World Treehouses was just featured on the news! Watch this video from Asheville's ABC station to learn what's behind Adam Laufer's love for treehouses and how they connect his clients to Nature:
Why build a treehouse?
A treehouse is a structure that holds the magic and beauty of Nature and provides the space for our souls to soak in peace.
Being in the trees allows us to connect with the natural world, an experience often missing in our modern lives.
A treehouse is a safe-house from the distractions of our busy human activities.
A treehouse provides space for us to unwind, let go and allow our imaginations to play. These beautiful structures give us the opportunity to quiet down enough to hear the voice of the natural world.
Forests are the ultimate communities. They remind us that our well-being is interdependent with other human and non-human beings and our environment. A treehouse can humble our “grandness,” allowing us to slow down and develop good relations with each other and everything around us.
Most importantly, forests, trees and treehouses are lots of fun! That's why we love building treehouses (and why you'll love having one).

Are you longing for something that modern life and all of its technological distractions can’t give you? Even with all of the information offered to us by TV and the internet, many of us feel like there’s something essential missing from our lives. Human beings giving other human beings information (often to sell or convince us) is worth participating in, but there’s a wisdom, perspective and serenity that information overload just doesn’t offer us. Many of us escape to the woods, the lakes or somewhere in Nature to let go of the buzz of distraction and remember who we are again. What if you could create a haven in the trees right where you live? At World Treehouses, we strive to create structures that are woven into the fabric of Mother Nature Herself. We build Asheville treehouses, and treehouses in western NC and beyond. Tell us about your treehouse dream! Which treehouse is for you?

It feels like we just started this project, and now it’s almost done. We have had a great time building this treehouse for a family in Brevard to enjoy. They put their hearts, souls and backs into the work with us. We love working closely with our clients! Among the many other things we’ve loved about this project is the owners’ decision to use recycled/reused lumber, roofing and windows wherever possible. The treehouse gains so much character from the nicks in the reused siding and the antique look of the reclaimed metal roof. This choice saved the tree-home owners a great deal of money, as well.

World Treehouses owner, Adam Laufer, was featured in a two-minute news segment on Asheville’s local ABC station on Friday, June 17! Photo-journalist Bill Evans did a wonderful job of helping to capture the essence of Adam’s work in the trees. Adam talks about his previous career as a busy yoga instructor in Asheville, and how that work has influenced his desire to connect people with Nature through the trees and forest. Says Adam, “The trees are always growing. If we don’t have a healthy relationship with growth, we’re not reaching for the sunlight anymore. To me, that’s a good thing to reach for: the sunshine in our lives and in our hearts.” And, you get to meet Bella, the canine mascot and sweet spirit supporting our current Brevard, NC treehouse build. She loves to climb up into the trees, too! “Dogs are such wonderful friends. They remind us that just being alive is what we’re grateful for.” View a slideshow of the project featured on TV by clicking the image below: World Treehouses on Facebook Treehabilitation on Facebook Join our e-list […]
