Tiny Tree House with Hanging Bridge Makes Off Grid Living Fun!


Hey everyone! Mat here from Exploring Alternatives. In this video we’re taking a look at this amazing treehouse with a hanging rope bridge and a deck perched up in the trees. [Music Playing] On our channel we’re always looking for tiny living spaces alternative living spaces and dwellings and this is by far one of our favorite ones so far. This treehouse is fantastic because it really feels like you’re up in the forest part of nature. To get up to the treehouse is this first set of stairs, then you get to the first platform that’s up in the trees and then on to the hanging bridge. Over here is the main deck that’s attached to the cabin and here we move on to the hanging bridge again and it takes us to the little deck up in the trees which is just an awesome hangout area. [Music Playing] So when you first come in here is the kitchen this is just a 2.5 gallon jug of water that drains into this handmade wooden sink and this drains into a grey water tank at the bottom of the cabin. And then under here there’s just two more containers for extra water. This is just a little propane cooktop. You probably noticed that there isn’t a fridge. If we were to live here I guess we would probably set up a bigger solar system so that we can have even just a tiny little fridge to keep food a little bit longer. And for the light that’s just one 40 watt solar panel on top of the roof. This is the main dining hangout area. Got a nice natural wood table here and also a little couch that’s also pull out and can turn into a bed. There’s a nice big wood stove here and that’s how this place is heated up in the winter and there’s lots of big windows all around and it really gives you a good view of the trees and makes you feel like you’re part of nature. [Music Playing] Back here we have the the ladder for getting up to the loft this one’s great it feels really really secure and safe and this is really simple it’s just a little L bracket that’s screwed onto the top this is the loft it’s a pretty spacious loft I mean I can’t stand up but I’m pretty tall but you could easily put a queen-size maybe even a king size up here and get some storage on one side feels really nice up here especially with the window in the front here it’s it’s quite cozy. Over here is the washroom it’s, it’s a very basic setup so it’s just a bucket style compost toilet and the shower is also really simple it’s just this, this little bag so you fill this up with water, leave it out in the sun, this heats up in the sun or you can also heat up some water on the cooktop and get it to the proper temperature and what you do is you basically just pump and build up some water pressure in here and there’s just a little hose and you shower with this.
