R.O.S.S. headquarters kinda looks like a dump now.

Or maybe they will feed the kid, cloth them, shelter them and get them educated.

But no, apparently they need treehouses now.

They also teach them to skin a buck and run a trout line.

For some reason I read the headline as "bury their kids in a treehouse" and I wondered how expensive that was...

I was fortunate enough to grow up in a wooded area and have a father who was both absurdly competent and maybe a bit less than responsible. I'm not seeing a 500', insanely dangerous zipline over a creek, so I'll take my childhood treehouse over any of the ones featured.
/ why yes, my childhood rocked... Why do you ask?

Parents who care about their kids will teach them to build their own goddam tree house

I really enjoyed the Swiss Family Robinson-esque ones.

No trees.

When I was a kid my dad and granddad built a wooden platform in a wooded patch of our backyard. Me and a couple of my friends dragged a plastic play house up there. Man, that was a great treehouse.

Do we know each other? I had my first 47 or 58 homosexual experiences in just such a tree house.

I decided I didn't like tree houses.

But you really took to the dick?

I might bang a dude too if I could hang out in that farking mirror cube.
 
2013-11-28 08:38:18 AM
Oohhhhhhhh NoooooooooOOOooooooo!
I had a horrific nightmare when I was a kid, set in a huge tree house, and that pic of the inside of the mirrorcube is the EXACT room where all the bad shiat happened. Forgot all about that dream until now.
Nightmare nightmare fuel. No sleep tonight.

Parents who care about their kids will let the kids build their own treehouses.  (Assuming they have the means to do so.)

10/10. Great troll! That post made me want to just slap the shiat out of you.

Except none of these are kid's treehouses. All of them are for rich adults having a second childhood.

Wasn't going to mention it, but my 2nd high school G/F (who was evidently trying to send a message to my dumb teenage self) invited herself over to climb up into my treehouse.... Wearing hotpants.

(bites lip, puts on shades)

I did eventually get the message.

Built for the kids. Soon to be my office once they move out. And for the record, if the house is not structurally supported by one or more trees ONLY, it is not a treehouse. It's just a house with a tree in it.
Ours is suspended between four trees.

My father cemented in 4 posts (about 16' tall) when I was 14.  Then left them there for 30 years, and chopped them off at ground level.  But compared to some, that was luxury.
