Publisher Comments:

There has always been romance and magic in the idea of living in the treetops. Here's a book to satisfy even the most vivid imagination.

However appealing the fantasy, the reality of designing and building a treehouse is a daunting challenge. Once accomplished, however; the rewards are a source of endless pleasure. Treehouses features the stories of more than 20 not-so-ordinary people who turned their dreams into real treehouses. This is a collection of the pinnacles of treehouse construction selected from all over the globe, from frigid Scandinavia to the tropics of Hawaii, with plenty of stops in between.

This is more than a wish book. You'll learn how to:

  • Re-create a wilderness spirit in your own backyard
  • Build your treehouse in the way that is best for the tree and the forest
  • Make building your treehouse as much fun as living in it
This little book is practical, bold, and inspiring. With an introduction and practical "Make It" section by acclaimed author and architect David Pearson, Treehouses gives you both the information and motivation to build your own treetop home.

Book News Annotation:

From elegant "treesorts" to arboreal protest camps, 22 eco-friendly treehouses are featured in builder/owner/guest accounts with color photos. The founder of the Ecological Design Association (UK) includes building tips, resources, and treehouse poetry.
