The HangOut is a 2.9 meters diameter housing module designed –by Vancouver-based Tom Chud– to be suspended from a tree. It comes with a double bed, counter, table, bench seats and storage lockers. Four attachment points on the top and four on the bottom carry the weight of the dwelling. The spheres are made of laminated wood with the outside surface covered with fiberglass, and best of all, it is finished like a fine yacht.
Now the Robinson Crusoe note: Access to the sphere is via a suspended spiral stairway (wrapped around a tree) and short suspension bridge.
The spheres will also be available for rent in the future.
