Cabin in the Woods

The triangular shape of this serene, 250-square-foot cabin gives it a post-modern feel in the middle of popular vacation spot Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. 

Enjoy the View

The deck that wraps around the treehouse faces one of the many lakes of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, with an unbeatable view. 

Sherry's Treehouse

With a 50-foot oak tree as their main support, B'fer and his crew created an imaginative forest getaway for families at Sherry's House, a nonprofit childhood cancer organization in Worcester, Massachusetts. 

Now Entering Paradise

The boarded walkway up to the treehouse provides a safe entrance for patients and their families.  

Indoor Playground

Designers and volunteers outfitted the inside of the treehouse with colorful accents and details like inspirational carvings. 

Not-So-Cookie Cutter

The custom "cookie" pathway underneath the treehouse is made of thick oak and provides another hangout spot for the kids at Sherry's House. 

Double the Fun

This sleeping pod just off the banks of the Mississippi River in West Memphis, Arkansas, is one of two structures B'fer and his crew crafted for their client.  

The High Life

A suspension bridge takes you into the living area of the sleeping pod, a satellite extension of the communal kitchen pod nearby. 

Sleep Soundly

The bedroom of the sleeping pod is lofted above the living area for a seriously high up view over the banks of the Mississippi River. 

The Main Attraction

B'fer's client has had grand dreams of a treehouse community with several sleeping pods and this communal kitchen pod he began fixing up more than a decade ago for all to share. 

A Real Outdoor Kitchen

This communal kitchen, the centerpiece of a future treehouse community, comes outfitted with reclaimed wood counters, oversized windows and new appliances. 

Neighborly Envy

Next door to one of treehouse legend Michael Garnier's treesorts, this O'Brien, Oregon, "tree-loon" constructed out of nine trees lives up to some very high expectations. 

Giddy Up

Situated on a ranch in southern Oregon, the Boltz family took inspiration for their treehouse from old school western saloons. 

Wining and Dining

The 400-square-foot deck is the perfect spot for wine tastings from the ranch's vineyard.

Welcome

The details throughout, like these saloon-inspired swinging doors, drive home the inviting western theme B'fer and the family were going for. 

Wild Wild West

Western decor like antlers and warm colors help the family's dreams of tree-loon come to life inside. 

Light a Fire

The wood-burning stove and river rock wall bring both decorative and literal warmth to the living area inside. 

Grab a Glass

The custom-made bar top and stools are the perfect centerpiece for the tree-loon's intended wine tasting gathering spot purpose. 

No Sour Grapes, Here

This 300-square-foot treehouse in Blue Ridge, Georgia, is situated on a family vineyard. 

Up for a Nap

The inside of the living space includes 9-foot ceilings in the back to accomodate the sleeping loft.

Room with a View

The lofted bedroom provides an incredible view of the vineyard and plenty of rustic style and space for friends and guests to the vineyards. 

Dinner's Served

The vineyard "treesort" includes a fully functioning kitchen, electricity and heat for those mild Georgia winters. 

Space-Age Shower

There's also top-notch plumbing to accomodate the treehouse's bathroom with this very modern shower. 

Take a Lift

Why bother hauling cases of wine from the vineyard up the walkway when you can have it done for you? The electric dumbwaiter is strong enough to hold at least one B'fer. 

Branch Out

Using an unbelievable 11 branch penetrations throughout, this is the definition of a modern day dream treehouse. 

Eco-Friendly Hygiene

The outdoor shower on the house's deck includes drainage that directs the water to the garden below. 

All in the Family

The living space of this treehouse on a historic farm is furnished with pieces made by friends and family, like a custom-made swivel table and personal carvings. 

The Great Outdoors

The 500-square-foot treehouse is a little more deck than house, with plenty of room outside for things like hammocks anchored by repurposed railroad ties.

Sleep Tight

The upstairs sleeping loft houses two beds, providing plenty of room for overnight guests for generations to come. 

The Best Addition

Tucked deep within the redwood forests of Gerneville, California, this treehouse addition to an existing cabin makes the property the ultimate treesort. 

Straight and Narrow

Redwoods are the ideal trees for building a treehouse because of their massive size and straight stature. This addition is constructed around two redwoods adjacent to the cabin. Bonus: The deck includes a pedal-powered projector for movie nights under the stars. 

It's All About the Trees

What could be more perfect than details like this for a treehouse among the redwoods? 

First Impressions

The detailed carving on the front door to the treehouse gives you a solid idea of the artistry to expect inside. 

Centrally Located

The living room quite literally centers around one of the two redwood trees the house is structured around. 

Perfect Weekend Getaway

An Old Town, Florida, family of five was seeking a hangout spot with lots of character and hidden gadgets. And that's exactly what they got. 

Just Keep Climbing

The tree climbing wall is just one of several bonuses for the family that will grow with this treehouse. There's also a fireman's pole and a secret trap door. 

Upcycling

The coffee table in the bright and open living space was constructed out of a stump situated directly in front of the treehouse's staircase that led to a few stubbed toes. 

Finishing Touches

An entryway shelf made out of cedar logs brings both character and function to this weekend treehouse getaway.
