Contents It's not the destination, it's the journey -- The treehouses at treehouse point -- Treehouse U -- Putting it all together: the WC Ranch treehouse -- A tour of single-tree designs -- A tour of multiple-tree designs -- A walk in the woods: inspiring treehouses collected from all over.
Summary Pete Nelson, the world's best-known treehouse designer and builder, wants to put readers in trees--his motto is, "get 'er done, so you can BE in a TREE." His new book is a comprehensive source of inspiration and practical information about treehouse design and construction. To that end, he shares the basics of treehouse construction with his own recent projects as case studies. Using photographs taken especially for this project along with diagrams, he covers the selection and care of trees, and explains the fundamentals of building treehouse platforms. To ignite the imagination, Nelson presents 27 treehouses in the United States, Europe, and Africa. The book will be indispensible to anyone who aspires to have a treehouse, from the armchair dreamer, to the amateur builder, to the professional contractor.
