Roderick Romero's day generally involves being suspended 30-plus feet off the ground.
"It all started when I was a kid and my brothers and I would build these little platforms up in these giant cedar trees outside Seattle, Wash. And we'd climb up 30 feet, 40 feet and look out over the Puget Sound," Romero said in an interview with CNBC's "Power Lunch."
Since then, Romeo has built 65 tree houses. His clientele includes the rich and famous.
"Sting and Trudy asked me to do a tree house in Tuscany… then it kind of just blossomed out of that. The fourth one was for Donna Karan …and then she introduced me to Julianne Moore and then Julianne introduced me to Val Kilmer," Romero said.
Romero only uses salvaged and reclaimed lumber.
"I can't, you know, be building in nature knowing that I'm taking wood from some sort of clear cut," he said.
His tree houses are inspired by the properties they reside on.
"For me with the design, it's trying to fit it. I'm always walking through the woods. You want to look up and be like 'oh, there's the tree house.' It can't be too overt, too obvious," Romero said.
When asked what's next, he answered, "I want to do something that's more like a tree house hotel, like a 'treesort.'"
