Treehouse Fun!

On any given day, it’s not unlikely to hear a roar of laughter or excitement coming from our backyard. Our treehouse has been a big hit. We may have gone a little overboard but we absolutely love it. The large 12x12 platform holds the treehouse with loft and the front porch. It has features like a built in rock wall that leads to the loft area... 3 large windows...and large craftsman style front door. I used limbs from the maple tree as the railing for the porch.

  • Wow! This is an impressive treehouse. What was the most challenging part of this build?
    By RYOBI NATION, on July 5, 2018
    • The most challenging part was deciding whether or not we put a large branch "through" the treehouse OR build the treehouse around the branch.  I was concerned with waterproofing the branch if the branch went through the treehouse.  Although it would have been really cool to have a branch on the inside, We decided to recess that area of the house a bit to leave the branch on the outside and made it work by building a custom bench seat with storage underneath for outside toys, etc.  You can see the bench and the large Branch to the left of the front window and door.

  • Your tree house looks great!  Really like the use of the tabs and the yoke to connect it to the tree!

    • @EJC5  Thank You so much!  The Tabs are Garnier Limbs from Treehouses.com.  They worked GREAT for this project!
