During a trip to Bali, Tymmera Whitnah was captivated by the way many of the houses were elevated on poles. She had a vision of creating her own “spirit house” back home in rural Oregon using the same techniques. It would take many months of patience, lots of helping hands, and a little bit of right-brained ingenuity, but after two years, Whitnah’s shed of windows became a reality.

Whitnah uses the spirit house most often for meditation, but during the small parties she often hosts in her backyard, it is a lure for guests to climb up and view the festivities from above.
