Existing Kiddie Treehouse is muse for Rancher Expansion

Inspired by a treehouse tiny house design this stunning home gave a 1950s rancher style home a modern update. Designed by Architect Stephen Moser this home located on the western edge of Saxon Woods Park in New York, USA shows what you can do with a simple vision. The clients wanted their Mamaroneck house to expand horizontally so they could accommodate a new office, a family room, and a pool along with a new master suite. The homeowner's inspiration came from a treehouse tiny house design on stilts that was built for their grandchildren. With this vision, the renovation on their rancher style house served as ideas for the building materials the interior spaces and the exterior silhouette for the entire design. You will want to take a look at the site for the photo gallery on this rancher renovation.

The lot for this log home floor plan is shaped like the number 4 without the extended arm of the number and can be accessed from the street by the vertical leg of the four. The other three sides of the tiny treehouse house inspired home are surrounded by parkland. With the natural surrounding of this unique renovation, the owners wanted their home to flow with its natural surrounding treescape. The driveway for this home travels up the leg of the four before it curves around to the corner to the left, The renovated home is positioned diagonally across this section of the lot, which creates a triangular turn around for the cars. It is from this vantage point that you can see the tiny treehouse house inspired elements that are visible from the double trunk steel support posts on the corner of the entry overhang. Once inside the renovated home, you will find a louvered wood wall that creates a separation from the foyer to the new glass that is wrapped around the family room, and this is where the wood treehouse tiny house influence starts to take place. The renovation for this tiny treehouse house inspired renovation includes a new pool Solarium that features the same warm wood ceilings as the office along with a wood wall that adds appeal.
