Isaac's Tree House
Inspired by Isaac's imagination, we created a secret haven that is creative, therapeutic, and where neighbors and friends are excited to join him.
Isaac, age 10, who lives with cystic fibrosis, feels isolated from friends — and has a strong desire to play in nature. He imagined a special place in his family’s wooded property with some very specific and unique features that will encourage friends and family to visit.
This elevated tree house features hammocks, a deck with furniture for socializing, a zip line, climbing holds and pulley system to keep him active, and his favorite feature: a library and movable bookcase leading to a secret escape.
As well as countering attention deficit disorder common in young people, nature play increases creativity, responsibility, and confidence. Additionally, increasing physical play will support increased heart, muscle, and lung function, the latter critical for those with cystic fibrosis.
