A treehouse is a child's dream and perhaps grown-ups' childhood dream. It's also an enjoyable playground for kids and a fun project for adults. While it looks like all fun and games, it takes serious planning and construction. Today, Homify shares the steps on how to build a charming treehouse. Let's get started!
You need to have a firm idea of the design you want before you create your own treehouse. Take accurate measurements and take into consideration the growth of the tree in making your plans.
The tree you are going to choose is crucial for the foundation of your treehouse. It should be healthy, strong, and mature. If it's too young or too old, there will not be enough support and this is dangerous.
Remember that trees move with the wind. To make sure that your tree and treehouse are not damaged by the wind, use sliding joints or brackets.
Always keep safety in mind. Don't build the treehouse too high as this will endanger the kids. Construct a safe railing and provide a cushion in case of a fall.
