This Reddit user isn’t a professional. He isn’t a contractor. He is just a simple man who had a simple task: to build a treehouse. He was helping out a friend in wine country who wanted to add a treehouse to their property (probably just to make it even more insanely beautiful). So, after arming himself with hours of research, he got to work.
It took 57 days to build this “DIY” treehouse. The materials cost him about $5,000 (although he had some door frames and other supplies himself). In less than two months, he was able to create a small playhouse that is more comfortable than most people’s first apartment. I want this.
This was the tree that was selected for the tree house. It was a live oak with three large branches.
The tree house itself is 8 feet wide by 12 feet long. The over-sized deck gives a two foot walkway around the tree house, although dodging some branches was required.
