Who would have thought that this 388 square feet fire lookout tower that sits on 160 acres, soaring 4-stories above the ground can become one of the most amazing houses ever built?

Treehouse Fire Lookout

When friends Dabney and Alan finished building their off-grid fire lookout tower in 2010, they never thought of staying there permanently. But just a year ago, both of them decided to quit their jobs and live there permanently. This just shows how special and how amazing this house is to them, right?

The house is located at Tiller, Oregon. The main level of the tower has running water, solar powered electricity and everything that you will need in day-to-day living.

For more details about this amazing house and why Dabney and Alan decided to live there for good, watch the video below.

    Thats amazing! I guess anybody could build anything they want it to be, as long as they have money to spend on the project. Sounds fun!

  9. The view is so amazing. I’m not sure if I could be as daring, though.

  10. Awesome house! I love all the large windows giving them a full 360 degree view of the beauty outside. I wish I could live in a house like that!

  11. This would be a dream come true for me. I love tiny house living lifestyle, especially off the grid type. I would get so much writing done from a view like that.

  12. Very cool! Looks like an amazing view. I want to build something like this one day after I save up enough.

    Plus, if there is ever a zombie apocalypse, it seems like it would stand up 🙂

    I dream of paying off my house and going off grid. I’m not sure it’s going to happen but I hope it’ll be paid off in less than 10 years. Then I want to work on getting it off grid. 🙂

  14. I wouldn’t mind living off grid especially that beautiful. What a beauty.

  15. Wow! And yes, that view is definitely amazing.

  16. What an amazing view! I would be afraid of falling off though (afraid of heights) so I don’t know if I could live there all the time. So peaceful.

  17. Kisa Johnson says:

    Ohh, that’s so pretty! I’d be afraid of a house just up on wood like that. So I’d want metal under it too or something to keep it secure enough. I always wanted to live up in trees… but I’d need internet and an easy way to get all my mail. Hahaha

  18. Kathy says:

    That’s really beautiful. That view would certainly be amazing. I would love to have a place like that.

  19. This is an amazing house. I don’t think that I could live without a bathroom though or to take a shower outside, especially during the winter.
