“Treehouse” residence in Weaverville NC built by Adam Laufer

This two-bedroom two-bath “treehouse” in Weaverville, NC was built by Adam Laufer and his crew in 2004. The home isn’t actually built around a tree, but it’s a complicated three-floor home with three levels of decks, built on piers on a very steep slope. It’s surrounded closely by trees on east and west, giving residents and visitors the serene feeling of being in a treehouse.

The interior is formaldehyde-free, made of many sustainable materials, with solar hot water heating. The interior showcases different types of wood, including local cherry, locust and poplar.
