Things you will need in the construction of a tree house:

  1. A hammer/ an electric drill
  2. A ladder
  3. A saw
  4. Rope/ galvanized nails
  5. Wood waterproofing equipment
  6. 2x6x8 boards not less than seven in number
  7. Plywood sheets to be used in the exterior
  8. Waterproof tarp
  9. 2x2x8 boards
  10. 1  Staple gun

How to build a tree house for oneself:

Choose a tree to build the tree house

First of all, you will need to select a tree. The tree must not be less than 16″ in diameter, and it must not have a height greater than 10-14 feet from the ground level. It must be healthy and mature.

Build a platform using 2×6 beams

The platform should be constructed closer to the tree’s trunk. The tree’s branches should be made use of for this purpose. Diagonal bracing should be used to give it an additional support if no branches are available to take advantage of. The platform must be level and balanced.

Add floor when the platform is done

You must make use of exterior plywood to place the level. The 2×6 boards should be put 16″ apart. They must be placed parallel to the frame. From the floor joists. The boards must be cut to length one desires and hence put perpendicular to joists. The curves must be reduced in the floorboard to facilitate the tree limbs come through.

The roof must be constructed next

2×2 boards must be attached vertically at each corner. Now four 2×2 horizontal boards must be joined to it to form a rectangular frame. Two 2×2 boards are connected at an angle to form a gable at each of the ends. A 2×2 board can be placed vertically between two tables to join them. Cover the frame with waterproof tarp and staple them in place.

Add windows, walls and doors

Now add windows, doors, and walls to it. You can make use of plastic, plexiglass and mesh screening. Make a stable access to your tree house. If you are going to place a ladder, make sure the blowing wind does not remove it. The wood must be waterproofed once the tree house is complete.

Now that you know how to build a tree house begin making one for yourself.
