Overview

Tree houses capture the imagination of the child in all of us, and they have never been more popular than they are today. This inspirational yet thoroughly practical guide shows even the most inexperienced weekend carpenter how to design and build a lifetime of memories for the entire family. With more than 200,000 copies of their popular Weekend Project Books sold, David and Jeanie Stiles have become America's First Couple of do-it-yourself woodworking. In Tree Houses You Can Actually Build, they explain basic building procedures through clear, simple instructions and non-technical line drawings that illustrate every step of the project, from the earliest sketches to the final cedar shingle. The authors outline five basic designs that can be adapted to virtually any set of conditions, and throughout the book, they emphasize safety for both adults and children. In addition to line drawings, the book contains a section of full-color photographs highlighting a variety of tree house projects, plus helpful building tips based on interviews with their owners.

This is by far one of the best books I have purchased. There are really great hand drawn illustrations. I love this book and would recommend it highly to anyone interested in building their own treehouse.

Once I looked over this book on how well it was written I had to buy it. When I got home I built the one tree treehouse. It took about a week. It looks great and the kids love it. This book gave me the confidence to tackle this job and save time and money.
