Our Treehouse Remodel

Let me just start to say graphic design and interior design are very different. I'm recently married and my husband and I were fortunate to remodel and move into a home.

The founder of The Woodlands, oilman George Mitchell, envisioned life in The Woodlands surrounded by trees and the homes to sort of "melt" into the landscape. Mitchell’s son, architect Scott Mitchell, ran the design-build firm Life Forms and about 3,000 Life Forms homes are now sprinkled throughout The Woodlands. Ours being one of them! 

Built in the 80’s, we immediately feel in love with the architectural style and how it seemed to be a part of the woods, rather than looking like they're fighting it. With it’s structure, multiple porches, open floor plan, and timber exterior – it only seemed fitting to call it our “treehouse.” Of course moving into a 30 year-old home, there were more than a few updates. First things first — we knew we had to remove the carpet and update the paint. Later, we came to some other renovations: new roofing, sprinter system, new windows, new appliances, etc. But lets move onto the fun stuff!
