Secret Lair is the treehouse build by Joel Allen, the former software developer. The tree-house design features an egg-shaped structure called HemLoft. Built on government-owned crown land in the woods outside of Whistler, British Columbia, this unique house showcases the beautiful craftmanship of salvaged wood and other available materials claimed from Craigslist ads.
Young designer Joel Allen, who lives in this fantastic treehouse part-time, created a romantic, intimate, functional, and comfortable living space with built-in benches, shelves, and a wooden deck. The house is decorated with meaningful photos and sentimental objects, offering a true retreat in the woods.
