We design simple, complete tree house plans

  • You don't need experience or special tools to build your own treehouse
  • Each treehouse plan has an overall materials buying list, designed to use readily available materials
  • More detail than blueprints — each component has its own diagrams, assembly instructions, and cutting list
  • Major components of the treehouse are assembled at ground level for safety and speed
  • Supports are lifted into position and bolted to the tree
  • Prefabricated panels are lifted into the tree and joined together to assemble the treehouse

The floor is an 8'x8' square to make best use of full size plywood sheets and the tree trunk passes through the middle of the structure as a unique feature.

Freestanding Savanna bird hide

Savanna bird hide

A freestanding fort, ideal as a kid's playhouse. Very easy to construct and a great introduction to treehouse building for areas which have no suitable trees. The entrance is up a ladder and through a trapdoor in the floor.

Outpost tree fort for one tree

Outpost tree fort

An open fort designed for young and old alike, attached to the trunk of one tree. The plans are divided into sections covering each stage and includes material lists, diagrams and 3D views. Fits in a single tree and has trapdoor access.

Terrazza tree deck

Slightly smaller than the Outpost design, this tree deck uses a simpler design to make construction easy and quick, with enough deck space for two chairs.
