Mind-Blowing Modern Tiny Tree House Built with Reclaimed Materials – FULL TOUR

This epic 2-storey log tree house is built around 9 hemlock posts and salvaged and that Mike, the builder, saved for years before starting this 3-year project. The upstairs is a complete living area with two sleeping spaces, a kitchen, living and dining room, and a bathroom. Downstairs is an outdoor lounge area and a full indoor bathroom. It’s a really unique space and we’re really excited to give you a full tour!

The foundation of the treehouse is 9 hemlock posts that are on footings anchored to the bedrock and the treehouse has 420 square feet of heated living space. The home is on the grid for electricity, and it has it’s own well and septic system.

It was really exciting and inspiring for us to meet Mike and his partner Gen, and to hear the story of the tiny tree house cabin idea came to life after visiting and treehouses on their travels, and they made it a reality by building with scrap and leftover materials that Mike had collected from job sites for years.

We hope you enjoyed touring it as much as we did!

Thanks for watching!

  1. LoL, by the title you put on photo before the video description, it reads when you say “self-built” that the treehouse has built itself. Great build and video!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ive always loved the concept of tiny homes but never found a print I was in love with. this is the missing piece.

  3. The house is so relaxing… 🙂 I love the house.. I’m a nature lover and it is so cool and romantic when you two talk about something relating to nature with someone.
