Benefiting from varied stone and gravel hardscapes, this back yard is used in many ways. Transitions are marked with a change in structure of paths, walls, and features. The dining area is defined by a seat wall that ends where the fire feature area starts. Garden beds surround the space as an accent, softening the space. A rugged yet warm design for a relatively small back yard. Photo Credit: Linda Oyama Bryan

Watch a 3-1/2 minute video about this tree house at www.carolinatimberworks.com/videos Search for “problems with tree houses” and Google will serve up 37,100,000 results: it’s impossible not to harm the trees, trees grow over time, trees die, there aren’t the right trees where you’d really like to have a tree house… Our take on the tree house solves these problems. Carolina Timberworks’ two and a half story Tree House Timber Frame Tower is an engineered and architecturally designed kit that doesn’t rely on trees for support. This allows you to site your tree house on the best spot on your property instead of being limited to where the right trees are. No trees? No problem. Ever wanted to spend an afternoon hanging out in a fire tower gazing out over the forest and valleys? Got an amazing view if only you were 25’ higher? Brilliant, right?

This client had a very shady spot that would not dry out or grow grass. They wanted to cleanup the side of the house and make it more attractive. We installed a bed of river rock surrounded by over sized cobblestone with natural stepping stones. It gave the space a clean look and made it a nice pathway from getting from the front yard to the back with out getting your shoes dirty.
