The San Francisco Chronicle: A Treehouse of One’s Own

Fourteen feet above the ground, in a tree house nestled between the branches of three adjacent sycamore trees, Puneet Sandhu can finally clear her head.

When she’s not running her dental practice and teaching classes at San Jose City College, she spends her weekends providing discounted dental care to military members and licensing foreign dentists. Sandhu, 40, is also the mother of two children, 8 years, and 16 months.

In the absence of discovering an eighth day of the week to relax and unwind, Sandhu craved a getaway spot — a space that was hers and hers alone.
