This Incredible Two-Tier Treehouse Has Its Own Skate Park And Wood-Fired Tub

Foster Huntington is a name that you may have heard once or twice before. Especially if you are into Volkswagens. In 2011, he quit his job in New York, bought a VW Synchro and hit the road. He coined #vanlife and wrote the book on living in your vehicle—it’s called ‘Home Is Where You Park It‘. After three years on the road, he decided that he wanted a more permanent place to hang his hat. “I have always loved treehouses, so I thought it was time to build a big-boy one,” he says. “I wanted to make a place where my friends would want to come hang.” He didn’t build just any treehouse, he built one of the most amazing tree houses EVER! Check this thing out.

Both structures—the workshop and an octagonal cabin with bunk beds—celebrate the style of minimalist living that Huntington honed in on with his truck bed. Each, roughly 200-square-foot, building is simply designed, strung up between two huge Douglas firs, and connected by a 25-foot span bridge.

The whole project cost him a little over a $100,000 dollars to complete. Not too shabby for a dream home with a view like that.

Huntington found land near where he grew up on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. The plot of land was close enough to Portland that it was easy for his friends and family to visit, but deep enough in the woods that it felt very remote. A life away from the city has its health benefits, that’s for sure. Some of his dreams didn’t make the cut (a crow’s nest was a no-go) but for the most part, he ended up with a grown-up version of every kid’s dream treehouse.
