Reasons to Invest

Over sixteen years, O2T has built 85 glorious treehouse structures around the world that have been celebrated in design publications and mass media alike including HGTV and NBC News
O2T’s proven, popular, and proprietary building system — a result of our extensive and diverse treehouse construction experience — makes designing, constructing and finishing treehouses extremely modular and efficient
We are expanding our reach by designing a worldwide network of rentable treehouses via a franchise business model called Treewalkers

The O2T Revolution

O2 Treehouse Commercial Inc ("O2 Treehouse", “O2T”) builds intoxicating treehouses that bring people back to nature in unique and beautiful ways. We’ve built over 85 treehouses that have been featured by too many TV shows and news outlets to count! We’ve seen a tremendous amount of support for our beautiful creations — that’s why we’ve decided to find additional ways to scale our growth and connect more people with nature. 

gif


The company was originally founded as an LLC focused on the build and design of treehouses. In 2019 O2 Treehouse LLC was sold to O2 Treehouse Commercial Inc, which is now looking to expand the business line and launch into the hospitality market with the Treewalkers brand. As of September 2020, we have begun construction of the first Treewalkers destination, started building our team, including a strong and diverse advisory board, and lined up numerous potential locations. We are poised to expand into the hospitality market and capitalize on the ecotourism and home-sharing markets with the Treewalkers franchise network. Take a virtual tour of one of our future designs below!




*Rendering of future Treewalkers Glamping Treehouses


In the long term, we have plans to develop corporate-owned residential housing developments.


The Problem


We believe that humanity has never been less connected with the natural world, and we are all suffering the consequences

In our lives and work, we have witnessed today’s world to be singularly isolating. We see more people finding themselves disconnected — physically, emotionally, and spiritually — seemingly than at any other time in history.


O2T knows that many struggle to forge this lost relationship with the natural world during their busy day to day lives, and therefore, people turn to travel to reignite this sense of connection. The ecotourism industry, often a solution for those looking to renew their sense of connection with nature, was valued at $265B worldwide in 2018 and is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 14%.


We believe this increase in demand for ecotourism generates a need — Treehouses — as a perfect means for people to reconnect with the natural world. However, the economics and practicalities of treehouse ownership are naturally limiting. 

The Solution


Reigniting that lost relationship with nature… at the scale of an entire forest

O2 Treehouse builds exhilarating feats of architecture with the express purpose of reigniting the lost relationship between humans and nature. Our houses have been customized for each of our customers and are entirely modular to provide even more unique experiences.

gif

Moving forward, we believe that Treehouse rental through franchised, modular structures is the solution allowing popular access to these elevated experiences. The Treewalkers franchise allows people to easily create treehouses for rent — from a single unit to an entire treehouse village. Treewalkers does it all. Our modular design provides everything for the nature host to have beautiful glamping treehouses designed for the modern ecotourist using our state of the art technology.


gif

The Market


A perfect storm of increased demand for ecotourism, home-sharing, and wellness

While the home improvement industry grows at over 5% per year, homeowners are placing an increased emphasis on engineering wellness into their homes. We’ve already designed and built 85 custom treehouses that serve this category.


For the ecotourism industry, which was valued at $265B worldwide in 2018 and projected to grow at 14% per year, we believe we offer the ideal product for both potential franchisees looking for a unique opportunity to invest, and for consumers looking for a chance to get away from their fast-paced, concrete-filled life, and enter a more tranquil and beautiful world.

Furthermore, short-term lodging demand and home-sharing services are taking up ever more market share, reaching $23B in 2018. This is a great sign for both our treehouse owners and franchisees which can capitalize on the ecotourism trend by renting out their structures.


We believe the existing reputation and recognition of O2T together with the potential reach of Treewalkers can make a serious dent on this $265B worldwide industry.

Our Traction


Over 85 treehouses created with press features around the world

To date, O2T has designed, structured and built over 85 custom treehouses for customers throughout the United States. Additionally, O2T has a current backlog of over $1.8 million in custom treehouse contracts (60% in the initial design phase, and 40% under construction) for clients throughout the midwest and western US.

gif

We’ve made renting treehouses financially viable

O2T closely tracks our custom treehouses from the perspective of their rental and lease. For those treehouses available for rent, we have seen a 70% occupancy rate with average customer/consumer reviews of 4.68 stars out of 5. 


Additionally not only do people want to get away, but home improvement spending has grown remarkably since the beginning of the pandemic. Our beautiful treehouses couldn’t be a more perfect location to do just that.

What We Do


Using the latest in innovative structural design, as well as old-school craftsmanship, we build awe-inspiring custom treehouses

Treehouses are no easy feat. In the past, we worked diligently to find the perfect location, tree, and structural design. With this, we created some of the most beautiful treehouses the world has ever seen.

gif

However, after dozens of builds, our founder Dustin realized he could create an entirely new foundation platform for a treehouse to produce an engineered one-size-fits-all design that can be modified based upon the unique install location: The Tetratruss. Our technology finally allows for the wider evolution of treehouses by creating the possibility for lower-cost units. We’ve also developed technology to expand on a tree’s real estate, creating elevated platforms that fit into the natural location.

