Shortly after arriving in our new home in Oakland CA this week, we wasted no time and dove head first into our newest project, this rad dual-level treehouse for a family located near Topanga State Park in Los Angeles CA.
The two platforms will be encircled by vertical slats, and accessed by the classic rope ladder to trap door entry. It will feature not only the large porthole window on the open upper deck that you see here, but also several small round portholes on the lower deck, so that the kids will be able to peep out from their covered play area during inclement weather or when they just feel like hiding out.
The structure will be composed mainly of Forest Stewardship Certified kiln-dried Grade A Douglas Fir, steel hoops, and of course, supportive cables used to safely anchor the house.
More details and renderings of the final design to follow!
