Be in a Treehouse : Design / Construction / Inspiration
Design / Construction / Inspiration
Pete Nelson, the world's best-known treehouse designer and builder, wants to put readers in trees - his motto is, "get 'er done, so you can BE in a TREE. " His new book is a comprehensive source of inspiration and practical information about treehouse design and construction. To that end, he shares the basics of treehouse construction with his own recent projects as case studies. Using photographs taken especially for this project along with diagrams, he covers the selection and care of trees, and explains the fundamentals of building treehouse platforms. To ignite the imagination, Nelson presents 27 treehouses in the United States, Europe, and Africa. The book will be indispensible to anyone who aspires to have a treehouse, from the armchair dreamer, to the amateur builder, to the professional contractor.
Pete Nelson's previous books include Treehouses of the World (2004) and New Treehouses of the World (2009). Nelson is the host of "Treehouse Masters," a show on Animal Planet that chronicles the construction of a treehouse in each hour-long episode, which launched on May 31, 2013.
