Chamber After Hours event set for TreeHouse Point

The Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce will hold its April After Hours event at TreeHouse Point, a Fall City family’s arboreal getaway. The after hours event is planned for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, at the event center and retreat, located at 6922 Preston-Fall City Rd. S.E.

Discovering their dream property two years ago, Valley residents Pete and Judy Nelson created TreeHouse Point on five picturesque acres. They converted the property’s house into a cozy inn, renovated a carpenter’s shop, and built scenic trails down to the river. Pete teaches the craft of treehouse building, while Judy plans and hosts private events and celebrations.

The center is already a magnet for would-be treehouse builders, who come from all over for workshops on design, carpentry, and the biology of trees. In October, TreeHouse Point will host a convention for builders from around the world. The Nelsons are currently working out permitting rules with King County with an eye to construct other treehouses on the property.

For more information about Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce events, call the chamber at (425) 888-4440.
