Man Quits Lucrative NYC Job, Builds Treehouse Of His “Childhood Dreams”
In 2011, Foster Huntington did something that many people only dream about. He quit his day job, bought a Volkswagen van, and escaped the urban jungle of New York City. Afterwards, he wandered the country and published multiple photo books, including one that’s aptly-titled Home Is Where You Park It. Huntington also introduced the popular hashtag #vanlife, and he inspired countless people with his beautifully-captured adventures.
Three years of nomadic travels later, the 27-year-old decided to settle down. He and a group of friends got together and built a treehouse in western Washington near the Oregon border. Huntington’s home in the trees, which he has dubbed “The Cinder Cone” due to it being situated on a dead volcano, took a year to build. He filmed and photographed the construction and plans to publish the photos in a book; an interesting video documenting the process is below.
“I could’ve bought a house. But this is so much better. For me, it’s realizing a childhood dream.”, Foster told NY Times.
