There is something about a treehouse that is both fanciful and compelling. Who doesn’t like treehouses? If given the opportunity to stay for a night or two… or to live in, would you jump at the chance?
In the case of Pete Nelson, treehouses became a lifetime love and fascination that stayed with him into adulthood. Since the launch of the TreeHouse Workshop in 1997, Pete has established the Northwest Treehouse School, the Treehouse Point retreat centre, and is also working on a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to bringing people with disabilities into nature and treehouses, Tree for All Foundation.
He also has several published books that range from tips on how to build treehouses to books featuring his beautiful creations, including the coffee table book, Treehouses of the World, that feature many of his creations from around the world.
I don’t know about you, but I find his treehouses breathtaking. I’ve included some of them below.
