Willy Brown & Eddie Woods … Stamping Ground, Scott County

This rustic-style treehouse sits high atop a ridge in the hilly farmland of northern Scott county. It centers around a large hickory tree, encircled by exterior stairs and decks.
The treehouse was built out of salvaged material, barn wood, old door and windows; other items, like the roof, were purchased. Michael Rose, who was a helper at the farm, wanted to design and build a project to learn a bit about building construction. Now, Rose has his own home repair company in Lexington, but he loves to use the treehouse when he has time to visit the farm.
The treehouse is used for sleep-overs on occasion, and as an observation point on the farm. To reach the treehouse, you first walk along a tractor path past gorgeous gardens, a specially designed glass house, and a couple if intriguing ponds. Willy Brown says, “I love the aesthetics of it; it has become another farm landmark – a destination as well as a conversation point.”
