Re: Building a treehouse

I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a great year, @Dan_M.


As you've realised, your one of a kind tree house is still sparking inspiration within the community, and we would absolutely love to see some updated images. I think we've all been waiting with bated breath to see the finished results; I know I have.


Many thanks for the update.

Oh yeah - a keen eye will also notice an addition to the side..... I got sick of trying to haul panels up a ladder and nearly stack.... so fast tracked the 'ships ladder/stairs :smile:

made a template and routed out channels for each step.....this was fun carrying down and lifting into place on my own....




and some grab rails (brackets from you know where !)  :wink:




then wanted to make the railing gaps more 'small kid proof'
made a 'pig fence' - routed a channel down the inside length of the pine, and slotted the mesh in place then screwed the frame

this is about the latest pic - it's essentially functional and safe; I have a window to install into the 'cabin' and need to finish off the railing....
also think a firemans pole at the end of decking is required..and a camouflage paint job on outside to blend in... :smile:




top railing is perfect width :wink:




cheers everyone and will keep you updated on progress :wink:
