Oregon Lookout Tower & Treehouse


Sandy, Oregon

Get ready to be a kid again in this custom lookout tower and “treehouse” project in Sandy, Oregon! Designed and built in collaboration with the DC Structures team, this 56 ft. high structure is the fourth project we’ve completed for these clients and one of the most unique developments to grace our portfolio.

These clients started with a custom building design, which the DC Structures team modeled to perfection before turning it into a prefabricated building package. Our crew then stepped in to provide framing and siding, general contracting, and even bunk bed fabrication—a first for our team—for this impressive build.

Using premium Douglas fir timbers, steel bracing systems and reinforcements, and traditional timber frame joinery, we created a superior framing system for this lookout tower and treehouse that provides long-term stability, beauty, and value. From the exterior heavy timber staircase, our clients and guests can access a 600 sq. ft. platform on the second story and a 577 sq. ft. ADU and bunk room with a wrap-around deck on the top floor. Inside the third-level living space, you’ll find a modern kitchenette, a bunk area, a comfortable living room, and a full bathroom—all with stunning views of Mt. Hood and the surrounding forest. From overnight stays to watch parties and more, this lookout tower and treehouse provides a versatile and entertaining space that our clients can enjoy 365 days of the year.
