Not-So-Big Treehouse

Perched on the edge of a hill midway up into the surrounding tree canopy, the sound of the river below is a constant presence. A steep switchback driveway delivers the entry between the house and garage. A cedar bridge leads the foyer. The living areas and screened porch perch above the cascading river. Corner windows expand the views on the compressed site. Cedar decks cling to the rear of the house, and another bridge connects the screened porch to the edge of the hill. Clad completely in knotty cedar, the house is in and of the woods, with a treehouse quality. The interior continues this theme with variegated bamboo flooring, laminated pine stairs, and tension cable guardrails.
