bamboo treehouse

An informal blog version of my formal website. The intention is to add news and some insight into my ongoing predilection for bamboo and the hooch. With these raw materials and conceptual abode, I have evolved a paradigm for living lightly on this Earth. It is quite the adventure, so, why not share.

Hill Hooch Treehouse

Recently completed, ( July, 2010), this 10' by 10' kit uses salvaged small diameter Douglas fir and cedar from a forest fire that swept the hillside the year before. Poles need to be harvested within 1-2 years of a fire before they are rendered unusable by bug infestation and rot.
The hooch features a split pole stairway and ladder, and railing. Situated amongst old Oaks with a nice view, a perfect place for sleep outs.
