The Cinder Cone

This right here is what I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. I’d always be building tree houses in the woods and skate ramps in the driveway, and here I am nearly 20 years later, still trying to do the same thing (No trees or driveways in Shanghai makes this difficult).

During the spring of 2014, a group of close friends got together and started this project out in Skamania County, Washington. They’ve dubbed the multi-platform treehouse, wood-fired hot tub and skate  bowl as The Cinder Cone. It’s home to Foster Huntington, with one tree house being his home and the other, his studio. Some old friends of mine put helped film this short documentary (via Farm League), showing just what it takes to create paradise.

Be sure to learn more about this year-long project by checking out Foster’s personal site: A Restless Transplant and help fund The Cinder Cone book on Kickstarter.
