Salvaged Lumber Treehouse

Project: Custom Treehouse + Observation Deck

Goal: This back yard was blessed with an incredible view. Our clients dreamed of creating a treehouse that would meet the whims of their young and adventurous grandchildren. However, they also wanted something comfortable and accessible so they could enjoy it too. We designed two staircases -- one with an easy-access gentle slope, and another steeper ladder-style staircase that is somewhat hidden from view, for the kids. Made from salvaged lumber, this treehouse has turned into a source of enjoyment for the entire family. It's a perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee (and that view!) on a quiet morning, and on the hottest days of summer the treehouse provides a shaded oasis. All this and... we were able to build the treehouse without attachments, so that not a single screw or nail penetrates the tree.
