Tree House Plans from Treehouse Guides
We begin by taking a closer look at three designs from Treehouse Guides, two of which are shown at the top of this post. The San Pedro tree house is affixed to a single tree, and it offers 64 square feet of floor space, including some outdoor square footage. Six windows and a landing with railings are additional highlights. [from Treehouse Guides]
Next we have the Zelkova treehouse, which is built across two trees and features four windows that let the sunlight in. A covered deck is a key feature of this eye-catching design, which also offers 64 square feet of floor space. [from Treehouse Guides]
The Outpost tree fort provides 42 square feet of floor space, and while there is no roof, this fort is surrounded by railings for safety purposes. A ladder guides inhabitants through a trap door in the floor for a grand entrance that is truly fort-worthy! [from Treehouse Guides]
