There has been a bit of a love story brewing in Seattle between Emily (Pete’s daughter) and Patrick, who is one of the carpenter’s from NT&S. We met Patrick in Ohio when we did the Treehouse Brewery for the Mooney’s and he has since become part of the traveling road crew and relocated to Seattle. After dating for a few years, the time had come for them to find a place to live together and they found a serene tree-filled spot in Issaquah, Wash., not far from Treehouse Point.
Pete had decided to give the gift of what else? A treehouse. There was a small treehouse located at Treehouse Point called the “bird blind” that had to be moved and this became part of the structure that would now go and live with Pat & Em, but not before building a very high and large deck with built in bar.
My job was relatively easy as I already know the clients and had a sense of their history. Both wanted a party atmosphere where their friends and family could come and unwind. I knew Emily had lived in Spain and Turkey and loved the patterns and colors of those regions, so I decided to go with an Andalusian themed design.
