It all started in May of 2017 as we began our search to find a piece of property in the Northern California foothills to build a home for our eventual retirement. We happened to come upon 10 beautiful acres of forest with an amazing stream running through it that was for sale. Having spent the remainder of the year researching the property and envisioning how we would use it, the purchase was made in January of 2018.
Learning about the amazing healing effects of the forest on people, especially those suffering from depression, anxiety and other traumatic issues we decided to share our land with the community. We would build a retreat for challenged kids to come as our guests to enjoy nature and feel the healing effects of the forest.
Our non-profit that we would call ‘’Our Healing Forest” was born and our vision of a treehouse retreat was on its way to becoming a reality. Being fans of the treehouse shows on TV, we decided that our own home would be a treehouse!
We attended the World Wide Treehouse Conference in October of 2017 and again in 2018 where we learned of the fascinating treehouse building industry. We met and have become friends with many of them and some will be on our crew for this project.
