Sometimes as you grow up, the things you loved as a child lose a little bit of that spark and are a little less magical. But not so with tree houses. Tree houses only get cooler. The only thing cooler than having a domicile all to yourself is having it up in a tree. The tree houses on this list are the absolute coolest that have been built in the world.
Some of the tree houses on this list are large enough to be hotels, one was made out a plane, and some are even part of larger treehouse communities. However, all of them are intricate and incredible feats of engineering and construction. These aren't the scrappy little structures you and your friends built as kids.
Come relive your childhood, (or get some ideas and build your own!) and cast your votes for the coolest tree houses on the list below.
