Treehouse Trivia
What is the largest treehouse Pete's crew has ever built?
Unfortunately, the record holder for this category burned down in a wildfire in 2008. It was a 920 square foot treehouse, with another 600 square feet of outdoor deck space.
The largest "surviving" treehouse, however, is the Italian Water Garden treehouse at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. It boasts 860 square feet of interior space, plus a 500 square foot outdoor deck.

The trees themselves are the ultimate designers. I just listen to what they say and build in harmony with them  |  Pete Nelson

Measure twice, cut once, right? A poorly planned treehouse will take longer to build, will cost more and probably won't live up to your dream. Do it right the first time!

At Nelson Treehouse and Supply the way we do it right the first time is by encouraging our customers to become part of the team, sharing with us their vision for the perfect treehouse and providing feedback during each of the four steps that guide the planning process:

Concept. During a Site Visit, we listen closely to your ideas about the treehouse of your dreams. We choose the best tree(s) in which to locate your treehouse (see Tree Selection). Then, armed with details about your vision and your trees, Pete puts pencil to paper and creates drawings of the treehouse that he envisions for your unique site.

Budgeting. With the concept drawings complete (including your feedback that the drawings match your vision), a preliminary estimated budget is created.

Drafting. The concept drawings of your unique treehouse are turned into buildable plans. The drawings and a hard bid are typically completed within 2-3 weeks of the site visit.

Modeling. An optional 3-D model helps you visualize your treehouse and make changes before the build begins.

Ready to take the next step? We would love to help build your dream treehouse. Please fill out this short questionnaire. Due to the high volume of requests that we have received in the last couple of months we are doing our best to get back to everyone. Please be patient when awaiting a response and know that we are taking the time to read through every request.
