Plans for an 8' x 8' platform supported between two trees, using a sliding joint to prevent damage to the treehouse or trees in strong winds. It can be used to support the Kauri, San Pedro or Zelkova treehouses. Using two trees for support has the advantage that the whole platform is unobstructed by the supporting trees and so can be used in its entirety to take advantage of all the internal floor space of your treehouse plan. You can also use this plan as a base for your own treehouse design, provided it is 8'x8' or less and of similar general style to the treehouses listed above.

Every step of the build is covered with diagrams to illustrate the location of parts and position of bolts. There are no complicated techniques to learn, no tricky joints to master and all the materials are readily available. A marginless version of the guide is included for ereaders. Help is available by e-mail and a 28 day satisfaction guarantee applies.

You will need two trees of at least 12" diameter to use this plan. The space between the trees can be a minimum of 10'2" up to a maximum of 14'. Both trees should be within 5° of vertical so that the supports can be correctly attached. The minimum height of the platform is 6' above the ground, due to the height of the supports under the platform.

This guide is already part of the Zelkova treehouse guide, so if you are building that treehouse you do not need to order this guide separately.

I’m still building the platform so I have a long way to go still. Looking good so far. I studied different plans for a while before I came across these. The level of detail is really good and absolutely worth the price. It saved me a considerable amount of time. The seller haS responded promptly to questions I have had and changed I wanted to make. I wish I had More photos but I’ll have to send them to the seller when I’ll done

The directions work! We might do a few things different to avoid waste but every contractor has ideas for improvement. If you want to follow directions to build one amazing treehouse, this is money well spent. Thank you. These directions saved us hours, if not days, figuring it out ourselves.

I bought the plans for my handyman to help give him guidance on my expectations for the treehouse. He could have built the treehouse without the plans as he has experience as a builder but for the $40 I felt it was worth it to help communicate my expectations. He modified the plan some to make it fit the existing base and to make it easier to build with existing windows and I am pleased with how it turned out.
