Trees only grow length wise from the tips of the branches and the tips of the roots (primary growth). The tree will continue to add width to the branches and trunk (secondary growth). My main concern would be providing a place for water and insects to potentially damage the tree.
Nice project, but I am concerned about the opening at the top of the ladder. Kids rough-housing in the treehouse could result in a fall through the opening. Not sure what a simple fix would look like; but if I were to build this, I would try to work out something to prevent accidental falls...
my Aunty Sarah got a 6 month old Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel just by working online. Find Out More......>> -> VERY EASY JOBS!!! <-
Its really nice for child
Won't the tree continue to grow and therefore cause that corner to be pushed up and cause structure damage to the tree house?
Send pictures please.
That's the first thing that came to mind when I heard "straddles the property line". I see big problems ahead if one of them move, and the new owner doesn't what it hanging over his yard.
Labor another $200-$300.
nice work i like it good job how much is it cost
An oldie but good one
You need a sign "No Girls Allowed". LOL
The supports are cemented in place Bro.
It is a tree fort Bro.
Are you moving to a tree house?
Sure, just be sure the support posts are level.
It will not kill the tree. Did you ever watch the Treehouse Show on TV? They drill holes in the trees for their projects, with no damage!
Loosen up Dianee.
Hm a structure built over concrete for children that straddles two properties what could possibly go wrong, hello lawsuit
I think this is a great idea for the kids, but one question, what happens when the grows and the supports are no longer on the ground for safety?
You are not nice.
They said the cost was $275 as built.
Looks cool to do.
Personally, I would have extended the corner supports all the way to the top of the railing. Also would have screwed railing boards to the inside which would be safer in case pressure was exerted from the inside. Round dowel rungs on a ladder would be very slippery from rain or dew. Steps would be safer and at the least there should be a rubber wrap on the ladder rung. I liked the idea of not anchoring the tree-house to the tree. The completed project looked very nice and I'm sure the children will get a lot of enjoyment from it.
treefort, treehouse something the little explorers will remember the rest of there lives. the tree was not hurt at all. great job.
Years ago we had a tree house. I am now 70 years young. This was back in the 1950's I don't think it's still there at all!...
can i get directions for my guy to build this.. don't think he uses the computer much..
can you build a tree house without a tree ps i turned 10 yesterday
If you think Cindy`s story is something..., 5 weeks ago my cousins boyfriend also got paid $7393 putting in 40 hours a month from there house and the're classmate's sister-in-law`s neighbour done this for 7-months and brought home over $7393 parttime at There laptop. applie the tips on this page, jump15.comCHECK IT OUT
how much would it cost to build a tree house? would like to build one for our children.
Most suggestions found is an angle of 75 degrees on the ladder for good stability. Spacing between rungs is usually around 12 inches for most ladders. As far as securing the ladder you'll have a number of options. A visit to your local hardware store should help you address the options as well as pricing.
Good luck on your projects,

Is there any...magic to hooking up the ladder, or do you just lean it up there? What angle...? Also...what space between rungs, what width? Or is it just kinda common sense...figure it out...?
Great video Ron! I always wanted a tree house growing up. I personally think having the wall there would be helpful with providing support. It's nice that they wanted to build that together for both of their children to play in!
My husband and I are moving soon and the first thing we need working in our new home is the internet. That way we can just go here to Ron's site and be able to build or repair anything and everything without hiring it done and waiting forever for them to get there and waiting to see if it is fixed right or not. God bless Ron Hazelton. He is the BEST, and easiest to understand. When I follow his directions-my project comes out perfect. (not like most others)Thanks Ron.
