Plans for beginners


Build your own treehouse

Before you begin

Preparing your design

Supports and platform construction

Example support layouts

  • Single tree with the treehouse surrounding the trunk or offset
  • Two trees for reliable and flexible support with full use of the floor area
  • Three trees for larger decks and treehouses
  • Four trees for extra large platforms

Building the house on the platform

  • Framing and building the treehouse walls, roof, doors and windows
  • Install a fireplace to keep warm and cosy, including how to mix concrete
  • Build a rope bridge for access from a slope or between trees
  • Waterproof key areas of your treehouse to protect it from rot
