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 reproducible on a large scale.
We are expanding our reach by building 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 December 2021, we have built the first Treewalker Tent, engineered several different installation scenarios, expanded our team, including a strong and diverse advisory board, begun our franchise registration, designed our core website, and lined up dozens of 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. Have a look at our first installed Treewalker Tent below!

Over 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 witness how today’s world has become 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 $302B worldwide in 2019 and is projected to grow at a compound annual rate of 14% to 763B in 2026.


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. We customize each of our treehouses to provide unique experiences for every client. 

gif

Moving forward, we believe that treehouse rental through franchised, prefabricated structures is the solution that allows 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 exclusive, modular design provides everything for the nature host to offer 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, (more than 75% of homeowners have carried out at least one home improvement project since COVID) 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.


O2 Treehouse is now expanding into the global ecotourism industry, valued at $302B worldwide in 2019 and projected to grow 14% year over year. We believe that O2 Treehouse offers the ideal product for both potential franchisees looking for a unique opportunity in which to invest, and for consumers seeking to getaway from their fast-paced, concrete-filled lives 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 custom treehouse owners and Treewalkers franchisees who can simultaneously capitalize on the ecotourism trend by renting out their treehouse structures.


We believe the existing reputation and recognition of O2T together with the potential reach of Treewalkers can propel us toward a relatively large stake in this $302B global industry and contribute to the future growth of both of these industries worldwide.  

Our Traction


Over 85 treehouses created with press features around the world

Since its inception, O2T has designed, structured and built over 85 custom treehouses for clients 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. Since the launch of Treewalkers, interest from potential franchisees has been immense, leading to more than 26 signed non-binding Letters of Intent to purchase one or more Treewalkers tents, and many more on the waitlist.

gif

We’ve made renting treehouses financially viable


O2T closely tracks the performance of our custom treehouses from the perspective of their rental and lease viability. Of those treehouses available for rent, we have seen a 70% occupancy rate with average guest reviews of 4.71 stars out of 5. 


Not only do people want to get away, but home improvement spending has grown remarkably since the beginning of the pandemic. We believe our beautiful treehouses couldn’t be more perfect solution for both needs.


The Treewalker Tent is a culmination of our field-tested experience. The design allows for relatively simple integration with the natural environment, allowing us to prefabricate the entire structure in our warehouse and promptly install it on site. By bulk purchasing our materials and utilizing assembly line manufacturing, we aim to offer and help finance luxurious and complete treehouses starting at $35,000. We will offer additional construction services to increase the value as well as the ROI for franchisees, which  will include local material finishes, furnishings and labor from local craftspeople, master planning, communal spaces, bridges, kitchens and bathrooms all integrated within the environment and with signature O2 enchantment.


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 around the natural environment.

gif

*rendering of Tetratruss technology

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 the Treewalkers franchise, the cost of the structure and installation will become more profitable as we scale and we will generate revenue by charging a franchise fee and a progressive 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: We plan to establish our Treewalkers network early on by using AirBnB as the rental platform — allowing us to more easily build the foundational network as we develop our proprietary system.

  • Growth Stage: With a more established network and proven results, we will enable our franchise revenue model. We plan to use investment capital from StartEngine to help establish the legal framework and franchise registration. The franchise fees will help us provide a franchise package that includes business support, a custom rental management platform, advertising, a robust sustainability program, loyalty points, and other benefits to ensure mutual success for our franchisees.

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 all around the world, we’ve built a trusted brand that has found respect throughout the treehouse community.

The Vision


Diversify our projects into hospitality and residential development

The 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.



Over 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 building system as the Treewalkers platform and are in the development stage.

We believe O2 Treehouse ownership and management have built the foundation for strong and profitable long-term growth. Whether through organic expansion, strategic partnership, investment, or acquisition, our priority is long-term value creation for all shareholders.

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), veteran accountant and financial planner Daniel Reichman (Financial Advisor) and a core of other creators 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 inspired, nature immersed architecture like ours is widespread — providing a place for people to reconnect and find a peaceful retreat in this increasingly busy world. With our franchise model, we have a plan to bring our structures 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.

3 Projects in 3 Months!

Hello O2 Treehouse Community,


We are excited to share some photos of the arboreal creations we’ve been working on as of late. O2 Treehouse has had four teams working simultaneously over the past three months, the greatest scale of operations at our company yet! They include a glass treehouse in Napa, CA, a curved-wall sanctuary in Palo Alto, CA, and perhaps our most exciting to anyone that has been following the progression of Treewalkers… our double Treewalker Tents!! (A build which is coming to a close soon in Dahlonega, Georgia.)


Last week we wrapped up our treehouse project in Napa. Here are some favorite photos taken by our team:

 



The treehouse village project, complete with two Treewalker Tents, should wrap up in about a month. The first structure is nearly finished, just waiting for the cherry on top - the stately canopy from Guildworks in Oregon - to arrive and be installed tomorrow. Here are some photos from the field:



Meanwhile, our third team has built the foundation for the awesome Palo Alto structure, and are set to begin framing very soon.




With our first Treehouse Village set to open its doors in coming weeks, there will surely be more exciting news and updates soon to come from O2 Treehouse. Thank you as always for following along and supporting us along this journey!


Gratefully, 

Dustin & The O2 Treehouse, Treewalkers Team

Treehouse Village Construction Process and Investor Info

26 days ago

Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 


We are happy to report that over the past two months we have been busier than ever with our most significant project yet! Since the end of our campaign, we have been hunkered down in our fabrication space diligently working away at our goals. We have some beautiful photos to share, but first here are some updates regarding your investments.


Perk Rewards:

We will be reaching out to each investor with the appropriate information for their perk rewards. For all those receiving the digital media package, we would like to include photos of the current build process in Georgia, so it will likely be in October-November that you receive this behind-the-scenes package. Look out for information regarding all other perk levels coming soon as well. 


Status of Your Investment:

We have received some questions such as “What do I do now?” and “How do I check the status of my investment?” The most important information we can give you is to hold on to your StartEngine login information. Your StartEngine account will be the home base for your investment information and documentation. There has not been any significant news affecting share prices or status, so you haven’t missed anything there. You will be notified directly if there is any news affecting your share price or status. We have a ledger with detailed information for each and every investor, so your investment is safe and held with confidence on our end. For all other questions and information, please see the StartEngine Investor FAQ, which is full of valuable notes. We are always available at info@o2treehouse.com for further questions. 


Now onto the fun stuff… our project in Georgia!

In case you missed it, we are building a treehouse village in Georgia! Phase one includes two Treewalker Tents, each with the debut master bathroom attached. Our install team is currently working hand in hand with the owners in a DIY kit agreement. We shipped out all of the components from California two weeks ago and they are already suspended in the trees! Here are some photos of the process over the past two months…

Announcing Our First Treehouse Village! - Two Days Left to Get Onboard

3 months ago

Dear O2 Treehouse Community, 


One of our most significant milestones, the creation of our first treehouse village, is now underway!

So many years of work, development, and planning have led us to this moment, and we are thrilled to share it with you. We owe an enormous thank you to all of our StartEngine investors, whose support has been essential to us reaching this pinnacle. 



The spark was lit when a savvy, ambitious couple approached us with big dreams for a luxurious treehouse village, built to hold equal parts fantasy, majesty, comfort, and accessibility. After two site visits to the Southeast, a few vision sessions, and concise road-mapping, the tires are now hitting the road, and prefabrication of their first batch of structures is now in progress. 


A short drive from Atlanta, Georgia will bring you to an expansive and magical Loxley Forest, where a new world beckons from the first step. This treehouse village aims to be the premier treehouse destination of the world with a plethora of accommodations, experiences, and adventures for solo travelers, couples, groups, and events. The big picture will continue to evolve as the location grows for years to come, but phase one will be extra exciting and groundbreaking. 


We will begin with the first batch of treehouses: a pair of Treewalker Tents, each with their own attached bathroom suspended in the trees, and a spacious outdoor deck. The next tier up will be a grand Equilibrium Home, air-conditioned and insulated, with all the comforts of home. The showstopper will be a copper, sculptural suite high in the trees, where visitors can revel in the inspiration and beauty of the upper canopy and escape to a hidden world of their own. The complex and organic geometry of these structures will echo the magnificent patterns of nature, bringing the outside, in. The variety of accommodations will highlight the versatility of our construction and continue to unlock the potential of truss architecture and its compatibility with our wondrous ecology.



Next up for Treewalkers? We will continue creating magical Treewalkers Villages around the world, and are seeking partners who would like to be a part of this first wave - join us in shaking up ecotourism world! Get in touch if you think we could be a synergistic match. Click here to find out more. 


We have long awaited this exciting announcement. With humble gratitude we thank YOU, our StartEngine community, for your loyal support. O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers are spiraling upward and advancing toward even more fantastic milestones. With our campaign coming to a close in two days, now is an opportune time to join our community or to increase your investment. Those who resonate with our mission can see the trend of the global community toward valuable experiences, meaningful contributions, and a symbiotic relationship between humans and our planet. We all have our part to play and it is our responsibility to lift each other up cross-industry. Equity crowdfunding allows those of us in more specialized niches to spread our impact and also to help our synergistic partners on the journey to create a better world. 


You don’t have to be a treehouser to support our work. All it takes is an understanding of the big picture to see why we at O2 Treehouse push passionately forward. That is why we will never stop creating as we endeavor to close the gap between humans and the natural world. We hope you will enter into the fold with us and share in the accomplishments that lie ahead. 


