August 18, 2017Treehouse Framing DIY Tutorial – Your First Rake Wall!

We get tons of questions about the carpentry techniques our Treehouse Masters use in the prefab process – DIYers are curious about how to take traditional framing to the trees. Nelson Treehouse and Supply’s shop wizard Griffin is here to help answer a few of those questions! 

In our video below, Griffin walks us through how to frame a treehouse rake wall on a 6/12 pitch. He breaks down carpentry terms and the math behind the process, so you can apply the same concepts to your own unique treehouse.

Check out the video and let us know in the comments what other treehouse carpentry basics you’d like to see Griffin explain!


We hope you found our tutorial on treehouse framing illuminating!
