Enjoy The Outdoors From Above
Every once in awhile I come across something that is really interesting and unique. This is one of those things that I couldn’t resist showing you. It’s not tiny house related but it is all about relaxing and enjoying life.
A fellow tiny house enthusiast posted a blurb on his blog about a hanging tent that a young man in England has invented. It caught my eye as there are so many possibilities for it.
It’s a tree house! A tent with a pulley and a solid floor.
This is camping on a new level.
You can pull it up into a tree and have a room with a view. Spend the night safe from wildlife while enjoying a wonderful view of your surroundings. Let the slight swinging lull you to sleep. Wake up in the morning to the same overview with a different light. Just thinking about it is appealing and soothing.
Another possibility is enjoying a lovely picnic with a view. Imagine choosing an area that overlooks beautiful territory, then enhancing your picnic with the ability to place yourself in a position where you are able to see the entire surrounding landscape.
That not only sounds wonderful for a picnic. It would be a wonderful place to spend a night or two as well.
Complete enjoyment for kids and adults.
How does it work?
With regards to the mechanics, apparently it the pulley system is based on 18th century ideas, the flooring in made of pine and is lightweight, the tent is made with very durable and weather-proof canvas, and the frame is strong steel rods. The entire contraption can be broken down and easily packed into most cars.
You may be wondering about weight capacity. They say it is capable of holding up to 1 ton. Wow!
It’s a simple idea with huge possibilities.