Gratefully, 

Dustin & The O2 Treehouse, Treewalkers Team



Our 46 Letters of Intent - What Every Investor Should Know

3 months ago

Dear O2 Treehouse Community,


One of the unique advantages of O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers that every investor should know more about is the incredible demand for our products. A special combination of market forces is in our favor: the rise of the glamping industry, the continued expansion of the short-term rental market, and a cultural shift toward meaningful experiences over the accumulation of belongings. O2 Treehouse is not simply riding this wave though. We bring an offering more enduring that stands on its own and lives through the company values embodied in our designs. These elements are hard to quantify, but we would like to share some data to back this up and highlight the implications of what this means to our company and investors for the short and long-term trajectory of O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers. 


Since the launch of our StartEngine campaign, we have received 550 sales inquiries directly through our form on www.treewalkers.world and 363 through our form on www.o2treehouse.com. Most significantly, we have cosigned 46 Letters of Intent with clients who wish to purchase our flagship Treewalker Tent (example agreement below). This is incredible and sometimes warrants a full-time representative to correspond and provide adequate follow-up with interested clients. Each connection is very important to us and these relationships will continue to develop as we further establish Treewalkers and increase our capabilities to meet this demand. 


What This Means for O2 Treehouse

We are incredibly grateful to be so well-positioned with sought-after products. While this comes as a great blessing, we still have many challenges that come with meeting this demand and the novelty of our offerings. Our custom projects have always faced a high degree of complexity and so too does the scaled manufacture of our Treewalker Tent. The primary reason for our StartEngine raise is to help build the infrastructure and complete the necessary research and development to develop a complex product into one that can be readily reproduced at scale across the globe. So far we have completed our first prototype, moved and scaled our production facility, and begun production of the next batch of Treewalker Tents.


While we have invested heavily and successfully in R&D, legal, and internal systems, the next area of focus has been our physical production and internal operations. Evolving a boutique design-build company into one of multi-line manufacturing requires expenditures on the front-end in tooling, human resources, and working capital to gracefully scale. We are very close to reaching an inflection point wherein we will be able to open the floodgates and rise to meet the demand we see at our doors. We have received a great boost thus far on StartEngine and the state of O2 Treehouse is one that is sustainable and consistently moving forward, but we would love to leap forward even further and see our vision realized on a shorter timescale.


What This Means for Our Investors

The waves of momentum are aligning in favor of O2 Treehouse and we stand at a momentous threshold. We are about to step through the door and rise to the scale of the major structure manufacturers in our industry, but with the unrivaled quality of O2 Treehouse’s design and values through Treewalkers. We have codified our customer demand into agreements and contracts that are waiting in the wings for our expansion. We have come a long way since our launch on StartEngine and have a very substantial foundation for our company and new business line that is ready to fly. Our product has been tested. The demand is stacked. And our company organization is logically assembling and preparing for growth. 


For our investor community, we are proud to shine a light on where we stand and are excited to share the developments that lie ahead as we work persistently toward them every day. We believe these final days of our StartEngine campaign provide the most advantageous time to invest further with O2 Treehouse for several reasons: 


  • Investors are able to see O2 Treehouse at its most developed state and compare where we started to where we are now.

  • O2 Treehouse is closer than ever to realizing our vision with Treewalkers and Equilibrium Home developments. 

  • There is a consistent record in our campaign updates with behind-the-scenes looks at all of our milestones. 

  • We successfully made the leap to a new production facility with room to grow.

  • We have an impressive backlog of orders and business partnerships ready to be realized, as illustrated by our 46 Letters of Intent. 


In one sense we are nearing the end, but we believe this is the beginning of the next great phase for O2 Treehouse and we have you to thank. Many more updates are soon to come. There are only 6 days left to invest further with O2 Treehouse!


Gratefully,

Custom Treehouse Design Coming Up!

4 months ago

Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 

While our Treewalkers team is busy building our next batch of structures, the custom side of our business is humming along. Here are photos of the next treehouse we are slated to install this month. 

This structure is a glass house sitting atop two massive glulam beams and two strong oak trees. The walls and roof are made of glass framed in steel with two draping roof sections that feel like wings. 





Let us know what you think!

Two Treewalker Tents with Bathrooms Under Construction!

4 months ago

Dear O2 Treehouse Community, 

We’re excited to share our progress on the next major development for Treewalkers…


Two Treewalker Tents with Bathrooms are Now Under Construction! 



This pair of double tents is destined for a treehouse village soon to be unveiled in the American Southeast. Along with tetratruss front porches, rope bridges, hangout decks, and additional custom treehouses, these treetop escapes are just the beginning of the line for this treehouse village of epic proportions. 


For a while, we’ve been eager to develop the attached bathroom design. It is the answer to one of the most common questions we have received: “Where is the bathroom?!” Now we are connected with the perfect partner and client to realize our vision. Construction is quickly pushing forward in tandem with the design. We’re aiming to see them flying and rentable by Fall! 


With our campaign coming to a close in 20 days, we are working to share all of the behind-the-scenes action with you. We have never been more excited for O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers developments ahead and hope you will follow along, join, or come closer into our investor community before its too late! While the path is clear, we are still in need of further investment to take Treewalkers to its greatest potential and every investment is deeply appreciated.

A Bigger and Better Headquarters for O2... Moving On Up!

5 months ago

Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 


We have some huge news for you… 



O2 Treehouse is moving to Petaluma, CA! 


It's quite a big move, but we’re ready for a new era, a new home, and an expansive chapter for our business! The benefits of the move are accessibility, more space, a healthier work environment, lower costs, and room to grow in so many ways! The new warehouse is a large, historic agricultural facility now home to various artisans and fabricators in the heart of downtown Petaluma. Not only is the warehouse perfect for us, with lots of usable outdoor space, but it's close to amenities like a river, green space, and several restaurants. Plus it's not too much of a hop from the central Bay Area, and it’s high time for our team of tree lovers to get a little closer to the forest. 



This move arrives at the perfect moment as some of our largest projects ramp up speed. As we add to our focus from one of only highly-customized, sculptural creations to the addition of this new line of modular, reproducible structures, we will definitely be utilizing the greater space capacities available at our new spot. Tetratruss production is at the core of our business now with our Treewalker Tents, Equilibrium Homes, and accessory structures moving to new levels of production and efficiency. Several Treewalker Tents will soon be headed to our first treehouse village slated to open this year! With more room to breathe, assemble, and produce, along with an energetic shift into this new phase for O2 Treehouse, we are beyond excited!



Thank you for helping us come so far! We still have a couple big pushes ahead and very much appreciate your continued support as we create new heights for the architectural world. Additional investments at this stage will help us to expand into our new space and increase our production of Treewalkers structures. This is a critical stepping stone, but a daunting one as you can imagine if you’ve ever moved your workplace, home, or entire business! Please consider an additional investment, or your first if you haven’t become an O2 Treehouse investor yet. We are very grateful for any and all support we receive as we embark on this new leg of our journey and the largest on the list of scaling milestones we set when we began our StartEngine campaign. We can’t wait to show off our new space once we’ve settled in and we will be sure to keep you, our awesome community, updated during this exciting time. Thank you!

Treewalker Tent Now Available for DIY Assembly!

5 months ago

Dear O2 Treehouse Community, 


We are excited to announce that the Treewalker Tent is now available with a DIY assembly option! This was always a goal, but after receiving feedback from our investors and community, we moved quickly to adapt the design and construction of the Treewalkers Tent for owner assembly. 


This is a win-win. By making the pieces easier to assemble, it has simplified the design and will be easier for owners and our team to assemble. The DIY assembly option reduces the total cost of each structure by an average of $10,000. By offloading some of the preliminary work to owners and local craftspeople, clients will save costs on the labor, logistics, and housing allocated to our team during that period. 


Have a look at our Treewalker Tent Limited Sale Page


The DIY assembly option has a defined scope, starting with the establishment of a level surface for the truss assembly, and ending with the installation of the walls, floor, and furnishings with pre-fit brackets. Here are some photos of the build process of our prototype for reference:




Treewalkers Tent owners can do the bulk of the on-site work. The creation of the foundation “cup” includes the walls, casework, floor, and supporting truss. The only tools needed will be a drill, wrenches, and minor hand tools. No saws necessary! 


From there, our team will handle the rest…


Our treehouse experts will always ensure the work was done properly by the client first, then handle the installation of the tent poles, canopy, and finish details. From there we’ll take care of the transport to the final location, lifting, permanent rigging, and entryway construction.


We are grateful to have owners for the next batch of Treewalker Tents lined up already, but we still have space for orders and installations this year. If you are interested please have a look at this page and reach out to us. As a reminder, this is a limited sale outside of the Treewalkers network for uses of the owner’s choice. Moving forward they will only be available to Treewalkers franchise location owners. Join the network early and help pave the way! Thank you for your support thus far.

Video Tour of Our Equilibrium Homes!

Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 


To follow up on our last update, here is a feature video of our completed Equilibrium Homes! We went in-depth with FLORB media, walking through our favorite details and the stories behind each completed EQ Home. Beneath the video is a sneak peek of the conceptual design for a current project with 1,000+ interior square feet and integrated utility systems. We’re at the threshold of huge developments for O2 Treehouse & Treewalkers, with just a little more push needed to get us there!


