STEPS TO BUILD SAFE TREEHOUSE

To build a beautiful and safe treehouse, start by selecting a healthy, sturdy tree that can support your planned model. Find a segment where the trunk separates into a “V” shape, & build your platform in that area, with four points anchoring the base of the Tree. Around the outside, build a sturdy railing, & construct a ladder or stairs up to the proper platform. Off to the handrail, attach a quite simple roof made of canvas to protect the base.

  1. Before you start building your treehouse, you must have to remember to keep safety in mind.
  2. Making your treehouse too high could be very dangerous. The platform of tree house should not be any higher than 6–8 feet.
  3. Make sure the railing around your tree platform is at least 36″ tall, with balusters no more than 4″ apart.
  4. Choose a sturdy tree where two branches separate into a “V” shape. 
  5. Then, Start Building Tree House.

METHODS OF MAKING TREEHOUSE

1.  Struts & Stilts: Struts & stilts used for relieving weights on a lower elevation to the ground; Treehouses supported by stilts weigh much smaller on the Tree & help to avoid stress, potential strain, & injury caused by puncture holes. Stilts anchored into the ground with new designs, such as the “Diamond Pier,” accelerates installation time & they are less invasive for the root system.  Stilts are deemed the most straightforward procedure of supporting larger treehouse, & can also enhance structural support & safety.

2.  Stay Rods: Stay rods used for decreasing weights on a higher elevation. These systems are particularly useful to prevent movements caused by wind or tree growth. Higher elevation & more branches tail off decline capacity & enhance wind sensibility. As building materials for hanging used as ropes, tension fasteners, springs, etc.

3. Friction & Tension Fasteners: Friction and tension fasteners are the most common non-invasive process of securing tree houses. They don’t use nails, screws or bolts, but instead grip the beams to the trunk through threaded bars, counter-beam, or tying.
