Treehouses have been making the news lately with Deek Diedrickson’s “Wolfe’s Den” and Joel Allen’s HemLoft. Across the pond, the ecoPerch is a new tiny house design based on a treehouse from the Blue Forest company in the U.K. This beautiful structure is designed to fit into the natural surroundings while still offering enough space for four beds, a dining and lounging area and a bathroom and kitchen.
The ecoPerch is 36.5 square meters (just under 400 square feet) and contains a master bed with built in storage, a bunk room, a toilet and shower room with a heated chrome towel rail, a living area with a wood stove, a kitchen with a breakfast bar and a small deck with storage for firewood. It’s highly insulated, made of sustainable materials and can be fitted with an off-grid energy system and composting toilet.
The ecoPerch was designed to be used as an alternative to caravan (trailer) and timber lodge accommodations on public or private lands, and is compliant with the U.K. Caravan and Mobile Homes Act. The structure can be delivered, assembled and put into place (on a platform or on the ground) in about 5 days.
Blue Forest is an award winning company that designs and develops inspirational and sustainable buildings and specializes in the construction of luxury treehouses. They also provide accommodation for the hotel and leisure market. The ecoPerch was unveiled for the first time at the Grand Designs Live exhibition in London this May.
