Creation of a Tree House Dream in Asheville NC

Our latest Asheville NC tree house is going up quickly! Here are some recent photos of our process.  World Treehouses’ Adam Laufer says, “Each tree house is uniquely different. Our challenge is to be open and listen to our client, the tree, and the surrounding landscape. The tree dictates what we can build in it. We depend on the health of the tree to support the structure we create, so we are careful to disturb the tree as little as possible. The trees we’re working on for this project (Georgia and Winston) are both white oaks. One (Georgia) is very healthy and strong, and the other (Winston) had a previous wound. So we are only using Winston as a lateral brace to help support the tree house. He gets to be part of the party, but he doesn’t have to take the weight!” Don’t miss our upcoming photos!

Installing a roof is more fun when you’re in the trees!

Installing a roof is more fun when you're in the trees!   Mike and Adam gear up for an afternoon of installing cedar shingles for this treehouse in Mars Hill, NC. Mike’s 26-foot-high octagonal structure is built in the client’s back yard, and it is nearly complete. Using reclaimed lumber in the treehouse frame is a money-saver and good for the Earth, as well!
