Zelkova treehouse - plans to build in two trees or free standing

Product details
Build your own treehouse with these easy to follow plans. The Zelkova design can be built between two trees, or on posts if you don't have suitable trees. Standard building materials are used efficiently to keep costs down and avoid waste.
Inside, the floor area is unobstructed by the supporting trees, so there is more space available for chairs or a table. The deck is fully covered to keep the entrance dry in wet weather. The roof panels are newly designed without visible rafters outside or on the inside ceiling.
The design uses plywood for the outer layer, so is easy to customize with trim, paint, and cladding like cedar shingles or shiplap. This gives a lot of flexibility in the final look, so you could match the finish of your main house, or create a rustic forest hideaway with the same base structure.

The treehouse and supports are fabricated in sections at ground level, then lifted into the tree and fixed together in their final positions. This streamlined process is easier and faster than building everything in the tree, and means you can build most of the treehouse inside a garage or workshop, even in bad weather.
If you wish to use a greater span over two trees, please contact us with details of your situation. All tree supports require a clear space 6' below floor level and branches above floor level may need to be trimmed to make space for the treehouse. A method of access (stairs, ladder, etc) is not included in this plan and will need to be fitted according to your specific site.
Photos shown are of completed treehouses with some extra trim and paintwork.
