John Harris shows the reader how to build their own safe and comfortable treehouse to specifications that his business The TreeHouse Company are famous for. Including detailed plans and step-by-step advice, each section will also have ideas on alternative approaches to personalize the look of your house. It follows the basic design of a simple-to-emulate treehouse with a moderately spacious room, built-in features, veranda, balustrade, and a shingled roof. The book starts with a description of the equipment and materials needed and analyzes the type of tree that you will need. It discusses planning and preparation, how to build a frame and foundation, and creating the additional features, such as ladders, windows, and doors. It also features more complex aspects such as connecting electricity for lighting and heating, roofing, staircases, and designing interiors. Each stage is fully illustrated with photography and specific drawings and John Harris guides you through each step with a clear and concise text.
