Luxury Tree Houses Galore
I used to dream of owning a home with a tree house style fortress around the perimeter and guard towers at each corner. For some reason, that dream hasn’t come true yet. But apparently, it can!
Here’s a cool Forbes article on the proliferation of tree houses and some neat personal experiences.
“These are fantasy cocoons,” limited only by a client’s imagination and budget, said Wenning, whose projects start at $30,000. “One client wanted to hit golf balls from his tree terrace, so he had us design a tee platform with removable railings.”
Building at such a high level is not without challenges. Bees, raccoons, falls and wind sway are all part of the job. So are swings in public perception. After Romero built a crow’s nest tower last fall in a 160-year-old fig tree on a posh street in Santa Monica, neighbors worried they were being spied on. “I had to add an elaborate thicket of sticks to one side,” Romero said. “The memory of childhood troublemaking dies hard for some people.”
