The rest of the world is catching up to what you’ve know for a long time: Treehouses aren’t just for kids any more. And really, were they ever? As a woman who lives in a treehouse full time with her family says in this very cool report from The Atlantic, “We as adults, we just work really hard, and we need to play.

Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins.
