Vacation Home

This sylvan tree house is part of a two building family retreat on the bank of the Russian River in Guerneville, CA, where it is designed to stand above the flood plain. The smaller cottage offers the owners a cozy escape from their adult children and many grandchildren who stay in close proximity, just across the deck, in the larger of the two structures. The project is situated for the family and guests to take advantage of river views, shifting sun patterns and outdoor activities. Materials were selected to be low maintenance, as well as durable and cost effective.
