Island Treehouse traditional exterior

Island Treehouse

The treehouse was too big for the existing trees on the property so it was placed at the edge of a precipice so that you feel like you are in the trees from inside

How did you achieve the variation in the color of the shingles?

The variation is a natural occurrence when hand dipped in Australian Timber Oil by Cabot and the excess is brushed off with a stiff bristled brush. I am attaching a photo of the very lengthy process.

It looks interesting! The more I am asked and the more I look at exteriors, the less I see I like because so many are just flat front boxes with a garage that sticks out or a porch to break the lines.
