The treehouses at The Cinder Cone were designed and built for college friend Foster Huntington. After years of nomadic traveling as a photographer, Foster decided he wanted to establish a more permanent home base to enjoy with friends and family. His family's property near the Columbia River Gorge already had amazing views. By building up in five large Douglas fir trees we were able to create an even more interesting experience that fulfills childhood dreams. Many helping hands contributed to the success of the six-month project. Although the future will likely see thoughtful additions and improvements, the current village consists of three sets of stairs, an observation deck, a rope bridge and two 200 square foot treehouses.
