8' x 8' free standing platform for treehouses

Product details
Adaptable 8' x 8' platform supported on posts, suitable for the Kauri, San Pedro, or Zelkova treehouses (see other listings) when tree support is limited.
The platform has options to use partial tree support, with two layouts using tree supports included in the guide. This guide is included free with the San Pedro, Kauri and Zelkova treehouses, and is specifically designed to convert them to full post support, but you could use this plan as a base for your own treehouse design, if it is 8'x8' or less and of similar general style to these treehouses.
The platform can be built entirely on posts or with one tree plus posts, with custom instructions included for the different methods. Every step of the build is covered, with diagrams to illustrate the location of parts and position of bolts. There are no complicated techniques to learn, no tricky joints to master and all the materials are readily available. A marginless version of the guide is included for ereaders. Help is available by e-mail and a 28 day satisfaction guarantee applies.
The site requirements vary depending on the design you use for your site:
- Four posts: level ground which is not subject to flooding and has a low proportion of sand
- Three posts and one tree: level ground as above, plus a healthy tree of at least 9" diameter at floor level
- Two posts and one tree: level ground as above, plus a healthy tree of at least 12" diameter at floor level
