Product Description


Help your kids explore their imaginations with a well-built tree house. Schmidt (Decorating with Architectural Details) presents a well-organized guide to the basics of tree house building. Good photos and clear, detailed instructions lead readers through six designs. There is an informative section on what species of tree is best to "host" your structure as well as cautionary information on building codes and zoning. This is a solid book, but it lacks the flare and spirit of David and Jeanie Stiles's Treehouses & Playhouses You Can Build. Still, Schmidt provides great instruction and a solid foundation. Recommended. - Library Journal March 1, 2007

Book Description

Treehouses Anyone Can Build!  Black & Decker Build A Treehouse! that is a basic yet complete presentation of how to plan, design, and build a safe, fun treehouse structure for children. The book begins with an inspirational chapter showing the many treehouse variations that are possible. Next, a chapter on basic techniques shows how the essential treehouse platform can be built and secured in any tree configuration-nestled high among the branches or designed so the trunk passes up through the center, and every variation in-between Then, separate chapters show the techniques for adding walls, roofs, ladders, access hatches and accessories. The final chapter of the book gives complete plans for the treehouses, from the very simple to the surprisingly sophisticated.

HASH(0xb6a1e90c) out of 5 stars Okay, but not the most recent version Oct. 24 2013
By Paul N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives some good ideas and basic treehouse construction information. I saw what looked like the same book at Lowes, but it's an updated version with more plans for doors, windows, etc. I would recommend getting the updated version of the book instead of this one.
