The Tree House, located in Huntsville, Texas is Dan Phillips’ first artist compound complete with main house, efficiency apartment, working studio, and large outdoor patio area. The main house sits in a Bois d’arc tree thirty-five feet above Huntsville’s Town Creek. Artists must have a legitimate portfolio in order to rent the Tree House.
Just outside of the tree house itself is a multipurpose art studio. The ceiling is covered with discarded frame samples from frame shops. It includes lots of power for sculptors, mirrors for dancers, lots of natural light for painters, and a sink with a trap for potters.
