Treehouse #R3 – Paradise Retreat House
Our client wanted a guest house and getaway spot for their teenager with a large deck for entertaining poolside. Palm trees are not suitable for large treehouses, so we used metal supports from the ground and built near the trees instead.
We found some unique and interesting materials to give this treehouse some extra character. The countertop is a live edge spalted maple piece from a local hardwoods supplier. Some smaller pieces of matching maple were fashioned into corner shelves and side tables. The rope trim fits right in near the pool. We sourced some reclaimed barn siding for the exterior of the treehouse. We love the sliding barn door inside and the skylight.
Plumbing and Electric Options for Treehouses
Our client wanted a full steam shower to make it feel like their guests feel like they’re at a spa. This location could not accommodate sewage lines, so we installed an incinerating toilet and incorporated a leach field, and stocked the treehouse with organic biodegradable products. For the electric plan, it was important to use antique bronze finishes on all fixtures and hardware to tie in with the doors and windows. The bathroom and kitchen have area lights & switches, the ceiling fan has a room light, and there are three outdoor lights to guide your way after a swim.
