Building A Tree House
The gable end on both sides was intentionally framed and left open for ventilation. We installed insect screening here.
4×4 pressure treated posts with top and bottom railings surround the open decks. We drilled a series of holed in the guard rails and the homeowner rigged roping for the balustrade.
We used IKEA Outdoor deck and patio interlocking floor tiles on the inside of the treehouse, installed in a herringbone fashion.
The door was designed by the future tenants. Days after we had a solar eclipse the kids decided that they wanted the door window to mimic an eclipse.
With a jigsaw we cut out a half moon and then used a burning tool to mark the outline the sun and sun rays on the door. Insect screening was then applied to the door opening.
Building a treehouse can be a fun project for you and a long “child-hood” memory for you kids. Just do it safely.
