When thinking of treehouses, the first thought is often of childhood adventures and this is exactly the inspiration behind the construction of Sir Cedric’s Cedar Treehouse. The owner and builder, Scott, chose this magnificent cedar tree for the base of his treehouse as it was a tree where he and his son spent many a day playing and exploring as his son grew up. The house has been built to last, so plenty of new memories can be made with this tree at their center.
Sir Cedric’s Cedar Treehouse took 2.5 years to make and this is because such care was taken and thought put into how to construct it authentically, with a great deal of consideration for the tree itself, yet with a wonderful finish. The goal was to craft something that Scott’s family could enjoy while thinking forward to the potential of opening it up eventually to the public and it is now available to rent through AirBnB.
The fantastic tree that is the main pillar of Sir Cedric’s Cedar treehouse has not been drilled into or damaged in any way during the construction project. The treehouse gently circles the trunk of the tree, with space left for the tree to continue to grow over the years. A large, rubber seal hugs the tree where it enters into the house through the roof to make the house as water-tight as possible, though if there is a really heavy storm then of course, due to the rugged nature of the bark itself, there may be a little water moving down the tree trunk. This adds to the authenticity of the building and really makes residents feel as though they are at one with the forest during a stay.
Sir Cedric’s Cedar Treehouse has been built, decorated, and furnished with recycled material, salvaged goods, and the odd item bought from a flea market. Some of the decors even extends into the surrounding trees, so guests know they are in for a unique and incredible experience on arrival! Rates start from €156 per night and this treehouse can be booked through AirBnB.
