We have made really great progress since the last blog, as you’ll be able to see in the video. All the floor decking is in and there is great progress on getting the decks completed. We have to finish putting the deck joists in before we can start putting up walls. The guys had to use the crane with a bucket to lay down the floor joists, which would have been very difficult to do with the walls up. Take a look at the time lapse below to see the day they were working on the floor joists of the main deck.
Since the last video, we also had a long meeting with our interior designers, Eric Mandil from Mandil, Inc. I included a small clip of our conversation with Eric and Sean from Mandil about the finishes selections – from bath and kitchen tile and countertops to the wood flooring and ceiling beams and everything in-between – including the furniture.
The good news is that, with the exception of a couple of pieces of furniture, everything is selected and will be on order soon. They did a great job with the finishes and furnitures selections and think you and our future guests will love how it all works so well together and is comfortable and cozy. We’re excited for the day, about 5 months from now, when we shoot a video and write a blog about the day the furniture and accessories are installed!

While we wait for the welders to get the steel foundation for our Zen Treehouse competed (ETA – Thanksgiving), I thought I’d share a video from a Vlog on Youtube that I subscribe to called Kara and Nate (1.84MM subs).
They travel the world and do an amazing job of documenting their travels and have awesome video editing skills to make their vlog very appealing and fun to watch.
I was wiped out after a day of work and thought I’d spend some Youtube time and this vlog of theirs popped up. So, I took some time to watch and loved it, so wanted to share it with you all. Consider subscribing to their vlog and also my ZenTreehouse Vlog on Youtube. I’ll be posting a lot more videos as soon as the foundation gets completed and they start framing. I want to be sure to document each and every step of the process for you.
I found the treehouse on Airbnb. It’s in Hood Oregon and you’ll see that it’s super cute, but also a bit rustic (note the lack of wifi, cell service, and running water). Check it out on Airbnb here. It’s going for $275-$289 a night and is booked until mid February. For some reason, I guess people LOVE treehouses!
In the meantime, until we have some more exciting build video to share with you, enjoy Kara and Nate’s Treehouse Getaway video!
We are closing on 2 beautiful acres of land on the side of a mountain in Bailey on Monday October 23, 2017 – let the journey begin! Well, this journey began, as it often does, with an idea. If you want to learn more about how this journey began, click the Continue Reading button below…
