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!

Of course, the kitten is a treehouse expert!

Of course, the kitten is a treehouse expert!   It was a purrfect day for Asheville NC-based Adam Laufer of World Treehouses to help John Henry and Mike Stam of Creative Treehouse Design on their new treehouse in Mars Hill, NC. Whether we admit it or not, we know that John Henry, the kitten, is our boss.  Living up to his name, John Henry has courage and strength to spare. He is entirely unfazed by the 26-foot climb up the ladder to the bridge, then across the rope bridge into the 14-foot octagonal structure. And, as you can see from the photo, it’s clear that he loves rope as much as we do!

A treehouse for every need: experience the gifts of the Trees!

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?