“Man Develops Revolutionary Treehouse Design"


This week our team has been busy moving our studio to a new, larger location where we have the ability to really ramp up production and take these creations to the next level. More on this soon to come, but in the meantime, we could really use the help of your further investment during this momentous phase of expansion. New tools, larger facilities, more experts, and further R&D are all coming into place with costs not directly covered by each project. Your support would be directly applied to this development, helping us expand in the market of sustainable housing and eco hospitality, changing the way we build with the natural world. Thank you for your continued support!

Equilibrium Homes: Residential Eco Housing - Invest in a New Model of Development!

6 months ago

An important aspect of the O2 Treehouse business model that we’ve only briefly touched on in previous content is the Equilibrium Home system...

 

The Equilibrium Home is our prefabricated treehome for residential living. As our Treewalker Tents move deeper into production phases, the design team is focusing their amazing vision on further development of this unparalleled treehome system. Any investment from our followers now will directly rev the O2T engine and expand the market reach of this stunning product that much sooner!

 

 

Equilibrium Homes, or EQ Homes as we call them, are elevated homes that feature full insulation, bathrooms, and other comforts of traditional houses. We’ve built three Equilibrium Homes so far, have several projects underway right now (two of which are primary residences meant for full-time family living), and have big plans for what is possible with this adaptable building system. We are at a crucial moment where your investment could immediately push these projects toward the finish line and move us toward our next goals.


 

The essence of an Equilibrium Home is its modularity. Using our Tetratruss foundation and standardized, structurally insulated panel walls - the possible configurations are nearly limitless. Any pattern can be traced and constructed to form multiple rooms, walkways, decks, stairs, and living spaces. This system is a beautiful balance between awe-inspiring, custom architectural experiences and an efficient production process. Building in this way allows the local ecology to be preserved, reducing our impact on forests and natural areas. While these renders show homes supported by trees, EQ Homes are easily adaptable to stilted designs where no trees exist.


 

As a core feature of Treewalker Villages, EQ homes are an option for families and guests looking for an experience at new heights that also provide the comforts of everyday living. As a direct-to-consumer product, they live in a more practical space than some of our other inhabitable pieces of art, with more conventional staircases, kitchens, bathrooms, and the like. They are treehouses that can truly be homes, combining the uplifting inspiration of living close to nature with the necessities of modern living. In this way, Treewalkers locations will function as experiential showrooms for guests interested in purchasing these homes for private use. As we scale this growth we have our sights set on residential communities of Equilibrium Homes that will be sustainable in their operational resource use, preservation of natural ecologies, and development of healthy communities. Opportunities and initial feasibility studies for these developments have already presented themselves and will surely continue as we scale our production and build more completed homes.

 

 

The Equilibrium Home building system has been implemented successfully several times by the stellar O2 Treehouse build crews. Have a look at our gallery of completed Equilibrium Homes


 

This ramp-up in production and forecasted growth is an important aspect of our valuation and business model, so it is ripe for elucidation. With several homes in the design and permitting process, it won’t be long until we follow up with more exciting information. In the meantime, we are open to further conversation with those who would like to elevate their living experience to new levels of sustainability and inspiration, as well as developers who see the value in providing these spaces for guests to see the world from a new perspective. It only takes one memorable experience to shake us from our habits of perception and inspire us to reimagine how we can live in and amongst the natural world that supports us. 

 

Thank you for your support in our StartEngine campaign thus far! It has helped us break into a new and exciting phase of development for O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers, which lands us on the precipice of more major developments. As we invest in better equipment, a larger studio, and the labor power to push these windfall projects toward completion, we could really use your help to boost our momentum and lead this burgeoning market in an industry begging for change.

O2 Tree Pavilion at Arise Festival - Join Us May 27-30

6 months ago

Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 


We’re excited to share what we’ve been up to here at O2 Treehouse over the past few weeks! We have been deep in pre-fab on a permanent festival installation for Arise Festival in Boone, CO taking place May 27-30! Arise Festival is a family-friendly event with musicians, performers, yoga, workshops, and speakers from far and wide.



The structure we’ll be installing is centered around a legacy Cottonwood tree overlooking the nearby river, with features radiating at multiple heights from its trunk. It will be the acoustic, unplugged hub of the festival - inviting wanderers to take a few moments to relax and bask in its sheltering branches… to look up at the stars and marvel at the magnificence of this tree.



Arise Festival will also be hosting epic connection events wherein participants are invited to bring their instruments and jam out with some of the festival’s featured performers! The event producers are currently looking for sponsors and co-creators to facilitate these once in a lifetime opportunities - if you’re interested please get in touch with them here. We’ll see you there - we’ll be in the front row!



Some of the features we’re extra excited about are the tree branch lounge net with views for miles, artisanal fall protection banisters, a custom-made slide for exits in style, accent lighting, and an expansive, womb-like, gathering space below the platform.



The entire structure is supported by massive posts - no stress on the tree - and decorated with fabric sails blowing in the wind. Our team is finishing up prefabrication of these elements this week and we’ll be shipping them out very soon! It’s rare that we as builders get to spend ample time enjoying our creations, so best believe we will be basking in this beauty throughout the festival! We hope to see you there; please let us know if you plan to join!

New Custom Treehouse Photos: Bridges, Ziplines, and An Unbeatable View!

6 months ago

Hello!


We just completed another lovely custom treehouse creation we’d love to share! This one is built for the kids to love for many years to come while also being tons of fun for adults. The view from this property is incredible and the treehouse structures make it that much more epic to enjoy. 



One central treehouse hangout - loft sleepover-ready - connects to two additional platforms via cable bridge and ziplines. One platform is large enough for kids to run around on and for parents to entertain guests, and the other platform is meant to be only accessible by the brave-of-heart via zipline. All safety precautions and harnesses are required, of course. Let us know what you think and if you’d want this for you and yours!

Video Recap: Treewalker Tent Tour Live Q&A Webinar

7 months ago

Hello O2 Treehouse Community!


In case you weren’t able to make it to our Live Treewalker Tent Walkthrough last Thursday, we have it recorded for you here! We had a lot of fun introducing the structure, answering your questions, and talking details from permitting to maintenance and future plans for the structure. The tour starts at 7:00 and Dustin climbs into the tent at 14:40 in case you want to jump to the juicy parts.


If you have any questions please feel free to reach out and if you are interested in owning one of the world’s first Treewalker Tents, we have a few spots available in our installation schedule for this year! You can view more details at this link



Highlights:

- Visual Tour with all of the details

- How much space is inside?

- What all is included?

- Do I need a permit?

- What other options are available?

- How long does the structure last in the trees?

- What does maintenance look like?


One important note we would like to clarify from the video is in regard to the lifespan of the structure. We expect the canopy to last at least 5-10 years depending on location before it may be necessary to replace it. However, the lifespan of the entire structure is expected to be much longer than that. The bones of the whole structural assembly consist of ¼” steel. With perhaps some wood replacements or refinishing along the way, we’re talking 30-50+ years! As with any new toy, the better it is taken care of the longer it will last. Although it is an intricate structure, the components are relatively simple and most repairs straightforward. Our standard warranty policy is one year complete everything, two years on workmanship, and five years on structural. But if you are worried about the canopy or anything in specific, we’re happy to find an agreement that gives you peace of mind. We’re happy to talk through all the details with you and most of them are covered in this video!


Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or desire to connect! We are always available for you.

Timelapse of Changing Forests Around the World

7 months ago

Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 


We want to share this video with you because it gives a shocking look at the impact of human development in forests around the world. We know treehouses are not the singular answer but are at least opening the door toward a new relationship between humans and nature. Our generation’s task now is to shift the negative connotation of development from one of degradation to regeneration. 



Deforestation around the world is a serious problem for the health of our planet. We hear news and see glimpses of this from time to time, but when we see the big picture, the gravity of this devastation is very clear. This timelapse video from Google Earth focuses on a few locations on the globe where the effects on our forests are stark. It hurts to see and is hard to watch, but we’re grateful to have this awareness because it amplifies our passion and the importance of our work. With no sign ahead of human development slowing down, it is so important that we shift our relationship with the environment to one that invigorates our local habitats and richens local ecology or things will continue to get worse for humans, animals, and all that sustains life on planet earth. Have a look at this video and let us know what you think.

Franchise Disclosure and Agreement Update!

7 months ago


Hello O2 Treehouse Community, 


For years we’ve been thinking about how to open the gates of access to the life-changing experiences of beautiful architecture woven into nature. We want to give a new perspective on how humans can live with our environment and a provide memorable experience to as many people as possible. With the vast number of landowners who want to do the same using our structures, the crucial question was how we were going to meet this demand and how to structure our company to best fit these client relationships. 


After a long time weighing the pros and cons, we decided that franchising was the vehicle that best fit our vision. We want to do so much more than manufacture stunning structures. We want these architectural vessels to be a part of a greater vision and story of ecological stewardship. Treewalkers is the name we chose to realize this vision. While it's no simple or easy feat to establish a franchising company, we are committed and we’re almost there! 


We want to give our investors a few updates on this process and where we stand. 


We have drafted our Franchise Disclosure Document


A Franchise Disclosure Document is the core of any franchise business and is no small undertaking. Franchise laws were instituted to ensure all information about the franchising company and details of the agreement are disclosed, primarily to protect franchisees who are often small business owners, from mighty corporations. Any business looking to sell franchises must submit their FDD and register their franchise in any state in which they intend to sell so that it is publicly available and transparent. So far we have drafted the entire document - about 145 pages that cover nearly every detail of the deal - and this will soon be publicly available. 


