The Mohicans, have a unique collection of treehouses and cabins nestled in the quiet woods of Ohio’s Amish country 70 miles northeast of Columbus, Ohio. Kevin and Laura Mooney conceived of this novel resort concept after viewing the Discovery Channel’s “Treehouse Masters” show.
These arboreal structures sport a rustic appearance but they are masterfully crafted works of art with many features, such as passive solar, radiant heat, on-demand hot water and air conditioning.
As believers in respecting and protecting the environment, the Mooneys have made wide use of repurposed materials such as vintage barn siding, windows and doors, local materials including wood milled on-site, and labor. Most of the Amish craftsmen employed by the resort live within an eight-mile radius of the property.
The Silver Bullet Airstream Treehouse in the newest addition to The Mohican collection. A long-time admirer of the classic aerodynamic aluminum trailers, Kevin purchased the 1978 31-foot Airstream online about a year ago and began the extensive project of repurposing it as a state-of-the-art luxury treehouse. Mounted 25 feet above ground on a platform supported by oak and pine trees, the Silver Bullet nicely reflects the Mooney mission of sustainability and style.
The iconic trailer features reclaimed and recycled hardwood barn siding walls, floors and cabinets plus indoor and outdoor showers, a skylight and a sauna. It is an altogether elegant blending of natural materials and aluminum.
