Waterhout Treehouse

A small treehouse in the meander of a mountain stream, this treehouse is intended as a place to experience a simpler, more quiet life. Hanging from five separate blackwood trees, the treehouse is clad in a technique based on traditional Japanese craftsmanship – the shou sugi ban method.

Untreated pine planks from a nearby sawmill are charred, scrubbed, and treated with oil – becoming water, fire, and insect resistant.

Completed: 2019
