The name Rivertree is inspired by the systems, uniformity, and uniqueness found in nature. An example of a reoccurring system in nature is the branched (dendritic) pattern found in a river basin. A river drainage comprised of creeks, streams, and rivers, forms a pattern much like the framework of a tree, thus the inspiration of our name. This pattern is infinitely repeated in nature’s design, such as in a deep sea fan coral, root systems, and right down to the circulation system that transports the blood in our bodies. As in nature, Rivertree builds one-of-a-kind homes using the same proven systems of organization and practice every time. For each project, we take into account the unique applications required, while using proven building practices to organize and build the home you desire resulting in a one-of-a-kind creation.
