Lofted Forest Home: Organic Curves & Natural Materials

Nearly a decade in the making, this structure by Robert Harvey Oshatz is much like a tree house – lofted toward the top of the canopy around it – only bigger, grander, more complex and curved than most any tree house in the world. The perimeter of the structure is pushed out into the forest around it, curving in and out to create views as well as a sense of intimacy with the coniferous and deciduous tree cover.

Tree House Plans - How to Build a Backyard Tree House

It's a common-sense rule of treehouse construction: Make it lightweight. So I felt some stirrings of anxiety when the stocky, bearded sawmill owner pulled up to the house with a flatbed trailer stacked with oak timbers. Full of water, densely grained and smelling like bourbon, the rough-cut framing lumber I’d ordered spanned 18 feet and looked like bridge supports. As we offloaded the first 2 x 8, each of us taking an end in hand, I smiled doggedly to mask the strain I felt. He peered over the garden fence past the lilac bushes, and politely asked, “What kind of treehouse are you building?”

One thing was certain: It wouldn’t look much like the rickety aeries of my childhood, hammered together out of whatever construction scraps and packing crates we neighborhood kids could scrounge up.

After hiking the trail up the Bavarian Alps foothills from the small town of Hohenschwangau (nearby to Füssen) I discovered a real Cinderella Castle- the magical, Neuschwanstein Castle.

Neuschwanstein- The Real Cinderella Castle in Bavaria Germany & ...

Bavarian King Ludwig II dreamed up this castle in 1868. King Ludwig was a long-time admirer of the 19th century German composer, Richard Wagner (pronounced Vagner) and much of the castle was inspired by his operas including my personal favorite, Tristan and Isolde. Walking around the castle without a tour guide is prohibited. So, I got my ticket and waited in line for my number to be called- much like waiting for your number at a deli counter. But the line moved fast and soon… …I was in.

The castle amazingly survived despite heavy bombing during WW 2 in Bavaria. In the Throne Hall, under a Byzantine modeled chandelier is… …an intricate mosaic floor. Miss Design.
