Magic Treehouse

img_1880Building Blocks is very excited about this new aspect of our design/build business.  We would love to build you a custom playhouse or treehouse that will provide you and your loved ones a special place for years to come.  Our structures are built to last, both in timeless design and construction.

One of 5 design/build teams participating in the Storybook Playhouses benefit for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital,  Building Blocks and Introspecs worked hand-in-hand to create the feature playhouse: The Magic Treehouse. Built in the round, on salvaged round cherry-wood trunks above an 8′ round platform, it stands apart as a creative space for children. We worked tirelessly and tediously to create finely notched joinery and a rather sophisticated experience in a timeless, modern tree-house.

Climb up the ladder to find a skylight with a view to the eco-roof, or let your imagination run wild, sketching on the chalkboard walls! The semi-circular balcony adds a fun surprise and enriches the connection between indoors and outdoors.

Introspecs along with Building Blocks designed the tree-house, including conceptualizing it’s round floor plan, balcony and railing, and eco-roof + hatched skylight. Introspecs also designed the minimal interiors, with circular carpet tiles on the waterproof painted floor, large-scale chalk drawings and alphabet magnets on the magnetic walls.

The Magic Treehouse was on display at Bridgeport Village Shopping Center for 3 weeks, beginning July 23rd, 2010 and now resides at a lucky owners riverfront home in Keizer, Oregon.

It is also featured in the December 2010 issue of NW Renovation Magazine.
