Max and Tatiana had the dream to build a tree house on their property on Whidbey Island off the coast of Washington, and decided to get permits and permission for everything to save future headaches.
Two flights of stairs take you up to the deck off the front door. There’s a living/kitchen/half bath on the first floor, and up a ladder is the loft bedroom with full standing height. The couple built the home around the trees, making sure not to cut anything down in the process.

Couple’s Totally Legal Tree House DIY Build
If you are looking to take a creative tiny house vacation in the San Francisco Bay area I think you’re going to love this tiny treehouse cottage.
When you drive up to the property and park your car you’ll see there is a small cottage on the ground level and that’s where the kitchen and bathroom are located.
Take a short walk up and go up the stairs surrounded by lush greens and wild flowers to the charming tiny treehouse that’s 30 ft up in a 150 year old oak tree.
The owners originally built the treehouse 18 years ago for their children. Now they rent it out to guests using Airbnb.
From the deck you can enjoy the San Francisco Bay sunsets from the tree tops.
