Imagine walking out of your back door onto a cable bridge that extends to your own personal tree house. So went designer Anthony Wilders pitch to the former owner of this McLean (Va.) home. The Indiana Jones-inspired bridge leads to an octagonal 16-by-16 ft. office/entertaining space, replete with a fireplace, electricity, sound system, and Internet connection.
