Treehousing: The Instructional Guide


Do you live outside the USA and want to order the Instructional Guide?

We’re pleased to offer a digital download version of Treehousing: The Instructional Guide for our international customers. Click here to order.

If you live in the USA, we still recommend ordering the hardcopy. (Spoiler: the hardcopy comes with a free gift!) Call us old fashioned, but we like a good hardcopy.

Building a treehouse? You need this guidebook in your life. 

Treehousing: The Instructional Guide covers foundational information on treehouse design and build: from selecting trees, to designing your platform, to installing specialized hardware, to applying for a permit. It's full of best practices Pete Nelson and his crew have developed from 30 years of treehouse-building. Consider it requisite reading before taking to the trees.

We revamped our first edition of Treehousing, adding up-to-date techniques and new figures. This is Treehousing 2.0: an essential part of every treehouse-builder’s toolkit. 

  •  Size: 8.5 " x 11"
  •  38 pages, plus blank sheets of graph paper for note-taking 

Please note: One complimentary copy of Treehousing: The Instructional Guide is included with each set of treehouse plans. If you're ordering plans, you do not need to order this guide again. (Unless you'd like two copies—then by all means go for it!)
