it takes an army to build a treehouse like this one.
a small one, precise, extremely talented, hard-working,
the insanely generous sort of army.
we’re talking about:
shaun owens-case (stoneblitzer.com)
tyler peterson (stoneblitzer.com)
steven teichelman (threefold / steventeichelman.com)
angela finney-hoffman (post27store.com)
bladon connor (bladonconner.com)
(and a slew of others who worked tirelessly to turn a dead tree into an beautiful house for everyone to enjoy)
and it takes a visionary.
(our friend angela of post27 wanted to the key project for her ARTCAMP idea
to be a treehouse…)
I was thinking the ‘american girl’ sort. maybe a platform. a rope bucket?
she- and her friends- had other plans in mind…
over the next few weeks this blog will be featuring each of these amazing
folks- and their businesses individually.
check out just one of their amazing projects-
the treehouse at Camp Wandawega
in CHICAGO HOME AND GARDEN this month:
this is one small (yet impressive) example of their work in collaboration.
the closing line in the story that i think sums it up about this entire of selfless, enormously talented friends:
“ITS RARE TO FIND FOLKS SO SELFLESS THAT THEY WOULD LITERALLY BUILD YOU A CABIN IN THE SKY AND ASK FOR NOTHING IN RETURN. AND THESE FOLKS ARENT YOUR AVERAGE BUILDERS, BUT AMAZING, VISIONARY DESIGNERS. ITS HUMBLING BEYOND WORDS.”
thank you all.
we, Wandawega, and all the folks that come share this place with us are forever indebted to you.
