As near as possible, the client wanted the treehouse to be completely supported within the tree, while at the same time having reasonably comfortable access from the ground. The tree chosen was in a field close to the garden boundary, so the treehouse is accessed in three manageable stages, with steps up to fence level, then bridged over to the tree before climbing the final stage ships ladder. watch video ›
