5/30/13: This week’s local Good Times lead article “Out On A Limb” is all about tree houses. The article includes the 1999 tree house built by Santa Cruz County Builder, owned by Thomas Kern, here in Santa Cruz.
From the article:
At least one Santa Cruz treehouse has made it into a Nelson book: a nearly 400-square-foot office built on commission by Santa Cruz County Builders owner Thomas Kern in 1999. The Boulder Creek building is perched 50 feet up in a redwood and is reached by a suspension bridge that’s 42 feet high.
The domicile cost its owners $35,000, which Kern says was “pretty much a break-even job in terms of labor and cost of materials.”
“That’s a lot of money to spend on what’s basically a glorified tree fort,” he says, “but if you’ve got the money, what a great way to spend it.”
