The Design Process

Preliminary Design and Site Plan!

January 27, 2018

We met with our architect today and we went over the preliminary design. Prior to this, I spent a fair bit of time compiling a design ideas document of images and ideas that I really loved (some tree house, some not). Then we had a preliminary design meeting where we discussed the ideas and thoughts we had around the vision of the treehouse. Today is the first draft of that vision. We moved some things around and discussed changes and ideas, but it’s a really amazing start to the project and we’re super excited to share with you. Let us know what you think! We love the direction that we’re taking this, but would love to hear what you think.

Land Survey and Topography is Finally Complete!

January 4, 2018

Hi everyone,

I haven’t posted anything lately because, well, we’ve been doing nothing but waiting on this to get done. I’m so happy to say that the Land Survey and Topography just arrived (after a six week wait)!

The survey is required by the architect in order to start his work. We have to know where the treehouse structures will be placed so we can then provide this information to the well drilling company and septic system engineer to begin their work.

The architect now has the survey and is starting. I’ll post his progress as he provides us with drawings, plans, etc. Things should start moving on this now..thankfully! I really had hoped we would be well into the conceptual design by now, but we are where we are.

Happy New Year everyone! It’s going to be a great 2018!
