This 'Half-Tree House' Is A Unique Upgrade To Traditional Log Cabins

By Brian Spaen

The traditional log cabin has received a brilliant refresh in the form of a treehouse. JacobsChang Architecture has created the Half-Tree House, located the Beaver Brook Preserve in Sullivan County, New York. Even better? The majority of the materials needed for the home were on location, and it was constructed with a strict budget of $20,000.

Isolated in a 60-acre remote location, the Half-Tree House is 360 square feet and rests on a steep hill. The name comes from being held up by trees surrounding the property, which contributes to lifting half the weight. The other half is distributed to the sonotube footings at the other end.
