The Adult Three-Part Treehouse: Figure 1

The Cinder Cone isn’t your average treehouse.

The expansive property (by treehouse standards) was built by Washington artist Foster Huntington in Skamania County over the course of a year with the help of about 30 of his friends. He began last June with his friend Tucker Gorman.

There are three basic structures, all of which are connected. Two are smaller treehouses with fully-functioning electricity and plumbing. One is octagonal and the other has a more traditional rectangular layout. Both are also completely furnished, with a bed, built-ins for storage, a small library and other household necessities (read: a Mac desktop). Connecting these two structures is a small, octagonal deck with an arch bridge branching from one side, and a roped bridge from the other. At night, both walkways are lit with string lights for safety.

The enclosed homes also protect visitors from the cold Washington winters, but given it’s scenic location, Huntington has also put windows into the home, allowing him to peer out.

Shortly after beginning construction, Huntington and his friends added a full-sized skateboarding bowl and wood-burning hot tub on the ground below the treehouse. He’s documented the entire process and is using Kickstarter to release an instructional booklet.
