As someone still in the creative dreaming phase rather than the sawing and nailing phase I have found this book great fun, and an inspiration for different ideas re the tree house we might build. On the basis of this book I have discounted some potential locations (trunk girth not substantial enough; wrong tree.... birch; might wash away next to river) and counted in some others. I also feel reassured that if I space any screws correctly I won't harm the tree.
Hopefully someone who has BUILT their tree house with this book as a guide will review it too to see how it shapes up in practice!

This is a very good book, with nice colour pictures for ideas, but also has the breakdown of the drawings so you can follow them to make the treehouse. As sponsored by Black&Decker it obviously recommends what tools you need for the job.
