The World Treehouses staff will walk you through a process for bringing your treehouse dream to fruition. Here's a taste of what it takes to build your treehouse.
Step 1: Tree and Site Assessment
Initial tree climb and assessment by World Treehouses staff
Receive permission from the trees.
Arborist report: confirm that trees are healthy.
Is the location near the property line? Do you need to discuss the new treehouse with your neighbors?
Owner addresses any zoning and permit issues.
Step 2: Design Process
Who and what is the tree house being used for?
What needs engineering? Will there be a bridge?
Are we working with an architect or other designer?
Will World Treehouses create a scale model of the tree house?
Is World Treehouses building a foundation for another builder to build on top of, or are we building the entire project?
Step 3: Treehouse building begins
Find/acquire beams, brackets, hardware. Will some of these be custom-made?
Build deck foundation.
Acquire windows and doors. Will some of these be reclaimed or custom-made?
Frame the tree house.
