Been working on this most of the summer… Still a few things to do on the inside, like shelves, a bench, toy box, etc. My boys are 8 and 5, so they’ll be able to enjoy it for a while. Fun project!

Love it! Wish I had a tree so that my ‘platform house’ I posted a couple years ago could have been a true treehouse. Nice work, many different levels, creativity.

That is a really nice house. You could live in it if the flood waters ever got too high for the house
the high porch would make a nice tree stand for deer hunting if it were in the woods!!

I’ll bet your kids just love it!! Nice build, Ryno!!!!!!!!!!!!!............Jim

I’m working on a tree house. Phase one: grow a tree large enough for a house… Yours looks great though.

Ryno, awesome tree house, I know you mentioned not done yet, are you going to add a zip-line? Cable stretched from window staked secure into the ground with 1” metal pipe for the hand hold zip. I remember as a boy we had neighbors that had a tree house with a zip line and we had a blast on it.

In today’s time inviting neighbor kids over could get messy if one were to fall, ugh.

Thanks, all!
@Blackie, yes, zip line is in the plans, but from the first level for just the reason you mentioned!
@Lanaug, thanks… Wanted to minimize the weight at that level without sacrificing security!

Ryno, Please have NO contact with my grandkids. They have been after me for years, and a triple level tree house to boot. Awesome. Don
