9781601382443: The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House: For Parents and Adults Who Are Kids at Heart

As children, many people dreamed of having a tree house, a place where they could get away to play and relax. Today, more and more people are making this dream a reality for their children, especially in the United States, England, Germany, France, and Brazil but it does not have to be just for children. (In fact, Corbin Dunn, 31, took up a permanent residence in a tree house in Santa Cruz, California for five years.) The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House will show you how to create one of these sky-high getaways, whether it is a child s play area or an adult hideaway.

The oldest documented tree house is located in England on the grounds of Pitchford Hall and dates back to the 17th century. This proves that a tree house can be a lasting investment, especially if you choose the right tree and the right materials. This book will show you how to select a tree, prepare the tree, purchase the best materials, use the right tools, and buy lumber. You will learn about the tree house basics and the anatomy of a stable tree house, including four corners, diagonal support, sturdy flooring, a reliable ladder and railing, and a leak-proof roof.

In this book you will also learn about waterproofing, safety precautions, and building regulations and restrictions. You will be provided with design, building, and decorating tips, as well as non-technical drawings to aid you in the building process. You will learn about supports, windows, skylights, and tree house designs, such as shingled, two trees and two posts, and perch. Also included is an additional section on all the accessories you can add on to your house, like a ladder hoist, a fireman’s pole, swings, a zip line, a pulley and basket, a crow’s nest, a rope bridge, slides, and a trap door.

Whether you are building a tree house for your child or for yourself, The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House will provide you with dozens of helpful tips, tricks, and suggestions from people who have already undertaken this endeavor. With the help of this book, your treetop hideaway will quickly become a reality. The companion CD-ROM is included with the print version of this book; however is not available for download with the electronic version.  It may be obtained separately by contacting Atlantic Publishing Group at sales@atlantic-pub.com

Review:

In the past few years, there has been a boom of interest in tree houses, but there are not many resources that show the average person how to build their own. This is where author Robert Miskimon and The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House: For Parents and Adults Who Are Kids at Heart come in. In an easy-to-understand style, Miskimon covers all the bases from initial tree selection all the way to the final coat of paint. In between, nothing is left out. He covers safety, types of wood, fastener selection, and much more. That information alone is worth the price of this book. The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House is a book you will want to keep close at hand while building. --Steven Chmielnicki, Artisan Tree & Treehouse, LLC --Steven Chmielnicki, Artisan Tree & Treehouse, LLC
