The Best Tree House Ever: How to Build a Backyard Tree House the Whole World Will Talk about Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When his two young grandsons clamored for a hideout in the trees, what could Maurice Barkley, a sixty-something retiree, do but grab some wooden beams and a level? Now, more than ten years, seven tiny houses, and a spiral staircase later, Barkleys grandkids can truly say they have the best tree house ever. With a backyard that has become a tourist destination and the delighted cries of children playing pretend sounding in his ears, Barkley shares his pro building tips, floor plans, and how-tos in an easy-to-use guide anyone with a hankering for nature and a set of basic carpenters tools can follow.

The Best Tree House Ever records the creation and growth of a child-sized village built high above the ground and documents the wonderful, unexpected consequences—the visitors, the excitement, and the hundreds of friendships made—that occurred along the way. Filled with plans and construction details of Barkleys entire tree house village, The Best Tree House Ever leads adventurers of every age to explore the magical worlds hidden amongst the foliage.

Synopsis:

“It’s magic to be up in the arms of a tree. Listening to the whispering as the leaves play with the passing breeze. To sit below a leaf and watch the sun make it glow.”

About the Author

Maurice Barkley lives with his wife Marie in a suburb of Rochester. He is retired from a career as a commercial artist and has spent the last decade building tree houses for his grandchildren.
