Philosophy

Everything on this property has been built by hand by both (Matt and Jeff) as well as among many friends and family over the past 7 years. We continue to reuse logs from the property to build pergolas, decks, and fun structures to relax and enjoy.

History

Growing up in a small town outside of the big city, two brothers, Matt & Jeff spent their nights after school exploring the wooded area behind their neighborhood. They spent most of their days building forts & tree houses and getting lost in nature. Some tree forts as simple as nailing pieces of wood to a tree just to see a different view of the sky. The winter brought snow forts, sledding and hot chocolate. In the summers they would catch fireflies, jump over sprinklers, and play in the woods until the daylight ran out.

Life happened to the brothers and the environment changed faster than they could hold onto. High School, University and Careers came rapidly and before they knew it, their days were spent acclimating to this new lifestyle that was chosen by others, soon forgetting where they came from. After their pathways took them in opposite directions for quite some time.

They began to build things again together like they did as boys in the woods. As they tinkered with creating new businesses, building custom furniture and designing energy efficient homes they stumbled upon what they really wanted to create. They wanted to create forts for adults. Spaces where people could go and reconnect with their younger self and see the world as they did when they were kids.

So Matt & Jeff created the Canopy, a place for people to disconnect with the social character they’ve created and reconnect with that child in the woods.

Mission & Vision

The Canopy Sierras is a place to disconnect from technology and connect to nature. It is deep in the Sierras mountains with sprawling views of the entire mountain range. When you arrive, you will instantly feel the feeling of release and love from all the one-of-a-kind custom structures scattered across the 20 acre property.

Every structure that we have built has furniture, decks, countertops, tables, and art that was sourced from the trees of our property. All the spaces are installed with solar systems to power the lights and small charging USB ports for charging small items if needed. We also reuse the shower water to water the newly planted trees in the surrounding areas.