The Business Model


We design and produce treehouses that can provide income for homeowners and inspire a reconnection to nature for inhabitants

Current Revenue Stream:  Each of our custom treehouses generates anywhere from $30k to $500k in revenue depending on the project. With our costs ranging from $15k to $250k, we are able to recognize a gross profit from each build. We’ve mastered the build of luxury treehouses and are constantly finding ways to reduce our costs with state of the art technology and materials.


Future Revenue Stream:  With our future Treewalkers franchise, we will generate additional revenue with our franchise fee and income expense. Franchise owners will be able to finance the build of a Treewalkers location — giving them access to a property that can generate passive rental income. For us, the cost of the build will be covered and we will then generate revenue by charging an annual royalty fee.

We foresee there being two main stages to establish this franchise. These stages refer to our current plans in development for the future and may be subject to change:

  • Initial Stage: Although we do not have an existing network of franchisees, we plan to establish this network early on by waiving the initial franchise fee and using AirBnB as the renting platform — allowing us to more easily build the first 15 locations.

  • Growth Stage: With a more established network and proven results, we will then enable our franchise revenue model. We will also release an O2 Treehouse renting platform for exclusive access to these beautiful locations.

*The above information is a forward looking statement of the company. The offering materials may contain forward-looking statements and information relating to, among other things, the company, its business plan and strategy, and its industry. These forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs of, assumptions made by, and information currently available to the company's management.

How We Are Different


Our work speaks for itself

We believe our unique vision and creative spirit truly set us apart. Another thing that gives us our edge is the fact that our years of experience have prepared us to solve design challenges in ingenious ways that our less experienced competitors cannot.


We’ve also kept ahead of the game through our ever-advancing design strategies, like the Tetratruss, the modular treehouse foundational design system that both the Treewalkers Glamping Platform and the Equilibrium home are based upon. 

gif

*rendering of Tetratruss technology

But most of all, after more than a decade building custom treehouses, we’ve built a trusted brand that has found respect throughout the treehouse community.

The Vision


Diversify our projects into hospitality and residential development

Our next focus for our company includes our plan to launch into the hospitality market and capitalize on the ecotourism and home-sharing markets with the Treewalkers franchise network, as well as to continue our core competency of building the best treehouses in the world using the same modular building system.

In the long term we have plans to develop corporate-owned residential housing developments using the Equilibrium Home System. These will be situated on large 100-200 acre parcels of land and focus on establishing co-housing communities based on the same modular building system as the Treewalkers platform and are in the development stage.

OUR LEADERSHIP


Our combination of unparalleled know-how and genuine passion is tough to beat

O2 Treehouse was born in 2006 when Dustin Feider built his first geodesic structure 50 feet up in a Poplar tree in Pewaukee, Wisconsin. He continued with O2 Treehouse to inspire people to reconsider how we can coexist more harmoniously with nature. He is now world-renowned for his designs — his work has appeared in over 100 design publications — and he has become a sought after personality for media appearances due to his depth of knowledge and obvious love of his work. 


Joining Dustin on the O2 team is Do Lab vet JP Chapman (known as O2T’s MacGyver), Tesla alum and numbers whiz Kendrick Calkins (Administrative Lead and Project Manager), and a handful of other creative types and nature lovers devoted to the craft.

Why Invest


Help us bring the natural world a little closer to home

People are more and more interested in integrating the wellness-enhancing effects of the natural world into their everyday lives. O2T brings together this desire with a confluence of market forces in home-sharing and ecotourism to forge the way forward.


With our decades of experience building some of the most beautiful homes in nature, we have developed the technologies and know-how to truly make O2T a revolution.


We envision a future in which our treehouses are widespread — providing a place for people to get back and find a peaceful retreat in this increasingly busy world. With our franchise model, we have a plan to bring our treehouses to the world.


All these years our mission has remained the same: Bring this increasingly virtual, disconnected world back to nature, one treehouse and one unforgettable experience at a time.

Hi Friends! 

Business has been booming and we are rapidly expanding to keep up. Some of our most exciting projects to date are coming to fruition soon, so we wanted to give you an update on a few of these incredible O2 Treehouse custom projects!

Custom treehouse design and build is the core of our business and an expression of our team’s creativity and innovation.

The Treehouse Revolution

15 days ago

Greetings current and future Treewalkers!

We are blown away by your tremendous support and so grateful to all who have invested in our company thus far! There has been incredible momentum behind the campaign and at the moment of this message we have raised over $70k in investments (in little over one week)!

We will have many more fun updates coming your way soon, but to start things off we are excited to share this video with you in which our founder Dustin Feider discusses the O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers ethos and mission. At the core of this mission is the desire to fundamentally change the way humanity coexists with the natural world. We believe that the opportunity to provide unforgettable experiences in treehouses to a vast number of people creates the possibility to spark a chain reaction of exponential change. 

Of course another central part of our ecological mission is to ensure that our Treewalkers tents have low environmental impact, striving to make each Treewalkers tent with responsibly sourced, biodegradable and recyclable materials and processes. (Read more specifics about our material choices in the comments above.) Soon we will be developing sustainability programs for our franchise owners and visitors such as low/no waste consumables and tree planting programs... and it won't stop there!

Cheers to being a changemaker! Thank you for joining us in the effort to forge a new and life-giving future for the planet. We would love to hear from you so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us anytime. We look forward to connecting with you soon!


In deeply-rooted gratitude, 

The O2 Treehouse Team
