Treehouse weekender

Posted by Quin  |  Posted: 27-Jan-2016

This cute treehouse is nestled in the treetops at Rye and is hand made from natural timber products includng polished timber floors, bespoke baltic timber kitchen, and western red cedar weatherboards. 

The occupants enjoy a connection with nature living up in the canopy with the local bird life.. see the TreeHouse Article by Sam Landy, 24th Jan, 2016. "-built by Mornington Peninsula designer Quin Wyatt in 1998 and occupied since- as a weekender".

The original brief was to design an affordable small cottage suitable for a couple or small family made from natural timber and to sit comfortably in the treetops, so the task was to haul heavy oregon beams and framing timbers up the hill by hand to build the frame which proved to be very difficult but rewarding in the end.The kitchen was made on site using baltic pine for benchtops and cupboard doors.All the timber windows were designed and positioned to maximise framed views of particular boughs in the canopy.
