Not in your typical English country garden…

At Big Yellow, we’re all about valuing the space you have and where possible making more of it. However, we can’t all boast about having acres to our name and for some of us, finding time to spend in the garden is more valuable than having it in the first place.

For those of us who don’t have the space we desire, there is a solution. Add another room to your home and make the most of your outdoor space with a treehouse.

We’re not talking the type where you have to crouch to get in and only kids are allowed. These tree houses are for adults.

We’ve pulled together a few of our favourites to help inspire you with your own tree top creations.

The Birds’ Nest

With it’s rough exterior but beautiful decoration, this circular treehouse is one you won’t want to fly the nest from. Unless you’re looking for a Swedish getaway, in which case you can find out more at Treehotel.

The Mirrorcube

You might recognize this next one from George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces – and what an amazing space it is. The cube is completely covered in mirrored panels allowing it to reflect sunlight and blend in to its natural surroundings. Surely this one makes you reflect on the potential your garden has.

It may not be unidentifiable but it definitely looks like a flying object. Built for avid alien fans, even the inside is decorated with space paraphernalia. Beam us up Scotty.