Our Franchise Registration is Not Complete Yet


We are not licensed to sell franchises and do not intend to sell until we are licensed and registered in applicable states. 


There are a few remaining details of our Franchise Disclosure Document that we are clarifying with our franchise attorney such as: 


  • Termination policies

  • Protections for our Franchisees

  • The minutiae of daily operations and standards


We are brainstorming as a team and consulting our best advisors to complete these final details. Our advisors come from key points on the spectrum, as franchise owners and consultants on both the franchisee and the franchisor side, so we are confident that we will create a disclosure that benefits both the business and our franchisees. 


We Anticipate Our Franchise Disclosure Will Be Complete in a Month


Franchise laws are meticulous and thorough to protect franchisees and ensure rectitude from franchisors. We agree with these principles and appreciate the clarity it will provide. Because of this, FDDs are very lengthy. However, we understand that our franchise model is core to the success of our business and our investors, which is why we are diligently spending the time needed to do it correctly. 


We look forward to sending you an update when our Franchise Disclosure is complete, so don’t forget to follow our campaign if you haven’t done so already.

It captures the essence of Treewalkers and why we believe in the power of inspired experiences in nature to shift human actions, as well as why we chose a partnership model to spread this work around the globe. Please take a moment to watch and let us know what you think! 

If you haven’t already, we hope that you will consider investing in our campaign, furthering our mission to create more abundant access to life-affirming and life-changing experiences in nature – through inspired architecture in the trees – via the Treewalkers network!

[What does Treewalkers offer?]

Treewalkers offers an incredible eco-experience for travelers and an amazing business opportunity for land owners.

[Why Treehouses?]

A lot of people say… Treehouses? That’s so impractical… there are so many other things, engineering solutions that we need [to resolve our dysfunctional relationship with the planet].

But engineering solutions don’t play to our humanity… treehouses, architecture, speaks to that humanity and speaks to the connection with our surroundings.

When you come to Treewalkers, we’re hoping to offer you an experience that’s going to perhaps shape the way that you relate to nature on a fundamental level. That is the ultimate goal.

[Eventually] we want to create residential developments using the Equilibrium home system, which is based upon the Tetratruss elevated platform system.

[Why a franchise business model?]

Many years ago when O2 Treehouse started conceptualizing the way that we were going to scale what we were doing with our custom treehouses, we wanted to try and figure out the best model to be able to bring this idea to many… and after investigating many different ways in which that could be done, franchises was really the best vehicle for that. [Namely because it will allow for consistency of a overarching brand experience, and at the same time, flexibility for each location to be unique — the details of which will flourish from the creativity and vision of each individual camp owner.]

[I’m interested in becoming a part of the Treewalkers network - how will it work?]

The way that we’re approaching it is that Treewalkers will really enter into a partnership with each one of our camp locations. The camp owner will own their land, they’ll develop the civil infrastructure, they will purchase […] those treehouses, and we as a partner will design/build that master plan, and come with all of the aspects of the operations — like a typical franchise — but still allowing that location a lot of creativity to breathe into it their own life and character… and that inspiration and care from the owner is really what is going to make Treewalkers a strong brand… where each time you visit a new location, you’ll know that it's going to have something a little different to be explored, discovered there. [Please get in touch here if you are interested in joining Treewalkers as a camp location!]

[Bottom line?]

It’s really just a truly unique experience, and it’s floating in the trees… it really doesn’t get much better than that.


Well said, Dustin! :)


Thanks so much for following & supporting our journey, we can’t wait to see you in the trees!


In gratitude,

Dustin & the O2 Treehouse & Treewalkers Teams

You Can Purchase a Treewalker Tent! (Limited Time Only!)

8 months ago

Hello!


If you haven’t heard, we just completed our first Treewalker Tent! It’s floating amongst the trees near the Russian River in Northern CA, and it’s absolutely stunning! 


Check out the new photos and video at www.treewalkers.world! If you are curious to see the treehouse yourself in Sonoma County, let us know! All of the images and renders can’t do justice to what it feels like to be inside, touch the fabric, and look out the windows over the river. 


Our Treewalker Tents are being created and reserved for our franchise launch. 


However, in light of celebrating a huge milestone, we decided to do something special for our investor community…


For a LIMITED TIME ONLY you can purchase your very own Treewalkers Tent! 


If you’ve been thinking about building a treehouse–whether for your own enjoyment or to start a glamping business–now is the time. 


Interested? Check out our product page with details including costs. 


If you have any questions, please reach out to us in the comments section of our campaign page. We can discuss optional add-ons, modifications, and anything else to fit your needs. 


We will wrap up our product development phase with this initial batch of Treewalker tents that we’ve made available to our investor community. Moving forward the Treewalker Tents will only be available to owners within our franchise structure, so act fast, as we believe this is an extraordinary, one-time opportunity to own a collector’s edition and use it however you’d like!

Comin’ in Hot! New Treewalker Video Reel is Live!

8 months ago


Hello!


We are proud to present this video of the first Treewalkers Tent to you today!


Our mission has always been to spread inspiration and appreciation of the natural world to as many people as possible. And the completion of our first Treewalkers prototype is a huge step toward expanding this vision.


Through years of experimenting and constructing various treehouses, we developed a new style of architecture and method for building with nature we call the Tetratruss system – a game changer we knew could impact the treehouse community forever. 


Several years later, we adapted this building technology to a reproducible model, the flagship structure for Treewalkers. 


To learn more, read the original press release here. 


Watch our latest video reel to see our first Treewalker floating amongst the majestic redwoods of Northern California.

The First Treewalker is Complete! Photos are in…

8 months ago

Hello!

We have been looking forward to this day for a very long time... 

The first Treewalker Tent is completed and floating amongst the trees in Northern CA! We’ve been relishing in this accomplishment together over the past week and are now excited to share this milestone with you, our supporters, who have helped make it possible. 

We’ve reached many important waypoints in the Treewalkers journey thus far, but nothing blows wind in our sails quite like the physical embodiment of Treewalkers - our glamping tent - alive and flying high!

Photos by Alissa Kolom

We threaded the needle in this tight Redwood fairy circle for a perfect perch overlooking the Russian River. We’ve already shared some photos of the progress, which revealed the form, but the finish details really stand out here: the top cap above the vent fan at the peak, the layered window details, the entryway, and all of the built-in furnishings. 

We made it over the prototype hill and learned so much in the process. Improvements and modifications are already in the works, but we’re proud that we’ve come so close to a final version on the first try. With a few modifications, we’ll be ready to build the next batch and install them in their new homes! 

This update has been the most enjoyable for us to share to date. There was an incredible amount of hard work put into producing this first iteration of the tent, which makes its installation that much sweeter. This accomplishment is a major milestone in our movement to inspire and empassion humanity into a more reverent and sustainable relationship with this beautiful home of ours.

The work to restore our environment can look like art, inspiration, adventure, and fun. Our responsibilities are heavy, but the power to act is born more from the joys and appreciation we experience firsthand. 

To help us remember the sanctity of nature as we go about our daily lives, imagination, wonder, and awe must be evoked in those fleeting moments we have outdoors… We believe this connection will help create lasting inspiration and energy that has the power to ignite real change - to bridge the gap leading to a more harmonious relationship between the natural world and our modern lives.

The Treewalkers mission is to use architecture as the foundation for experiences, action, projects, creation, and motivation to fuse together that which delights us and that which nourishes our planet. 

To our investors who have fueled this journey and made it all possible: THANK YOU! Your belief in us has kept our fires stoked through difficult and uncertain times. We have been looking forward to the day when we could share this news with you for a long while. And there is so much more to come: exciting developments, updates, and more peeks behind the scenes as we press on with our work and mission at O2 Treehouse. We still have many hurdles and milestones ahead of us, so please share our story, posts and campaign with those who may be interested, continue to visit our website for news and updates, and please consider investing again. While we have accomplished so much through our community on StartEngine thus far, we will need more funding to achieve our next steps and see this vision through to its greatest potential.

Thank you! 

Gratefully, 

Dustin and the entire O2 Treehouse - Treewalkers Team

New Visualizations of Treewalkers Communities

9 months ago

Hello!

We often describe our vision for Treewalkers by utilizing the phrase “we are bringing the Ewok village to life,” a reference to the legendary treehouse community from Star Wars. We can envision this future reality in our minds, but before it comes to life, we are excited to share it with you through 3D visualization – check out the amazing renders below! 

Here we have illustrated a new way to build and live integrally with the local ecology – but the possibilities are nearly endless with the customizable capabilities of our Tetratruss building system (plus imagination!)

The canopy of a forest is a unique biological zone often unseen from the ground where an abundance of life thrives. Sensing the world at height is an enchanting and humbling experience.


We are thrilled with how the bridge connection details turned out here, as they are true to form based upon one of our recent projects using this cable and pillar method.

 


These designs display a mere drop in the ocean of potential for Treewalkers Villages – this is just the beginning! The Tetratruss can be used in creative ways to connect multiple levels and groupings of decks and hangout spaces. We plan to offer a few of our favorite O2T custom designs to the mosaic of possibilities as well. 

