Schuyler Silva fell in love with engineering and set design while pursuing his Masters of Fine Arts at the University of Illinois and returned to his Portland, Oregon hometown to combine his skills with his love of nature and landscaping. Elevated Living provides a turn-key treehouse from custom design and manufacture to installation and annual inspections.

"People love the Office," Silva says. "It's a private space that can be used as a home office or craft studio."
Silva's basic structures can be manufactured off-site and installed within three days. "There are endless possibilities of customization from the basic structure," Silva says. "Enclosed or open; one story or two; slides or ladders. Anything is possible."
Silva and his crew are working with Portland Parks and Recreation on a public treehouse.
