With the treehouse platform in place, our focus is now on the treehouse and railing. The crowsnest platform is in place 15 feet above the main platform and it’s access ladder is being built. Rain started during the night and has continued this morning. Our excitement for rain in California made this little bit of inconvenience well worth it! Take a look at our progress:
It’s been a really busy first week getting started on the treehouse, crowsnest, and 2 additional platforms in a different tree on top of the hill. There have certainly been challenges, but so far we’ve found solutions to overcome them! This eucalyptus has turned out to be a great tree for the treehouse and crowsnest.
It’s a beautiful day to start building the platform. 2×12 pressure treated joists are being hoisted into place.
A great new treehouse project is underway near Healdsburg, CA in the beautiful Alexander Valley wine country. Design by Michael Shulters of Treehouse Nation and tree modeling by John Shulters of Ascension Studios. Dan Wright from Treetop Builders and his great crew from Pennsylvania have joined us to round out our expert team! A special Thanks to Dan Murphy of Murphy Touch, Inc. who expertly took care of the steel work welding and fabrication today. Check out our progress over the first 2 days as we get the support structure and large beams in place. A lot of creativity was required to move the beams into position and get the placement just right.
Stay tuned over the next 2 weeks to watch this treehouse take shape!.
