Is this what the homes of the future look like? We can’t say for sure, but while this spherical treehouse appears to come straight out of a sci-fi film, it’s actually one of three spheres located in a coastal rainforest on Vancouver Island.

He built the sphere structures, the unique space-saving furniture, as well as sculpted and cast the bronze hardware for the doors and windows. These spheres are so popular that they’re almost completed booked year round.
