Ever since he roused us with his thought provoking The Burning House project and inspired us with his impassioned photography book Home Is Where You Park Itwe’ve been wildly envious of Foster Huntington’s life spent on the road. And even though he recently decided to settle down, we could only assume that his new home would be modest, simple amongst nature and of course – sick as hell. Foster and his friends spent six months building a tree house on his family’s property on the Columbia River Gorge in Washington. Two small houses, each about 220 square feet, are nestled in a cluster of five large Douglas fir trees and connected by a curved staircase and bridge. With an outdoor hot tub, goats and a skatepark, the Cinder Cone makes us all wanna dream big and live small.
