In my last post, Intergalactic tour, I wrote about touring Epic System Corporation’s Intergalactic Headquarters. One of the places we visited on our tour was Endor. Endor is a Epic’s Tree House. It is part of Campus I, but is a separate structure. It is, as the name implies, a tree house. It is of and amongst the trees and my first reactions was “ooooh I want one!”
The Tree House is something that looks like a kid’s hideout. It is made of reclaimed, mis-matched wood and looks from the exterior as though it is a bit off kilter. It is, however, quite sturdy and inside you can see that the rooms are all true.
As you approach you gain access to the Tree House by crossing a rope bridge. Once across the bridge you walk around the porch to the the door. Inside there is a main floor with a table and chairs, a second-floor loft with a swing chair, and a tower. The tower is just large enough to allow one person to climb up and look out at the woods of pine trees.
Endor, the Tree House, is really designed as a place to retreat. Groups can book time in the Tree House, where the sign outside proclaims no pagers or cell phones. It is a place to meet and brainstorm without interruptions.
Overall I just think a tree house would be a great artist’s studio… but if you have been following my blog for a while you will know I live with a prairie in my back yard. I just don’t have the trees for such a tree house, so while it would be fun to have my very own tree house I will just have to continue to enjoy my prairie photo studio!
