Centrally located within the heart of intown Atlanta, Peter Bahouth, former Greenpeace executive director and current executive director of the U.S. Climate Action Network, built a series of houses in the trees next door to his all-glass modern home. Peter is an environmentalist whose love of nature and memories of boyhood treehouses inspired him to create this grown-up fort in his Atlanta backyard.
After buying the vacant wooded lot next to his home and spending the next seven months planning and constructing, Peter brought his daydream to life using mostly spare lumber and old windows that had been thrown away or bought at antique stores.
Suspension bridges connect the three components of the treehouse, which include a living room- which has enough seating for 6, a bedroom- which includes a platform bed that slides out for a better view of the tree canopy, and a deck- complete with hammock and enough seating for 10.
And the whole thing is available to rent at $275 a night!