We’re excited to collaborate with our franchisees to marry the needs of their unique camps with our architectural vision, and together bring these magical experiences to life. If you share our passion and vision for connecting humanity with nature through transcendent architecture, we can’t wait to hear from you. Thank you for your support along the way!

In Gratitude,

The Top 5 Reasons to Invest in O2 Treehouse on StartEngine!

9 months ago


O2 Treehouse Community,


In a recent investor article we broke down the top five reasons why you should invest in my company, O2 Treehouse, on StartEngine!


Business Model That Works


I have been building treehouses for a very long time. It's been 16 years in total! 


I started in 2006, and since then my team and I have created over 85 tree houses around the world. The company has been growing exponentially, and it's really seen an increased growth since late 2019.


We've tripled our team, and we are absolutely flying along. We have a very strong two and a half plus year pipeline of projects, and that's just going to continue to grow. 


Treewalkers, like I mentioned, is based upon a franchise business model. We're basically going to take what we've been doing with O2 Treehouse, building custom treehouses, and we're creating a Treehouse Hospitality brand.


Since we've launched that concept, we have signed up 40 partners to build Treewalker camps via letters of intent that they've signed with us.


Creating Unique Patterns That Pop


We pull patterns out of nature. That's kind of been our special sauce for so many years, and we're really pushing that even further. 


We've developed a proprietary building system. I kind of call it the Lego of the Treehouse world. It is a hub and strut system, and it's the pragmatic way to create an Ewok village.


Our truss system is pre-engineered for many different scenarios, for stilted, and for tree suspended. It's really the core aesthetic and engineering approach and part of the unique brand identity for Treewalkers.


Our camps are going to be filled with this beautiful kind of a flower of life based sacred geometry design, and we're super excited about that.


Booming Market Opportunity


Today, the glamping market is at 2.4 billion, and it's seeing a 14% compound annual growth rate! 


This is absolutely phenomenal for the travel industry. Everybody is currently flocking to this space and market opportunity. 


It's just compounding on what Airbnb has created, the millennial generation and generations that are coming up now. They're flocking to the natural world. They're flocking to these points of environmental stewardship and conservation. 


We've been riding that wave, and the wave is getting increasingly bigger. 


Market analysts estimate that by 2025 the market will be worth $4 billion. That is a huge market opportunity and a massive reason to invest with us.


Passionate Team of Visionaries


I knew that one of the most crucial points of our success was going to be based of course upon the experience of the team, or who's on the bus. 


It took quite a while prior to our launch to really plot and form relationships, and get together an advisory board that had all the skills that we don't, to fill in the holes. 


We wanted to make sure that we had brilliant people in those positions.


One person that we are working with hand-in-hand, on each of the relationships that we're forging with our franchise locations, is Dale Van Doren. He has over 30 years of experience and is our hospitality guru.


While at this point in the company we have limited experience in hospitality, we can rely on our partnership with Dale, who has had his hand in every facet of this industry.

From the gift shop to limo service, Dale has developed and built successful boutique hospitality locations all around Alaska.


And to boot, he's an executive chef.


Hot Off The Press


We build structures that are pretty much eye candy. 


People love looking at treehouses. People are really inspired and excited about treehouses. It's just that perfect blend - the nexus of taking architecture and putting it into these really gorgeous natural spaces. 


Due to that kind of confluence and our approach to the treehouse building, really sculptural type of structures, we’ve had some really notable press features - the most recent of which was the Nightly News with Lester Holt, a spotlight on our Pinecone Treehouse.


We've really been fortunate to be in many top publications, such as:


  • Forbes

  • Condé Nast

  • Dwell

  • Wired

  • Architectural Digest

  • Animal Planet Treehouse Master


Related Forbes Article: “12 Treehouses And Human Nests To Mentally Escape To Until You Can Do The Real Thing


I think that we will continue to be in the press with the structures that we're creating for the Treewalkers brand. There are some really incredible, exciting things coming out. 


Join Our Community of Early Shareholders!


Stick with us. Right now it is an incredible time to invest! 


We've already had over 650 individual investors invest in our online equity campaign on StartEngine, and we don't see that slowing down. 


We encourage you to head over to our raise page and consider us as your next investment!


If you have any questions or concerns, please leave your questions on our StartEngine page!

The Treewalker Canopy is Up!

9 months ago

Hello Treewalkers!


We hit another major milestone for Treewalkers this week: the fitting of the canopy and full suspension of the first structure in a marvelous Redwood circle! 


Our team has been working through heavy rains for the past two weeks. Despite the challenges, they managed to hoist, drop, and tension the canopy into its permanent position!  Even with the best designs, we know that sometimes things don’t work out smoothly in reality, but that was not the case here. It fit perfectly! And of course with the rains we knew right away it was 100% waterproof.


Our team is off for the holiday week, but come January we will be completing the interior and adding the finishing touches. We can’t wait to share the finished photos with you! We are eager to build and find a home for the next, which will be larger and with an off-white color canopy rather than the beige seen here. 


Thank you for following along and helping us achieve this goal! It means so much to us. From the whole O2 Treehouse team: Have a Happy New Year!

O2T Investor Q&A Recap!

10 months ago


O2 Treehouse Community,


We recently held an exclusive investor Q&A webinar, where we had the opportunity to answer some of your burning questions! 


In our latest investor article, we addressed some of the frequently asked questions we’ve been receiving from our investor community.


How Do We Create These Meaningful Experiences?


Dustin Feider:

“People are looking for meaningful experiences in nature -- made apparent by an incredible surge in interest in unique short term rental experiences. And what they are looking for in that space is treehouses. Treehouses are one of the most popular rentals, and usually the rental with the best ROI. 


We build some absolutely gorgeous, radical treehouses for a much lower price point. That's the key here. 


Treehouses are super expensive because typically their build processes, and logistics involved are so in depth. We're solving that with Treewalkers.”


With Treehouses Being So Sought Out, Why Aren’t We Seeing More of Them?


Niko Kush:

“Because no one really has the capacity to meet the demand and has developed a model that's reproducible. It's very boutique and expensive right now, but the numbers show that people want it.”


Dustin Feider:

“As it says here, the glamping tent is just the beginning. For the franchisee locations to really thrive, it requires a stratification of different price point offerings. 


It's important to remember that we're not just providing the glamping tent for our locations. We also have the equilibrium home system.”


Can This Harm the Trees in Any Way?


Dustin Feider:

“When we add a piece of tree attachment hardware to a tree, the tree is going through that natural cycle of ensuring that it is not damaged internally or is not infected. 


It's also actually growing, it compartmentalizes itself off and then it grows additional layers as trees do and fortifies that hardware over time”


What’s the Payback Time Projected for Franchisees?


Dustin Feider:

“The payback period for the franchisees is of course going to differ depending upon the quantity of structures, and of course the cost per night that you can rent the structure out in your market.


We feel that an ROI on an average base case scenario, could be a two to three year payback for the cost of a single Treewalker tent.”

The Treewalker Canopy: The Story from R&D to Installation

10 months ago

Hello friends! 

The first Treewalkers canopy is on its way to installation atop our premiere structure this week! In honor of its birth into the world, we’d like to share the story of how we brought this custom canopy concept to reality. 



Our partners and the fabric architecture masters at GuildWorks have been instrumental in our R&D of the canopy, integrating all of the technical aspects of our design. Details that would have been significant hurdles for us such as the windows, zippers, apex, and foundation connections have been expertly handled along with the creation of jigs and custom tooling in preparation for successive manufacturing.


The scaled prototype of the window details:

One challenge we faced was this window detail. We wanted the window screens to be inside of the tent flap so that they weren’t collecting debris on the exterior when not in use. A solution for the windows to be operable with the screen and zippers on the inside was best resolved by experts in fabric architecture. Since the whole canopy is under significant tension, reinforcement rings needed to go around the windows so that they don’t lose their shape when open and become difficult to close. 


Another key decision was on the fabric type. Initially, we were leaning toward cotton canvas, but we know that longevity is one of the most important factors for structure owners. Canvas tents often need to be replaced every 2-3 years because the properties of the material allow mold and mildew growth very quickly both inside and out. While canvas is more friendly to the environment, the reality of having to change the canopy is obviously not ideal, so we decided against it. We now have a fabric with a 10-year manufacturer's warranty and a much longer lifespan that can even be repurposed for a life after Treewalkers.  

We chose a technical fabric, Sioen Flexout, that has a very smooth exterior surface and a canvas textured interior. Most permanent fabric architecture utilizes a similar material. The slick exterior will shed debris and snow like a dolphin in the ocean. Since dirt and dust are growth mediums for fungi, this will drastically reduce any unwanted and hard-to-reach colonizers – a huge relief to any tent owner. It will also excel in moisture control on the interior, along with UV resistance, light translucency, and overall durability so that it can be left up during harsh winters and will be low maintenance for every owner. Here is the product sheet and the production process from the Sioen website.


Our build crew is currently happily installing the first Treewalkers structure in one of the most beautiful locations in the world, Monte Rio, California, right next to the Russian River:

We’re teeming with excitement around this milestone and we can’t wait to share more. Thank you for following along!

The First Treewalkers Structure is Being Built!

10 months ago

Hello Fellow Treewalkers!


O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers are proud to share this exciting milestone: The first Treewalker structure is ready to fly!

