The treehouse took my son Will and I three summers to build. It is nestled in four maples about 30 feet
from the ground. It is insulated and has power so we rent it out through airbnb.com. The loft has a queen
sized futon and there is a single bed on the main floor. One tree goes though the middle and moves when
the wind blows.

Really cool! I love it…tree houses fascinate me. My neighbor had one growing up….but his dad just lag bolted the support beams to the trees and eventually they grew enough so it was unsafe and had to be torn down. It had a porch like yours, and a bunk bed but no electricity! Nice work..

Love it! My wife and kids would always know where to find me, if I wasn’t in my shop. I would have to run the internet to it, so I could check out LJ’s.

Wow, that is a nice tree house. And you don’t have to climb a vertical ladder to get to it. It looks like it would double as a deer blind in the fall!
