Overview


Pete Nelson, the world’s best-known treehouse designer and builder, wants to put readers in trees—his motto is, “get ’er done, so you can BE in a TREE.” His new book is a comprehensive source of inspiration and practical information about treehouse design and construction. To that end, he shares the basics of treehouse construction with his own recent projects as case studies. Using photographs taken especially for this project along with diagrams, he covers the selection and care of trees, and explains the fundamentals of building treehouse platforms. To ignite the imagination, Nelson presents 27 treehouses in the United States, Europe, and Africa. The book will be indispensible to anyone who aspires to have a treehouse, from the armchair dreamer, to the amateur builder, to the professional contractor.

Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post Book World

“With its stunning photos of fanciful houses, Nelson’s book will appeal to anyone who ever read Peter Pan or The Swiss Family Robinson. . . . To browse through Nelson’s book is to fantasize about life in midair.”
