In 2005, Feider founded Treehouse with the intention of inspiring people to reconsider how we can more harmlessly co-exist with nature. While completing his BFA in furniture design (Minneapolis College of Art and Design), Feider created his first geodesic structure 50 feet up in a Poplar tree in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

Feider has created over forty artistic treehouses.
