A Little Tree House in the Garden

A house can be a home, and there are many different types of houses out there. Some of them are little and cute like this little tree house that we have here in the garden. This is the place where birds live and play, but they also come to sleep there at night when it’s time to rest. The birds are very comfortable there because they have everything they need in the tree house; water, food, and shelter from bad weather conditions as well as predators! They can also sing their beautiful songs from there without anybody bothering them!

How to build a garden treehouse

Garden treehouses are a great way to encourage your kids to spend more time outside. Not only is it a fun activity, but you’ll also be able to spend more time with them. It’s easy for kids to get bored and antsy when they have nothing to do, so this project will keep them entertained for hours. You can build your garden treehouse in any size, shape or color as long as you remember to anchor it securely.

You can use either cinder blocks or boulders. A single level is best if you’re going to climb up into it yourself because of its size limitations. One of the simplest things that make a garden treehouse perfect is adding decking at ground level around the base of the trunk where kids can play on (and not fall off). But before anything else, first decide on where you want your garden treehouse to go because that determines how big or small it needs to be and what type of materials you need!


Things to consider before you begin building

1) Planting a tree. 2) Choosing a location for your tree house. 3) Building and furnishing your tree house. 4) Giving your tree house a name. 5) Decorating with lights. 6) Planning what you want to do inside of your tree house. 7) Making sure you’re safe while building and living in it. 8) Getting help from friends to build it. 9) Addressing any special needs or allergies of those who will be using the tree house. 10) Encouraging all users, including adults, to keep their tree houses clean and neat. 11) Finding new ways to enjoy time together in your tree house–both big and small adventures!

Getting Started – Design & Planning

The first step is to decide what you want. Do you want a little tree house or a playhouse? The size of your space will help determine which option is best. A playhouse is smaller and will work well if you don’t have a lot of yard space, but it will limit the scope of what your kids can do inside. On the other hand, a tree house has more room for activities like reading and playing games. If you’re building on the ground, think about location: does this spot get enough sunlight during parts of the day? Does this location offer shelter from rain or wind? And lastly, who is going to build it? If you are handy with tools then take on this project yourself; if not find someone who loves doing DIY projects.

The Wooden Floor

The floor of our little tree house is made from alder wood. The wood is responsibly sourced and harvested from sustainable sources, which means that it will not be deleted. It is also very durable and strong, making it perfect for use as a floor. Unlike many other types of wood, this type will not rot or decay easily if it gets wet or starts to break down; instead, the surface becomes smoother and more attractive over time. The color darkens and acquires an attractive patina. If there are any splinters sticking out, they can be sanded down with fine-grit sandpaper to make them disappear!

Securing the base

The base of a tree house provides a solid foundation. It is important to secure your base so that it does not shift or tip over when someone climbs up or down. The easiest way to do this is by digging a hole for the foundation to sit in and filling it with gravel, cement, or some other kind of hardening substance. This will create a stable surface that doesn’t give way when weight is applied. If you don’t want to fill your hole with a hardening material, then stack bricks or cinder blocks around the perimeter of the hole instead. Remember to make sure they are wide enough apart to fit over the edge of your tree house floorboards!

What goes up must come down

We’ve all heard that phrase. We might hear it when a child falls from something and we tell them, you know what happens when things go up? They come back down. We might hear it as a warning before jumping off a diving board into the pool. We might even hear it when someone tries to quit smoking, telling themselves they will not stay on this new path for long because they know what happens to people who give up smoking: they come back around to cigarettes eventually. It is true in every situation that goes up must come down. I was born in Beijing, China, and came to America when I was just 10 months old.

Now after living here my whole life I have been looking at going back home soon. My sister is also coming with me so she can experience the culture of her heritage too. My dad has been teaching us Chinese since we were little kids so it should be pretty easy for us to pick up on what we need to know once we get there

So what’s next?

Building a tree house is a great project for kids and parents to work on together. The tree house can be as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be. With adult supervision, children can learn how to use power tools to construct their own little tree house and have some fun at the same time. After you’ve built your tree home, don’t forget to add a little something extra like an outdoor staircase, slide, or swinging bridge for added play value!
