Status: Built


  • Custom single-family home

The Carolina Treehouse is located on a hillside above Lake Santeetlah in North Carolina. The Treehouse is a 2,800 sf home with an additional 1,100 sf of outdoor deck area.  The aesthetics of the homes are a hybrid of an Appalachian farmhouse and Adirondack styles. The design of the house features exterior cedar shake siding with cedar board-and-batten accents. Extensive use of hand hewn timbers were utilized in both the interior and exterior of the home. A key feature of the home is the dramatic cantilevered deck that floats 70 feet above the lake in the tree canopy, with open railings to maximize the spectacular lake views.
