This episode by Kirsten Dirksen reminds me how important it is to stay creative and open minded while finding solutions for your tiny house build. The owner of this tiny home on stilts found a unique solution to meet building codes for his project: it’s an observation tower. Fred Reid, owner (and airline exec), calls it The House of Tree because it has no electricity or plumbing but it does have an elevated 360 degree view of the trees.
When you’re here, you feel as if you’re one with nature and this allows you to easily escape from everything else. The humble home is approximately 200 square feet and is surrounded by the epic redwood grove. Scott Constable, of Wowhaus, helped design and build this awesome little cabin in the air, who you’ll get to hear from if you watch the video below.
Fred Reid is currently president of Flexjet and has also served as an executive at Delta Airlines, Virgin America, and Lufthansa. This little cabin is his off-grid escape. It sits three stories above the ground in West Sonoma. Let’s go check it out, shall we?
