  1. Tree House

    I made a playhouse for my grand daughter in the early spring. My daughter called a couple of months ago after seeing the aforementioned play house and said my SIL wanted my help in building a treehouse. He had already built the platform a couple of years ago so we just had to put a house on...
  2. Treehouse!

    Been working on this most of the summer… Still a few things to do on the inside, like shelves, a bench, toy box, etc. My boys are 8 and 5, so they'll be able to enjoy it for a while. Fun project!
  3. Treehouse

    I built this project a year ago but had been promising the kids to do it since we moved here in 2012! It started out as just the upper level but we added the lower level midway and it really improved the outcome. Plus it made the ladder into 2 stages thus much safer as less distance to fall! I...
  4. Spruce Slab door

    Spruce slab door, used in the cold side of shop.
  5. Tree Fort

    Every kid deserves a tree fort. I've got 3 (soon 4) kids, so I had to do things a little bigger. I worked on this project for a number of months in my spare time, just wrapping it up last week. I didn't really start with any plans, just figured things out as I went, accommodating the equipment...
  6. Tree House

    A few years ago now, my son asked if I could construct a tree house for his twin sons, but without damaging the tree! So I built it round the tree, so that it passes through the verandah. I did use one screwbolt to anchor the floor frame to the tree in one place for rigidity, after assuring...
  7. Treehouse by Culprit

    Here is the treehouse I designed and built for my kids. It spans two Poplar trees in our backyard and is held up in the trees with 4 bolts - 2 in each tree. Aside from getting to see one of the happy clients, this video shows the construction details, gives dimensions, types of joints, and...
  8. Playhouse

    Delivering the kids bench to our grandkids (see previous post) gave me an opportunity to finally complete their playhouse that I had started for them just before lockdown. I had started one for them at their previous property, but they moved before it was finished, so this one just kind of...
  9. Stairs for the treehouse

    Since the access to our tree house was way too dangerous, we needed to build a stair. After some internet research and some thinking I decided a quite simple approach. Quite happy with the result, maybe I will add some more security features (like a second handrail or a roap in between..)
  10. Kid's Closet Playhouse with a closet

    The Story: My daughter, Maggie, just turned three and I really had no idea what to get her. She already has all the cheap plastic junk she could want (and lots of expensive plastic junk too.) So I started looking online and I discovered that a bunch of people have turned closets into...
  11. Stumphouse / Treehouse

    Oh to be a Boy! The Treehouse was almost completely made with recycled materials, mostly finds from freebies. We all worked together on it. 6 by 6 Treated lumber was set in cement, eight total posts (3 along each side, and 2 casing the ladder). The Decking structure measures 12 by 13 feet...
  12. Daughters' Treehouse w/Sandbox Below

    I built this many years (mid 80's) ago for my daughters.
  13. Treehouse in Argyle, NY

    Not sure if this the right place to post this project, but I haven't put anything here in and wanted to get back into the game! Here's a treehouse I built in Argyle, NY this summer with some good friends. It was a great build, and has weathered well. The local saw mill we used, Drumm's Saw Mill...
  14. Nephews treehouse

    We built this Treehouse for my nephew last summer. I played Forman (knees and back, don't get me started), so we did all the framing and siding in my shop, and then transported the panels to their house and placed them up on a floor we built the weekend before. He's 6, so we only went 5 ft off...
  15. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    It's not my dad. Just something I came across surfing… Has anyone else seen this video? It's an amazing tour of a 75' spiral staircase that goes up a tree and is topped with a platform. I'm not comfortable with heights and seeing this flimsy looking construction that high up made my heart...
  16. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am curious on what way some of you would do this. Mine will be a little different from the pics. 55" wide and 30" deep 30" to top of desk It will have a keyboard drawer in the center and a drawer on both sides of the keyboard. The stained wood will be walnut and the rest will be white...
