When Phil moved to Oregon decades ago to be near his children, he began dreaming about building a treehouse or two. Once his children had grown, he indulged the fantasy, and with the help of friend and neighbor Michael Garnier (see our video of his Ewok village style treesort), he began to build up.
Today, he and his wife Jody have three self-designed structures: the Japanese-inspired Shiitake, Tudor-style Calypso and the Cottage (a cabin in a tree). They rent them out by the night (they’re fully plumbed) and the couple dreams of building yet another (Jody wants it to feature a skylight and to call it the “Sky Palace”).
