Be inspired by the wonderful stories and treehouse pictures of our customers!
The best part of our job is seeing our customers’ treehouses – the unique shape of the trees, the unique ideas, the craftsmanship and finally the unique smiles of our fresh tree house inhabitants:)
“… the tree house is mainly intended for our 8-year-old son Toni, but is now used by the whole family. We hung it on one side of a double-trunked birch tree with the tree house screws, the other side is on wooden supports. It has two terraces: One with a lake view, the other for the evening sun.
Inside there are two levels, a main room with windows on both sides and a cosy corner above.
Next summer can come!”
“This treehouse was built during summer 2020 in Budapest, Hungary.
I need to say that having created this for the kids was definitely the best thing during covid.
Such work needs good planning, creativity and patience.
It actually helped me to develop my carpenter skills 🙂
When I finished, we tested the treehouse by the 3 of us spending a night up there.
The kids just love it!”
“It has been a good purchase, the supports look fantastic, their explanations and perfect advice, the shipment to Spain very fast, I will buy them for sure!“
“After some research I found ‘TheTreehouse.Shop’ on the internet. There is a lot of information for treehouse builders, so almost nothing can go wrong. In addition, Vitus is always available for advice and for questions. Even if you have to dig deep into your pocket for the screws, it’s worth it! The tree house can be anchored excellently in the tree and it is a permanent, fixed solution that really gives all visitors security. When you hold the solid, well-made screws in your hand, you know where you stand. With the screws, the supporting beams can be easily fixed to the tree. I can only recommend borrowing the necessary tools (ratchet and drill). Shipping is also quick and reliable.”
“Dear Vitus, finally the screws are well screwed into the trees! … A thousand thanks to you; that was really great! Now the weather is perfect and it’s great to work in the trees! We have just had the autumn holidays; so I have got on with our tree house again! It’s really becoming our heart’s desire! Huge thanks for lending us the drills!”
“This is Yuna’s treehouse.
Yuna is our “almost four” year old “big” girl. She (and her dad/me) love cartoons and that’s where the inspiration came from.
So after creating the drawings (final design was changed a bit in the end as the slide got too close to the garden’s edge), we started using to treetrunks as the front support and two Dynamic Supports from TheTreehouse.shop on the backend.
The treehouse is made from local and recycled wood/materials (except for the slide). Using the cartoon theme it is anything but straight and that created a bigger challenge than when creating a regular straight forward treehouse. The front door, for example, needed custom made hinges (made by Yuna’s grandfather), as otherwise it wouldn’t open because of everything being angled.
Hope you like it, Yuna definitely does!”
“I worked on the tree house almost every Saturday from June to August. So that we don’t always have to bring drinks and food to the tree house, I built a transport cableway from our terrace to the tree house. In the meantime, our children, the neighbour’s children, birds and squirrels have moved into the tree house.
To get to the house, you first have to climb into the apple tree to get to the bridge. I have also included my great building plan (sketch) before the work began and the topping-out ceremony.
Your bolts were very helpful for the basic construction, as I wanted to transfer the load completely to the tree, which has held so far.
“TheTreehouse.Shop made building our treehouse a lot of fun! Thank you so much! There is a lot of information on the website about planning and implementation. The online ordering runs perfectly. The screws are solid and accurately made, and with the help of the proven technology and the special tools that can be rented, they can be installed cleanly. The decisive factor is the support: I asked Vitus for advice on planning X times, and when I drilled the first hole I quickly solved a problem by phone. Enormous commitment! Any time again!”
“… After the birth of my first grandchild, I had the idea of building a tree house for him. Since the number of grandchildren has increased to four, I started the project in May of this year.
On our property we have an old walnut tree next to a small playground, which I chose for my project.
My original idea of anchoring the tree house in the fork of the tree could not be realised. Through discussions with a well-known carpenter, I became aware of your tree screws, the perfect way to fasten the tree house in this tree.
It was very important to me to build a tree house without additional supports. After I had received the screws, which I had procured through the known, I was at first impressed by the size. It took about 3 weeks until I dared to drill the holes for the tree screws (which have to be made exactly straight).
Now I didn’t have to rely on the fixing in the branch fork any more, so I was able to build the platform in such a way that you can now walk around the tree. I found it very nice that the tree kept telling me what was not possible.”
“Thank you for the helpful and friendly support!”
“Linus turned 7 this autumn – his biggest wish: a tree house!
The three mature poplars at the back of the property, which form a beautiful triangle, had been catching our eye for some time. So the date was set, with three and a half months to go until the birthday.
The basic construction was first held in place with chains, old boat ropes and webbing slings and finally hangs securely at a height of 4.5m with one treehouse screw per corner from the Treehouse Shop and has already withstood a few storms.
By Linus’ birthday, the hut was tight with refurbished windows and homemade “Klön doors” and even a small wood-burning stove. His little sister Wieka has also enthusiastically accompanied the construction and loves to climb up.”
“For my children and me it was clear that a tree house should be built. Of course, it should be as stable and safe as possible. After an intensive search on the internet, I came across the Treehouse.Shop and found everything I was looking for. Extremely stable suspensions, screws that grow into the tree, but do not destroy the tree and give a very good feeling of security. Supplemented with ideas on how to set up the tree house project. The price seemed relatively high at first, but is worth every penny due to the very high quality, the safety aspect and the good service ! The screws are very easy to install and screw in with the right tools. Of course, some effort and a corresponding extension for the ring spanner is necessary. The holes were drilled with a simple but powerful hand drill and extension cable. The pictures show the deck, which will now be completed with a wooden house with two sleeping berths.
Kudos to the Treehouse team, without their products and advice the project would not have been possible.”
“Super Hardware! Super Shop! Super advice! Super guy! Thanks Vitus and team! Even sending back the leftover screw after initial confusion due to mail no problem!”
“After Vitus relieved all my worries – first by email and then by phone – I started our tree house project in summer 2019. In October ’19 it was largely finished, but important details were still missing. Due to the birth of our third child, there were a few delays, but in the meantime the tree house is in full operation. In the summer, the second “play level” is the most frequent place for the children to go; they have exclusive access up there via a rickety rope ladder. In winter, the sauna with a view of nature is the highlight for the adults – and is also becoming increasingly popular with the youngsters.
An eye-catcher is the cedar shingling and the railing made of poplar wood (own “harvest” from the garden).
A few gimmicks are still missing (e.g. a climbing net to reach a secret flap in the tree house, a rope bridge to a higher “lookout” in the neighbouring trees), but the tree house is a complete success.”
“Your website is fantastic! Thank you for sharing all these useful information.”
“The treehouse is hidden in the trees to avoid annoying the neighbours, who by the way also love the result! The kids are getting ready for their NYE party up in the tree house, which now also doubles as a kid’s gym with the gymnastic rings.”
„Really good products and professional service. It is easy to tell that they have a lot of experience and know all the pitfalls. Highly recommended.“
“Hello Vitus, everything worked out great, … the screws are super! Thank you very much …”
„Hey Vitus, Thank you so much for your help and encouragement!“
„My day job is office based so it has been incredible to do this in my spare time for my children (aged 8 and 5).
The items I bought from your shop were fantastic and I couldn’t find them anywhere outside of the US apart from with yourselves!“
“Assembly of the GTS Allstar went well. Info on the homepage is well done!”
„I think you did a very good job selling the gear to me. Very good supper.“
“… I find your site very good so far. You can quickly find your way around. I also like all the information about tree species or fastening methods, etc.”. It’s cool that you pass on your knowledge. And, everything is very confidence-inspiring … The Strut Connector is super!”
