If the idea of a tree house doesn’t stir your imagination, you might want to check that your heart is still beating :) The great news is that there are lots of inspired adults around the world determined to fulfil their childhood desires! For more examples head over to our "Treehouses for the Child Within" album on our site at http://theownerbuildernetwork.co/vo53 Whoever said treehouses are just for the kids?
Don’t use too many fasteners. One large bolt is better than many screws or nails. You get the same strength but with fewer puncture wounds to the tree. Whenever possible, perch your tree house on top of fasteners rather than pinning beams to the tree. This gives the tree room to move and grow. Even for smaller, lighter tree houses where the load is spread over three or four attachment points, consider using 1-in.- or 1-1/4-in.-diameter lag bolts.
