Now fully rewritten:
- Easier wall and roof panel installation, more available interior space, added trim and many other minor improvements
- Includes different support options: two trees, one tree with posts, and freestanding
A treehouse built across two trees, with a total floor area of 64sqft, and an internal floor area of around 39sqft. Also included are instructions for building on posts if you don't have suitable trees available. There are four windows and the entrance is via one of the supporting trees, a rope ladder, or a normal ladder. This treehouse would be suited for children as a special hideaway, or as a fully functioning office set in a secluded and inspiring location. The deck is covered to keep it dry in rainy weather. Over 36 pages you are taken through every step to create this structure, all written with a beginner in mind. There are no complicated techniques to learn, no tricky joints to master and all the materials are readily available.

A method of access (stairs, ladder, etc) is not included in this plan and will need to be fitted according to your specific site.
- Two tree: two trees 12"+ in diameter, within 5° of vertical, and separated by between 10'2" and 14'
- One tree with three posts: a tree of minimum 9" diameter
- One tree with two posts: a tree of minimum 12" diameter
- No trees: a relatively flat area that is not affected by flooding
Detailed instructions for all these configurations are included with the main treehouse plan. If you wish to use a greater span over two trees, please contact us with details of your situation. All tree supports require a clear space 6' below floor level and branches above floor level may need to be trimmed to make space for the treehouse.
The tree is treated with respect throughout the building process. Only the supports are fixed to the tree so the house itself rests entirely on the platform without touching the tree. Bolts are precisely placed for strength, safety and to reduce any restriction to the growth of the tree. A unique and simple sliding joint is used to allow the trees to move in the wind without restriction and without causing damage to the treehouse. This also ensures that the tree remains healthy.
