Former IT nine to fiver Joel Allen was tired of the day to day grind. The 26-year old’s solution was not to take a vacation but to build a secret hut deep in the woods of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The result is the Secret Hemloft Treehouse, an egg shaped retreat in the middle of the forest. Considering Joel was working in secret the finish is totally magnificent, an almost head to toe wooden structure that features a back to basics list of amenities. Unfortunately you cannot just build anywhere, so there is now a danger that the Secret (not anymore) Hemloft Treehouse will be destroyed.
