It's a process Mon, Jun 15, 2015
I came across an article about Foster Huntington who built this cool tree house in the Pacific Northwest. He's writing a book (The Cinder Cone) and there's a short video about this as well. While the finished product is amazing, Foster didn't just build this in 1 weekend. It was a result of "...thousands of hours of hard work." This included selecting the proper materials, countless design sketches, meticulous notes, utilizing the assistance of friends (some of whom are carpenters), and relying on others that contributed by learning on the fly. It began with Foster's dream and vision, but it required a lot of effort. Of note, the first image is a snap shot of Foster's daily schedule. Even if you're building a super rad tree house in a two hundred year old enormous tree, it's important to create and adhere to a schedule. I encourage you to check out this book and video to see the process of how a unique vision was transformed into a reality.