We have assembled the skeleton of the structure and are very impressed with how it looks in real life. All of the major components came together seamlessly thanks to our diligent designers, engineers, and fabricators. We did a dry fit of the wall panels, truss, and tent poles before all of the pieces are loaded out to be installed in totality this week in Sonoma County, California. Important to note is that this is the small version, with about 108 sq. feet of floor space, but it still feels grand! We had to leave out the bottom tier of truss otherwise it wouldn’t fit beneath our warehouse gantry crane! Up next will be the full size version at 170 sq. feet. 


We designed the proportions of the tent with the golden ratio of phi, the factor in the Fibonacci’s sequence seen in many of the great monuments of architecture and nature. When the tent poles first arrived in our shop, they looked enormous, but when seen in combination with the Treewalker foundation, the proportions look divine indeed. 

It is engineered to withstand some of the strongest winds in the world, designed for an organic and unforgettable guest experience, and built with the highest quality materials from the beautiful Beech interior walls up to the technical fabric canopy built for longevity in the elements.


We can’t wait to share photos of the structure with all of the accoutrements in its final home later this month. It brings us great joy to share this huge milestone with all of our supporters who have made this possible! Treewalkers is now ready to see-d the world! Thank you for your support during our journey and stay tuned for more exciting updates.

New Floating Tetratruss Platform with a View!

11 months ago

Hello Treewalkers!

Today we're happy to say that StartEngine has approved a campaign extension and we are entering a very exciting phase as the first Treewalkers prototype is coming together in our shop! More on that soon. In the meantime, we just finished another Tetrauss project and it came out looking great! Have a look!



Its a huge platform with views that overlook the Bay Area and a treehouse addition soon to follow. 






We think this railing turned out beautifully, and the extensive cantilever lends one a sense of floating in the air. This has been another great experience as we prepare for the upcoming Treewalkers structures.


This week we started building the Treewalkers Glamping Tent in our shop! Much of the week the pre-fab team has been hard at work on a large volume of material prep: assembling wall panels, painting, and welding. We’re getting all of the components ready for assembly, and will have photos of them coming together for you next week!

Spotlighting O2T’s Incredible Visionary Team

11 months ago

O2 Treehouse is a company with a mission to inspire people to get out of their comfort zone and reconnect with the wonders of nature.


Our veteran visionaries combine artistic imagination with technical chops to create the most beautiful treehouses in the world. From design and engineering to building, we ensure that each project is unique and exceeds expectations.


Meet the nature lovers and creators that are bringing the O2T mission to life, one majestic creation at a time.

Dustin Feider, Owner and CEO 



Designer, builder, and owner Dustin Feider started O2 Treehouse with the intention to inspire people to reconsider how we can more harmlessly coexist with nature. O2 Treehouse was born in 2006 when Dustin built his first geodesic structure 50 feet up in a Poplar tree in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.


His treehouse designs have received national and international recognition in the design community, appearing in over 100 design publications and television shows around the world, most notably Popular Mechanics, Dwell and Wired Magazines and Treehouse Masters on Animal Planet. Most recently, he was featured on NBC Nightly News with Lestor Holt.

Heather Feider, CFO and Secretary



A pinch-hitter for O2 Treehouse for years, Heather has been absolutely monumental to the success of O2 Treehouse. The resident jill of all trades, Heather’s role has quickly become crucial to smooth day to day operation as she floats between business management, project management, marketing and outreach, event planning, and everything in between.

 

Her positive attitude, organization, quick thinking and creativity are a boon to the helm of the team. 


With a background in general management, a penchant for planning, and a passion for nature and sustainability, she is as happy as a gnome to be a part of the O2 Treehouse family.

Kendrick Calkins, Project Engineer 



Kendrick is a Bay Area native with a passion for numbers. He obtained his Degree in Mathematics while working at Siemens and Tesla, continuously gaining an appreciation for how the world works. 


He brings his experiences as Administrative Lead and Project Manager to O2 Treehouse. 


Although new to the world of treehouses, Kendrick tackles the unique challenges of building livable art in the trees like no other. 

Niko Kush, Marketing Director



Niko began building with O2 Treehouse in 2017 and although he was a bit fresh to building, his curiosity and clear intent to learn brought him up to speed quickly. 


After a few years helping grow the O2 audience, he came on full time as Marketing Director with the launch of our StartEngine campaign and Treewalkers. He now manages all visibility for O2 Treehouse and drives the engine behind Treewalkers. His intimate knowledge of our company and his digital prowess are huge assets to our marketing, sales, and business development teams. 


Niko’s calm, cool and collected demeanor and friendly style make him always fun to work with a custodian of good vibes at O2T. 

Jon-Paul Chapman, Lead Foreman



JP has been building treehouses with O2 Treehouse since 2009 and is O2’s lead foreman. His skills range from mechanical HVAC to traditional framing to rigging and building large scale tensegrity structures. 


After moving west in 2007 from NM Chapman began working with Bamboo DNA and quickly expanded his network amongst the greater festival production community throughout the West Coast. JP moonlights as a lead foreman for the premier festival production company Do Lab and is a cherished member of the CA alt community.

The Avocado Parlor Treehouse - Photos

12 months ago

Hello!


We have some stunning new photos to share with you of our recent San Diego treehouse: The Avocado Parlor! This O2 Custom project is for a health and wellness advocate, Tracy Duhs, who wanted an indoor/outdoor space to host and inspire her work and clients with some grounding and fresh air. 

Photos by Alissa Kolom





Included is a river stone floor, big sliding windows, a luxurious bathroom, space to relax, and a beverage counter for serving up Tracy’s favorite medicine: water! 





Although it is primarily a ground house, it doesn’t lack in its elevated experience! One staircase climbs the exterior wall to bring visitors onto a rooftop deck with wide open views. 



Just outside the sliding door is a ladder that climbs up the trunk and through the canopy of a magnificent avocado tree. Awaiting climbers at the top is a circular hangout net, integrated with all of the tree branches. There they can lay in the leaves with a view far and wide of this city by the ocean. 






We don’t limit ourselves to structures in trees. Wherever we build, our goal is to bring the outside world in, and inside life out. The Avocado Parlor is a great example of a treehouse that doesn’t need big or burly trees, just the intent to bring nature and wellness into the world. It's long overdue that these values be brought into conventional construction and establish a new standard. At O2 Treehouse, that has always been our mission.

Engineering Stamp and Structural Details for Treewalkers

about 1 year ago

With much excitement and after lots of focused work, we have received our structural engineers’ stamp of approval for the Treewalkers Tent! Every structural detail has been elucidated in coordination with their engineering analysis and has the calculations to back it up. We think you’ll enjoy some of these snapshots of the structural submittal package, especially if you love design and engineering! 


With this milestone, we will have a baseline package for submittal to planning authorities for each location as needed. We’ve also achieved high standards for structural integrity with a basic wind speed of 115 MPH! So much work has gone into creating this modular, high-quality product and we are very proud of every detail here. Stay tuned because we’re excited to share updates as these connections come together in real life!

"Architecture of the Air" - Fabric Development with GuildWorks

about 1 year ago

Hello Fellow Treewalker!


We are so excited to announce that we are working with GuildWorks, who builds “Architecture of the Air.” Together we’re working on the development of our Treewalkers Tent (and hopefully many more fabric structures to come). They are a leading design & build team in the fabric membrane industry and their portfolio is highly inspiring. Have a look at their 2020 promo video below.



Thanks to their expertise, we have made several improvements to our tent design. We are working together to finalize the fabric shape, structure, and attachment hardware and are very happy with the steps we are making toward a high-quality product. We’re proud to be building an elegant, durable, and natural-feeling canopy that will gracefully complement the substructure. 



Our goal is to have the design finalized within the next two weeks, so that the canopy will arrive in sync with the completion of the carpentry for the exterior and interior of the Treewalkers Tent. We have completed the Tetratruss components for the foundation and have the Cedar slabs and Maple components ready to be cut and installed in the interior. 



The Treewalkers Tent is just the first fabric structure in our vision. We look forward to designing additional applications in the near future: new configurations for the glamping tent, community structures, bathhouses, treehouse interiors, accessories, and outdoor platforms that incorporate the elegance of fabric architecture. We also eagerly await the opportunity to assist GuildWorks with upcoming projects, synergizing our expertise to catalyze the many future opportunities within our shared fields! We are absolutely thrilled at the fruitful potential of this new partnership!



We’ll be sure to keep you updated as these developments come together! Thank you for your support so far and for following along. Please don’t hesitate to reach out! Wishing you the best!

Tetratruss islands going up in the trees!

about 1 year ago

Hello Treewalkers!


Our installation team is building the first structures to utilize the improved Tetratruss! This is the same system we are using for the Treewalkers glamping tent. In fact, the platforms share almost identical foundations to the glamping tent but in a smaller, open-air design. Features like this will also be part of the enchantment at Treewalkers locations.



A while back, one of our O2 custom clients asked for two Tetratruss decks connected by a suspension bridge in his backyard. This was a perfect opportunity for us to purchase Tetratruss materials and bulk process in tandem with the Treewalkers tent.  While we work with our fabric designers, Guildworks, on the final details for the canopy and hardware systems for the tent, our field crew has been able to construct a Tetratruss application and we’re loving how it looks so far. This is not only a good stepping stone toward the completion of the tent but also a great example of the many possibilities for Treewalkers Villages to come.  


Processed struts for the Treewalkers tent and the backyard platforms...


Platforms coming together in the trees...

