Log Loft: Picturesque Tree House for Kids & Adults Alike


Reclaimed and blown-down local timber come back together in this eccentric, organic and playful home – as its lead architect David Rasmussen jovially puts it: “There is always a place for fun and frivolity in architecture!”

Green Line Architects specializes in rural retreats that respond to nature in terms of both environmental sustainability and physical context – this work is no exception.

Sheathing and siding were made of locally-sawn white pine and wavy-edge cedar, reinforcing the naturally-curved aesthetic of the structure.

While it might look like a hodgepodge abode, the building was carefully modeled in 3D computer systems ahead of time – then intentionally-twisted logs were fused into the construction on site.
