Owner of TreeHouse Point
Pete

Pete

Pete became excited about treehouses at age 5 when his dad built him a tree fort behind the garage of their New Jersey home. As he grew up, the carpenter and homebuilder inside could not be silenced, and with an eye to become "the treehouse guy," he embarked on a unique career path. In addition to owning TreeHouse Point & Nelson Treehouse and Supply, as well as authoring six books, his latest endeavor was hosting the hit television series, Treehouse Masters, on Animal Planet. He lives with his wife, Judy, in Fall City, WA and has three adult children with whom he happily works daily in the trees. Plus the newest addition, his first grandson!

When she's not busy brainstorming regarding the operations of TreeHouse Point or traveling with Pete, Judy loves to cook, play soccer, and hike with her friends. She met and married Pete several decades ago and loves being mom to their three fantastic kids, three dogs, a large cat, and a bunch of chickens.

Inga

Inga

I am a northwest native and grew up hiking, skiing, and fishing in the mountains and waters around Puget Sound. I studied biology in college and worked as an ornithologist and field biologist for many years. I moved to Fall City in 1997 with my husband and two children. In 2010 I became certified to teach yoga - I have been practicing yoga most of my life as my mother was a yogi and I was exposed to it at a young age. It is my dream to practice and share yoga in nature. The Pond Room at Treehouse Point, surrounded by trees and water, fulfills this dream. I currently make jewelry to sell at local shops and markets including Treehouse Point.

Wilderness Protector at TreeHouse Point
Lorraine

Lorraine

Through all things horticultural, Lorraine is forever at home in the forest. Her love of treehouses begins with the trees and moves up through the crown, nestles in and around some attuned woodwork, and climbs a spiral staircase back down to the ground. Trained as a gardener, her focus is on the health of the understory, but she loves to add a few gardening touches to highlight the diversity of plants in the region and give a form of communication amongst the trees. Lorraine is a proud supporter of the people and dreams that make up THP and can be found peeking out from the Cedars and Sword Ferns that abound.
