210 Sq. Ft. Modern Treehouse Tiny Home

This 210 square feet modern treehouse tiny home by Baumraum architects.

The reason it was built was for a group of scouts in the area so they can camp and stay in it on the almke camp site.

Before you even get up to the cabin using the staircase you notice there are two micro structures separated by a common outdoor deck area.

And each one is slightly different in terms of elevation (see what I mean below).

Ready to go inside? It all starts with the staircase that you can see in the photo above. Once you’re up you’re greeted by the common deck which combines both structures that make up the treehouse tiny home. Enjoy below…

The lower structure is used for sleeping (we’ll go in there in a minute so you can see the bunk beds).


The upper structure is used as a kitchen and eating area. See more below.


And the bunk bed room across the deck below:

    I think that is really cool. I can see living in a place like that.

    boy scouts????? very very rich troop of boy scouts! seems like the boy scouts should build their own structures, at least partially, to earn merit badges.

  • Cody Boyce July 12, 2014, 4:45 pm

    Incredible! We have so many trees here on the ranch that we could build an entire village.

  • Glema July 14, 2014, 7:50 pm

    Building TH’s might be another “project” the boy scouts could earn badges on if the troop leaders know how. Maybe the Boy Scouts of America could spare the expense to send the leaders to the workshops. Just a thought. hehehe
    Thanks Alex, ya know I love this! This kind for stationary times or “home port”
    and TH on wheels to go when one wants or needs to go. Thank you and God bless you all. Lord bless our boy scouts always!

    Hey, Alex! I know that you get bombarded with loads of emails so hopefully you’ll SEE this post.

    There’s a BIG brouhaha going on in Chicago today, with a meeting of the City of Schaumburg zoning committee tonight over a TREE-HOUSE and future regulations!

    I thought it might make for an interesting future topic for you; here’s a link, there’s tons more on the web. http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20150506/news/150509142/

      Thanks Cahow I’ll check that out!

        Hey, Alex. I’m SO happy that you found my link. The topic was on EVERY newscast in Chicago, so it was a Hot Topic. I thought it might make for an interesting article on your blog. 😀

    With everything still up in the air about my tiny house (the county says they aren’t pursuing the appeal of the variance we were granted, but the renegade codes department – aided and abetted by the interim administrator – went to the state in a Hail Mary appeal), I see multiple battles but ultimate acceptance facing tiny homes. People have to have a place to live!
    Tree houses? Oh, yeah, why not? It is time to throw away the cookie cutters and embrace diversity and originality!

  • Jane May 11, 2015, 11:17 pm

    This is super nice but I worry about only wooden beams holding up the whole thing.

    • Eric May 11, 2016, 5:51 pm

      All “stick built” (I hate that American term) houses have wooden beams to hold them up! What is your issue regarding standard building practices for a “treehouse”???

    I love treehouses. This is gorgeouse and it would tower over my bitty pinyon pines. Darn, I expect I should go for the hobbit house. Code though…

    Boy Scouts really came up since I was little must be nice to call an architect to build your club house.

  • Gabriella May 11, 2016, 3:15 pm

    So between the rusting of leafy branches, the birds singing and the life that vibrates aroud us I see that every day here reborn, and peace stimulates me to true joy.

  • Greg Hughes August 23, 2016, 10:21 am

    That is the nicest treehouse I’ve ever seen. Those are some lucky Boy Scouts!
