Tree houses are currently in vogue, with hotels, leisure parks, stately homes, private estates and celebrities choosing to invest in timber treetop and lodge constructions. Even the downturn in the housing market didn’t diminish demand, as householders boosted the value of their properties by building a tree house in the garden. Their popularity is attributed to a growing interest in environment issues, especially sustainable living, and a desire to be at one with nature.
