Overhead Hideaway: A Secret Suspended "Indoor Treehouse" Reading Nook

One of the great joys of childhood is the feeling of traveling a thousand miles away through the pages of a book. While everyone appreciates a cozy corner, I think kids really love a special, secret spot, created just for them, where they can disappear into the pages of a book AND disappear from the world of grownups at the same time. If you agree, then you too will recognize this project as book-nerdy-kid nirvana...

Two lucky kids, Manon and Shaw, get to enjoy this memorable (smart space solution!) hideaway that their parents dreamed up for them. 

"Monica and Austin built a creatively designed reading nook they call the “treehouse” for the kids. The space, converted from attic storage and brightly lit by a skylight, is accessed only by a wooden ladder that is stored horizontally on the wall in the hallway below it." 

And, if all of that isn't cool enough, you can add in plenty of points for the fact that the house around the treehouse was built for a ship captain who incorporated plenty of his travel treasures into the design. 

Double rounds of applause, both to parents who remember what its like to be a kid and to kids who love books. May lots of fun hours be spent in the treehouse!
