Many people and not just kids dream about having their own treehouse. With this very practical and personal guide, it can come true! Not only is this an attractive record of author Maurice Barkleys appealing creations, but it delves into every aspect of planning and construction teaching others how to build them too. In a friendly, conversational tone, Barkley offers time-tested advice on safety for both builder and user and meticulously outlines each step, from raising a ground-built platform into the tree to bolting and anchoring the structure. Dozens of sidebars, how-to illustrations and photos accompany detailed plans and the amount of information conveyed is amazing: tools and materials; tree basics; house designs, including ones hung between two trees and others with self-supporting platforms; maintenance and even costs.

This is the best tree house book available at the library right now if you want to build a child's basic fort or house in or near a tree. Many of the other books are very elaborate and are for creating a real livable space in a tree. This is so basic it makes it easy to do even for the inexperienced and even if you don't have a tree! Once the basics are completed then make it as fancy and intricate as you want. But you gotta have the basics.
