Have you ever dreamed of living on a tropical island in a treehouse like Robinson Crusoe? It’s a dream many of us have imagined. Kristie Wolfe bought land in Hawaii sight-unseen for just $8,000. A year later, with the help of her mother, she built her bamboo treehouse. It took two months and $11,000 to build initially. Now the home is available to rent on Airbnb.com.
See more photos of the treehouse on Kristie’s Instagram. Photo by Kristie.
Kirsten Dirksen toured the house with Kristie back in 2014 (video below). For more great tiny house tour videos follow Kirsten on YouTube.
Here’s what the house looks like as a vacation rental (video below). To see how the house was built visit Kristie’s Channel on YouTube.
