In this tour, Chris shows us a tree house he built and designed as an off grid retreat for a women in North Carolina. This tiny house in a tree has a sleeping loft, is made from salvaged and recycled materials, and also has a wood fired “redneck hot tub” next to it. A spot like this could be ideal for homesteading in the future too.

Cool hot tub!!
Absolutely Goregous house & spot
Please update when interior is finished. Love the zebra-wood look on the trim boards! A micro-hydro power source would seem ideal for your location. Only criticism, and I hate to criticize anything about what you’re doing, and in spite of your warning at the beginning, it’s not a treehouse if no trees are involved in supporting the structure.

@The Capable Carpenter official Says the owner of an eco-park with real tree houses and an acquaintance of the tree house master.
That is epic, we are selling our Off grid Homestead and when we move we look to build a few things. I still do not know if I can get a hot tub, but I know I will not have that view.
what state is this in?
@relaxshacksDOTcom thanks for the info. the area looks beautiful. i grew up in Ohio and we had lots of hills and creeks like that. now i’m in east lansing, michigan and this whole lower peninsula is pretty flat and boring.
That little ladder looks like it could be a seat with a fold down table or desk in front of the window.
Wishing have one off-grid
What a awesome place, thx I enjoyed this, have a great day
put in a potty and fridge and I’m there!
The view from the loft is priceless.I will take this over any beach.
I just subscribed
Elena Haldy thanks Elena!
I’d like to recommend nixing the vining over the arbor over the front door. It will be a spider magnet and you really don’t want to be walking thru webs getting inside and worse, getting a spider on you and not knowing where it is. Better to do on a non-entry location. Trust me.
Hinge the shutters so you can fold into a triangle shaped art piece when wanting privacy.
