NOTE:

The idea for the tea houses originated years ago, when the
owner and his young daughter explored the remote hills surrounding their
Silicon Valley home, discovering an idyllic setting below a ridge, under a
grove of large California Live Oak trees. At first, the family thought the setting would be perfect for a tree
house. Years later, the vision was realized as
three individual tea houses, places where one could simply retreat into nature.
