One of my daughters and I were on our way to Eugene, OR to pick up a used utility/camping trailer I was purchasing. We stopped off in Woodburn, OR to supercharge before heading further south to Eugene. The supercharger was located near Woodburn Premium Outlets, so we walked around the mall for a bit. After walking around a bit, we came across this whimsical treehouse. Rather than have windows and a roof that are level, they are angled. This helps give that whimsical feel.
