A Free Spirit House is a tree house for grownups. Invented and manufactured by Tom Chudleigh, each house is a hand-crafted wooden sphere that is suspended from a web of rope. The house seems to hang from trees like a nut or a piece of fruit. To enter a Free Spirit House, you must climb a spiral stairway or cross a suspension bridge. The sphere sways gently in the breeze and rocks when persons inside move.

Free Spirit Houses may look odd, but their design is a practical form of bio-mimicry. Their shape and their function imitate the natural world.