The main features are now fully suspended by the trees and our team is moving on to the decking, entry system, and suspension bridge.



We’re really happy with how this project is shaping up! The Tetratruss is coming together smoothly and looking beautiful in these towering oak trees. The next steps for Treewalkers are assembling the glamping tent truss foundation in our shop and adding the walls, floor, and cabinetry while the canopy and its armature are prepared to be added as the last step. More updates soon to come - thank you for your support and for following along!

New Photos of Mandolin Meander Bridge

about 1 year ago

Hello!

We continue to be inspired by the ongoing support received from you and other supporters on StartEngine. Our campaign and your investments have allowed us to stay focused on our work of evolving O2 Treehouse with deliberate intention. Because of this, we are very grateful and excited to extend the length of our campaign and continue to build our network of changemakers and nature lovers here on StartEngine. 

There are exciting times ahead for O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers. The first Treewalkers structures are in progress and two O2 Custom projects are under construction with photos to come later this week. In the meantime, here are some new photos of a sculptural bridge installation on a private ecological preserve we just visited to add a few finishing touches.


Mandolin Meander

Photos by Alissa Kolom



The Mandolin Meander Bridge is a sculptural skywalk that pays homage to the local natural history and the previous bridges… originally Redwoods that fell over the canyon and then a landmark bridge built in the ‘70’s by Al Bolton with spiritual intention. The property as a whole has a long history, from habitation and early settlement by the Pomo, Yuki, Wappo, and Whilkut tribes and eventually a primitive then elegant home for the current family, who at one point used it as a nursery school and a camp for kids from the city. The land will be preserved forever as a conservation easement as a place for anyone to reconnect with the forest and learn about the local ecology. 



This creation was an epic collaboration among several creators. The custom-cast concrete pillars were designed by Andrew Holder, 3D rendered by Marianna Munguia-Chang, and then fabricated using CNC molds by Daniel Ticker and Carl Dietrich (associated with Concreteworks). “The end goal was to let nature in, not just creating visually beautiful shapes but to let moss and other forest creatures reclaim bits of concrete, make their homes, and claim the pillars as part of the forest itself.” 



The other unique collaboration was with Durapalm, who makes a variety of palm architectural products used here as the treads of the bridge. Palm lumber has traditionally been considered unusable, even though tons of trees are cut down every year on farms that produce coconuts, dates, and the like. When diverted from disposal or the burn pile, and in conjunction with eco-conscious farming, palm lumber is a substantial step toward more sustainable wood products and more beneficial livelihoods for farmers. 



Thank you for following along and spreading our mission to integrate human creations with the natural world. Don’t hesitate to reach out, and we will be in contact again soon!

New O2 Treehouse Photos: Seattle Blackbird and The Happy Head

about 1 year ago

Hello! 

Designing and building a treehouse is a lot of fun, but nothing is more rewarding than seeing the finished creation and happy treehousers enjoying life at elevation. Our crews have been busy building some of our favorite treehouses yet and we’re excited that we have shiny, new photos to share with you! Photographs are by Daniel Zetterstrom, Alissa Kolom, and JP Chapman. You can view more photos and details in our O2 Treehouse email newsletter


The Blackbird is a massive, soaring reflection room that flies high in the canopies of Seattle's urban rainforest.

The swoops and angles, LED trim, collapsing front window, basket lift into the docking station, and pocket bathroom are some of our favorite features of this treehouse.

It's hard to tell head from tail on this one...


The Happy Head is a whimsical fort that sparks imagination and out-of-the-box creativity. The structure incorporates a storybook red slide, webbed portholes and exquisite spiraling rafters that cast geometric shadows across the walls in the sunshine.

We love it when clients and visitors actively engage with our structures. Rather than create only features with clear one-way uses, we like to add elements that beg the question... "what do YOU see here?" Kids are especially good at tapping into the creative flow and not using things for "what they're meant for," and we love to let them do what they do best - soar into a world of imagination and possibility!


Meanwhile, one of our teams just arrived in Louisiana to build an adventure base, perched above the swamps of the bayou, and the Oakland shop is busy prepping Tetratruss struts for our first Treewalkers tents! 

 

We can’t wait to share more news and photos with you soon!
 

Best wishes,

Dustin, The O2 Treehouse & Treewalkers Team

Improved Tetratruss Design Moving into Production!

about 1 year ago

Hello!

We’ve had our heads deep in design recently and are excited to share some fresh new developments with you! 

We're currently phasing Tetratruss 5.0 to life! After working in collaboration with our structural engineers to refine and strengthen the previous Tetratruss design*, we have arrived at an improved strut and hub system using the same modular concept - but now with even greater structural resilience. We’ve increased the truss system load capacity and expanded the range of achievable installation locations as well — such amazing news! 



*Tetratruss refresher: The Tetratruss is the modular strut and hub truss system developed by O2 Treehouse to support elevated structures. It's the geometric foundation you can see in some of our favorite O2 Treehouses, and it forms the base of the Treewalkers glamping structure. It will also support the connective tissue of our Treewalkers Villages - stairways, walkways, and elevated platforms. It's a leap forward in design from wood beam systems used in standard construction because of its modular nature and strength to material ratio.



Our re-work of the Tetratruss design began when we ran wind-load tests on the Treewalkers tent. Stress that was previously insignificant for house-shaped structures became significant with the addition of 20 ft. canopy walls. In 90mph+ wind gusts we saw extreme torque on specific pinch points. With our desire to create structures that can live in locations with some of the more extreme climate events, we decided it was best to address these points by adjusting the truss geometry rather than using reinforced or joint-specific hardware - working smarter, not harder. While it was a challenging design hurdle, we have now arrived at a superior product that will dramatically increase the load capacity and the design possibilities for the Tetratruss. 

The new hub design! We’re especially thrilled about the new ball-and-socket rigging connection point that will provide the most efficient weight-loading in various rigging scenarios:



After an extended design phase, we’re very excited to be moving forward with construction and fabrication. We’ve begun processing wood for the struts and assembling hub components. With several premiere structures to be built this summer, and our first large-scale Treewalkers Village builds planned for the Fall, we're off to the races!

Thanks so much for your continued support - we are so grateful for you, our loyal community. Our momentum is growing stronger by the day and we look forward to sharing more exciting developments with you very soon, so stay tuned!


In Gratitude,

Dustin & the O2 Treehouse Team

250k Reached, New Offering Max, and O2T News!

over 1 year ago

Hello from O2 Treehouse!

We were so thrilled when we reached our $250k initial investment max back in January, and we are even more excited to share with you that we have now reopened investments up to $1.07M! Thank you to all who have supported us and helped us get this far; we have a lot of fun news and substantial developments to share with you! 


Highlights from our recent custom treehouse projects...

We are currently wrapping up one of the largest and most expansive O2 Treehouse projects yet… a three-story temple of play, linked to two leaf-shaped decks and a 100 ft. bridge that crosses over a backyard creek and gully. We’ll have to share more details in an upcoming update as it nears completion! 



We’re currently wrapping up the design and beginning the prototyping of a stunning, glass, geodesic sphere treehouse to be installed this summer in North Carolina. This structure will be quite the shimmering beauty and will host hundreds of travelers in an otherworldly and ethereal sanctuary in the beautiful hardwood canopy near Pisgah National Forest. 



Prefabrication has commenced on our next project: a bayou treehouse and a multi-level shipping container lounge in Louisiana. Its design honors the best of New Orleans' historical architecture combined with the creative reuse of modern materials. The structures will be replete with reclaimed window walls, hangout spaces galore, and a focus on magnification of the surrounding beauty and mystery. We can't wait to show you how this one turns out.


In Treewalkers news...

  1. We have focused on 5 partners to open the first Treewalkers Villages over the next two years and we are beyond excited to launch these world-class locations! Each has begun the permitting and infrastructure development process while we work together on operation and design details.

  2. The first Treewalkers pilot structures will be iteratively built on the West and East Coast this summer, as we refine and optimize tent production and build the infrastructure for our premiere Treewalkers Villages. We have four to six private owners lined up to proudly purchase these initial Treewalkers structures and be the first to experience one of their own. Once our engineering tests are complete we will begin prefabrication.

  3. We have continued to connect and build strong ties with some of the best hospitality professionals in the industry to develop the core framework of the Treewalkers international hospitality brand from legal structure to daily operation details. We’ve partnered with an attorney who has more than a decade of corporate hospitality experience to formalize our operating and license agreements.

  4. In product development news, we have been moving through rigorous engineering tests and making adjustments to ensure that our structures will be safe in all climatic conditions around the world. Our design team is refining details and integrating reinforcements specifically for high wind speed events now.

  5. We have increased our production capacity for Treewalkers and O2 Treehouse through expansion of the workable real estate in our production facility. We poured new concrete slabs and are installing high voltage power connections and vertical storage racks. All of the pieces are coming together and now it’s go time!  



As we welcome investors throughout the extension of this raise, we will be able to see Treewalkers through to its physical launch in multiple locations. To get there we will continue our research and development, expansion of production capacity, and progress on our legal foundation including obtaining additional intellectual property. Our team will also proceed with the development of our digital systems and bringing the first Treewalkers Villages to life! 

This campaign milestone marks the beginning of a new phase for O2 Treehouse and Treewalkers and we are confident that this year will be our best year yet! We have diligently laid our foundation and are now pushing forward with many exciting and tangible developments. We will be sure to keep you updated with the details. Thank you for your support throughout this process! 

