The Hemloft is a self-funded egg-shaped treehouse and was spawned by Canadian Joel Allen.


Formerly a software programmer, a premature retirement plan forced him into carpentry. His Hemloft hangs on a precipitous slope, in a towering stand of hemlocks, about a five-minute walk from the nearest road.

It is certainly an awesome creation. It is incredible what can be born out of an elongated vision and a will for the spectacular. The Hemloft’s organic beauty will leave many an individual in awe.
