When you’re a kid, no place is more magical than a tree house. Sadly, most of us grow out of the lofty, leafy hideouts, but that wasn’t the case with Jo Scheer. Five years ago, he felt something was missing from his Puerto Rico island home: a tree house. His property offered no appropriate trees, so the undaunted Scheer—an artist and a carpenter—created a bamboo structure he dubbed “the hooch.”
