This photographer’s incredible tree house is a childhood dream come true

Foster Huntington isn’t afraid to follow his dreams. In 2011, the photographer quit his job in New York, bought a VW van and hit the road. After three years living as a nomad (and the creation of a book entitled Home Is Where You Park It), he was ready to start his next dream: Build a fantasy tree house and set down roots. After sketching out several ideas with designer friends, he started building in the spring of 2014 on family-owned property in Skamania, Washington. Huntington’s dream home, aptly named Cinder Cone, comes with a skate park, workshop, and outdoor wood-fired soak tub—all overlooking the Columbia River Gorge.
