A family treehouse becomes a cozy backyard overnight rental in Burlingame, California.
“The shape of this 100-year-old California coast live oak just begged to hold a tree house. Although it took a while to get the project started, the Studebaker family in Burlingame, California, worked together to build a special and soothing place. “Thinking back, I found motivation from a combination of just being a good dad and the opportunity to do something creative and highly original,” says Doug Studebaker. “Each of our three kids helped out from time to time, and in this way built up a little sweat equity and pride in the project.”Although the backyard tree house has served the family well, Linda and Doug Studebaker now rent it out to visitors.”
Tammy and Logan are back in California – but now living on a ranch near Mount Shasta.
“On Tuesday, September 4 we moved from Portland, Oregon to the ranch. My sweet husband, Logan, grew up on a cattle ranch in northern California, about twelve miles east of Yreka. The ranch is nestled in a small valley called Little Shasta and it’s one of my favorite places on the planet because it’s so beautiful.
Originally, we had planned on moving to Chico in a few months. However, we’ve always wanted to live in a rural area and this is the perfect time to give it a try. We’re trying to be open to where life takes us and if we like living on the ranch we’ll stay. For now, we’re going to enjoy the ranch and time with family. Rural living is going to be a really fun adventure!”
