30 feet in the air is the first deck then through the willow door you go up into the trap door onto a deck which has a fire mans pole back down to first deck and then a slide to the ground. entry is a 30 foot ramp. Tree house was built for a client in santa barbara ca . I also did a 200 foot hipline for them on another part of there property ill have to post some pics of that too thanks for checking it out

Man – it looks neat and I would have loved to play on that when I was a kid, but the liability would scare the hell out of me now. With the way the world works I’m afraid I couldn’t have that on my property. Hope as a contractor you got a lawyer to design a waiver to cover your arse. Please nothing personal just my opinion – thanks

That really is one incredible structure!

However . . . I’m with 1yeldud1. I’d need a 24-hour guard to keep anyone off it who hadn’t signed a waiver or I might get sued for having an attractive nuisance.

Wow …. where do you even start something like this? (Apart from having to grow the tree.) I’d get vertigo from the start. Nice job, Bowenarrow

Wow what an awesome looking tree house and an amazing design. It looks like it should be there, just a natural part of the tree, like it grew with the tree..Excellent job and thanks for sharing.

Fantastic job! I appreciate how difficult that would be to build with all of the curves. I don’t think there are requirements for permits for anything above ground yet. Give them time!

This is awesome but I question the “no ground supports” comment. Clearly in the second picture the slide is holding the whole thing up …. :-)
