My Treehouse Inspiration

treehouse inspiration

I found it!! ….This is the inspiration shot that is helping me get my head around the upgrades we plan to make to our tree house this year.   Until I saw this, I didn’t realize how much ‘foundation’ plantings could add to a tree house — a place with no true foundation.  Also, in the spirit of cost effective and simple solutions, I love that this house really doesn’t have walls — just bamboo shades and breezy curtains that can be brought in for the winter.   We are discussing our roof architecture but I am so excited that we all agree that this is just what we want and that is a huge achievement for this family of four with widely differing opinions.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I love this treehouse! Do you have the original source?

    Rochelle, where on the internet have you seen this? I have searched and have not come across it anywhere?

    • rochelle on January 25, 2012 at 10:05 pm

      Judy — I wish I knew where it came from (so odd that I didn’t credit the source, I don’t usually do that) but I have seen it all over the blogs. If I can come up with the source, I will share though.

    I know this is quite an old post now, but the original source was so easy to find, that I felt obliged to post it here. Here’s the link: Here’s the ‘secret’ to finding an original source (it works almost all the time). Right-click the photo and click on “Save As”. It will try to save the photo with it’s original name. In this case, the original name is “outdoor-structure-1009.jpg”. Then, just Google that name. Oila! It came up in the Google search. On this particular photo, I didn’t even have to right-click on it…I just hovered over it and the original photo name showed up on my screen. You’re welcome! 🙂

      Hi CottonCandi –

      I really appreciate your note and tips….but the source you list is not correct – while this picture is posted at the link you mention, it is not Joseph’s image or project – this image is posted in many many places online. You are right, there are ways to find the original of this – and I’ve tried them all – so far to no avail – but if I turn it up successfully I will certianly post it here. Best – Rochelle

    I know it’s many years on from your original post, but do you have photo’s of your interpretation of the photo.
