“This Washington state treehouse is called “Temple of the Blue Moon.” It was built by author and treehouse enthusiast Peter Nelson. It is part of Treehouse Point, the Snoqualmie Valley retreat where Nelson and his wife, Judy, host private events and overnight guests. ” -From the Denver Post

“Something draws us to nature, into the woods and up into the trees,” says Peter Nelson, author of numerous books on the topic including “Treehouses of the World” (Abrams, $35). He is a partner in the Seattle construction company TreeHouse Workshop. “Since the days we were hunting and gathering, it’s always been a natural response to retreat into the trees for protection,” he says. “When you get right up against that bark, it’s very comforting, rejuvenating, and you get a new perspective.”
