The Treehouse Empire Begins
Austin Treehouses didn’t start in Austin. But in a galaxy far, far away thanks to four 9-year-old friends and their fascination with Star Wars. With tools and nails ‘borrowed’ from their dad’s stash, found scrap wood, branches and wooden pallets they built an intergalactic spaceship a dozen magical feet in the sky near their homes in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Rob reminisced, “We used knotted sheets to climb up, and we took turns being the captain, crew and manning the laser guns.” Adults had a hard time seeing past the pile of junk nailed in a tree. But the boys had imagination. Imagine that!
A few decades later, Rob put his own 6- and 9-year-old to work helping build a much fancier treehouse in the family backyard. This was no Millennium Falcon, nor was it a mismatched pile of imagination either. When the elementary school his kids were attending asked for an auction donation, the kids suggested a treehouse. Rob agreed to a modest scaled-down version. The bidding went through the galaxy. The ultimate winning family had a special needs child who loved trees. Rob and his crew built him a safe platform treehouse much to everyone’s delight. The family that came in second in the bidding immediately contracted for their own backyard fortress. And Austin Treehouses was born. Like the inspiration for it all, the sequels keep coming. And they’re bigger, fancier and more extraordinary!
