Default Pirate ship treehouse

Never saw one like this before. But it seems like an awful lot of work to be giving it to someone else. I wouldn't even dream of making one, unless it was going to be for myself.

I wonder how well the redwoods handle the zinc coated lag bolts. Some trees die from galvanized nails, and usually lag bolts are hot dip galvanized.

That said, he did a great job on that tree house.


My neighbor built a 3 story one on a big cotton wood tree that was on the Bonneville Power Line Property rubbing against his back fence. It was there for several years,then someone complained and they made him remove it and they fell the tree.

Wow that’s a lot of work. Wish I had that kind of ambition.
Dan,I heard they were outlawing tree houses in BC . I guess there have been to many injuries when they come crashing down

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Rick; I'd bet dollars to donuts it's the same control freaks that want to ban everything else.
Don't want us plebes doing anything that's not regulated to death.
Same a**h**ts that won't allow the Euros to use a dado set.
OK; fair enough. Some of these 'treehouses' are right up there with Trump Tower or Noah's Ark, and are probably really annoying to the neighbors, but all the same...

My first thought on a tree house is the liability issue. What if someone falls and gets hurt? I know that can apply to the sidewalk but the distance to the ground is shorter. Zoning is another thing. There was a news blurb about a couple who spent a ton of $$$ on a tree house and had to tear it down because of zoning ordinances. My father had a business in FL in the mid 70s. Subdivision regulations wouldn't let him keep the company car with the company logo in the driveway. He had to keep it in the garage.

Sounds like they didn't get the permits. The fine is loads more than the permit fees.