Everyone at O2 Treehouse wishes you an abundant spring and summer season -  we hope you find time to connect with nature and everything that gives you life and energy. We’ll be in touch again soon!!


Gratefully, 

Dustin & The O2 Treehouse Team

Treewalkers First Production Run

over 1 year ago

Exciting advancements happening here at O2 Treehouse ~ our structural engineering and design specifications are nearing completion, and we are preparing our workshop to house the first prefabricated Treewalkers structures! We have partnered with four awesome locales in Northern California to host the premiere Treewalkers tents, with the goal of iterating the design toward an easily reproducible finished product. One of these sites will be a glorious Oak/Redwood grove with a stunning view - see below!



We plan to build these first few tents over the next couple of months as our first official Treewalkers camps begin infrastructure development. Below is a preliminary layout of the pre-fabrication of the first structure in our workshop, however, we just got some amazing news that will change this layout significantly - permission to expand into additional spaces! More space = more Treewalkers tents coming soon to a forest near you :)



A few of our custom O2 Treehouse projects currently in the pipeline will utilize the Tetratruss structural system (talk about happy coincidences!) so we will soon be mass ordering the laser-cut metal and other materials for maximum efficiency and going to town! 

Thank you so much for the incredible support that you, our loyal investors, followers and friends, have provided to get us where we are today. We are thrilled beyond belief to soar into this next phase, and we can't wait to share more exciting developments and results with you along the way!

Strong Start to 2021!

over 1 year ago

Happy New Year all!


In the Treehouse world, the year is shaping up to look spectacular! In Treewalkers news, we are working towards an agreement and design-build schedule for the first-ever Treewalkers Village!


Meanwhile, we have been charging forward with several stellar O2 Treehouse custom projects. Our install team is currently in Occidental, CA working on this magical abode:


Loading out of prefabrication in the shop and moving into the installation phase is the Palo Alto dream playground:


And up next in the design queue is the tensegrity tree! We completed a lidar tree scan for this one consisting of very precise plot points for each leaf and branch.



Though 2021 has been off to a bit of a weird start already, we hope that wherever you are in the world, you are able to find strength, renewal and grounding, as you grow deep roots and plant a sturdy foundation for the year ahead.


In gratitude,
Dustin & the O2 Treehouse & Treewalkers Teams

We've Reached the $200k Milestone!

almost 2 years ago

We've just reached $200k in funding! Thanks so much to all of our investors and followers for your support! What an epic milestone to reach as we prepare to roll into a hopefully better and brighter 2021.



We've come so far since our campaign launched in late September!
Our gratitude and enthusiasm keep us dedicated to our mission every day. We are so appreciative of the opportunity to connect with you, our investors, and to leap forward in the development of our global, eco-architecture vision! We've laid the foundation for sustainable business expansion, product development, and internal operations. We've connected with a wide variety of dedicated creators and business professionals interested in collaborating on our vision in a variety of capacities. And with much excitement, we've built an extensive list of potential, phenomenal Treewalkers locations that has already reached way beyond our expectations!

Moving forward, our next steps are to push forward with the completion of 2-3 prototypes and begin master plans of the first official Treewalkers locations for local permitting approval. For product development, we're sourcing the materials for the canvas tent and interior furnishings while arranging for construction. For the launch of the first official locations, we are scheduling site visits where we will take laser scans of all of the trees in order to design the first complete forms.

At the same time, our custom treehouse production schedule has been rocking! There are three epic treehouses currently in pre-fab and installation phases, and they are some of our most exciting and unique designs to date. We also recently constructed one of our very favorite treehouses yet, and it's about ready to fly like a hawk in a forest canopy near Seattle. We look forward to sharing more with you on these projects as they progress!

Thank you again for supporting O2 Treehouse and our mission to inspire and reconnect more humans with nature. Wishing you all happy, safe, cozy holidays, and hope that the new year brings you renewal, fresh opportunities, and joyful abundance.

Gratefully,
Dustin and the O2 Treehouse Team

Visual Plan Sets Now Ready for Manufacturing of the Treewalkers Glamping Tent

almost 2 years ago

We're really excited to share with you part of the detailed plan set of the Treewalkers Glamping Tent, now ready for manufacture! With the investment raised on StartEngine so far, we have been able to hire an architectural designer who specializes in tension fabric structures: Nick Crylen.

We are getting close to the first batch of Treewalkers glamping tents!



Treewalkers Franchise Location: Finger Lakes, NY

almost 2 years ago

Hi friends!

We are excited to announce that one of our first Treewalkers locations will be nestled between the Seneca and Cayuga Finger Lakes in Hector, NY, close to lots of small towns full of charm. Jackie and Christopher want to have at least 4 tents on their site in the Finger Lake National Forest region. They have the opportunity to provide a plethora of invigorating experiences: numerous waterfalls, diverse forests, excellent hiking trails, farm-to-table cuisine offerings, local vineyards, the Finger Lakes Beer Trail, hot air balloons, sailing, hunting, fishing, and mushroom foraging. This region will be a nature-lover’s dream getaway for exploration, restoration, and relaxation. 


Fall Foliage (fingerlakestravelny.com)


These enthusiastic future Treewalkers not only have an amazing 27 acre forested location, but an astounding vision for turning this camp into a well-rounded and wholesome experience. Jackie and Christopher are hoping to integrate a sauna, massage studio, communal kitchen, and a covered pavilion for activities into their camp in addition to the amenities that this site will have at the start! 

Letchworth State Park Foliage and Waterfall (newyorkupstate.com)


Christopher most recently founded his own Massage Therapy and Cranio-Sacral Therapy business, after many years as a farmer and carpenter. Jackie is a longtime local and has practiced land surveying and viticulture in the Finger Lakes. She spent a while traveling to and living in other amazing destinations, but still found the area to be her favorite home and now enjoys sharing its lovely features with the travelers she meets. The two of them are both passionate about connecting visitors to the best experiences that the land and locals have to offer!


Wine and Viticulture (fingerlakes1.com)


The story of how they found their land illustrates how their dreams are meant to come alive, but we will save that story for them to personally share. They have been patiently and respectfully preparing the land to host their retreat space and Treewalkers camp. They will be using the trees they had to clear as lumber to build the structures on site, and even took a timber framing course to learn how to use the timber sustainably. We are thrilled to partner with such an amazing team for one of our first Treewalkers locations, co-creating our shared dream of sustainable travel and adventure!


Thick Forests Abound (Thomas Eisman)


Thank you for continuing to follow our journey! Lots more exciting news to come!

Vacations to the Great Outdoors is the New Normal

almost 2 years ago

The events of 2020 (we’re looking at you, coronavirus) have changed so much about the way we live our lives, so it’s no surprise that this global pandemic is having a huge impact on the way we travel. According to the recent Think with Google article “Safe Escapes: How Consumers Are Traveling during the Pandemic,” three major trends emerged during the past few months. Travelers are not straying far from home, they are looking for outdoor adventures, and they are opting for road trips versus flying.

For obvious reasons, many people are looking for ways to get a new perspective, a change of scenery, an escape from everyday life without taking unnecessary health risks. Vacations in the great outdoors check all the boxes.

Compared to the same period in 2019, Google searches for information on places to go camping soared during the summer of 2020. Searches for “campgrounds in” were up more than 70% over last year and “glamping near me” saw a whopping 200% increase over last summer.

In addition to pitching tents, many travelers are looking to book vacation rentals. In one Google survey, 64% of US adults who work from home at this time said they are likely to book a nearby vacation rental between now and the end of 2020. Some Google searches that have seen huge increases over 2019:

  • “Beach rental” (up more than 100%)
  • “Cabins for rent” (up more than 100%)
  • “Lake house rental (up more than 200%)


While we can’t know when the need for Covid-safe travel will end, we can anticipate that the desire to escape our busy day-to-day routines and reconnect with the natural world is here to stay.

Treehouses in a Pandemic?!

almost 2 years ago

One of many notable trends during the coronavirus pandemic has been a huge increase in home renovations. With the realization that the pandemic would not be going away quickly, many homeowners have sought to create additional space for remote working or learning, or just as a retreat to get away from the chaos of everyday life. And O2 Treehouse has been rising to the occasion. 

According to a New York Times article, home renovation professionals who list their services on the remodeling website Houzz reported that the number of requests for home extensions and additions in June 2020 was up 52% from the same time in 2019. The article notes that a number of homeowners have opted to create more space by constructing a custom shed to use as a home office or playroom. The Colorado-based company Studio Shed reported a 500 percent increase in sales from May 2019 to May 2020. At O2 Treehouse, we have been busier than ever since the pandemic started. For the first time, we have two treehouse installations in process, two in prefabrication, and a backlog into 2022.

But really, why build a shed when you can have a treehouse? Judging by the surge in O2 Treehouse’s custom treehouse business during the pandemic, many homeowners have realized the many benefits of a treehouse as a home addition, a refuge, a way to connect with nature in their own backyard.

Our Team is Growing!

almost 2 years ago

From the moment our campaign launched, our inboxes have been overflowing with messages from extraordinary individuals excited to offer up their expertise to O2T and Treewalkers. We are thrilled to be able to introduce you to a few of the stellar folks who have since joined our team as advisors in such key areas as Platform and Organizational Design, Digital Storytelling, and Boutique Hospitality.

The Treehouse Revolution

almost 2 years 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
