Welcome To Treehouse Dreambuilders
I built custom homes in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia for many years. The art of creating oceanview decks high above the water’s edge, tucked into the West Coast landscape, inspired me to look even higher up into the trees.
From Vision to Creation
I have always been passionate about building. My love of nature was discovered at 12-years-old when I built my first tree fort. Now living in Colorado, I have built our flagship, The Little Red Treehouse, a fully functional guest house with a small, simple kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and patio spaces. You are welcome to visit. It may inspire your ideas and help you clarify what will make you happiest with your own treehouse project.
My goal is to provide your vision with the highest level of craftsmanship combined with innovative design and engineering. Your project might be as simple as a decktop meditation retreat, an artist’s studio, or a couples’ getaway. I will teach you what I know about making your treehouse an effective and satisfying investment.
No matter what we build together, my commitment is to make your treehouse a dream come true for you as a place of peace and reflection, embodying your distinct personality.
Most counties allow for construction without plans or building permit for structures under 120sf. Projects over that size will require normal contracting services that include plans and a building permit. We have a professional draftsman for projects over 120 square feet.
All key beams are attached to the trees with specialized engineered treehouse hardware, mindful of safety in both design and execution. All electrical and plumbing will comply with building codes in your area, and we will closely coordinate with you to get the aesthetic finishes that make all the difference to your experience.
We carefully select materials that will withstand the unique local climate and support the treehouse for many years to come. We often integrate cedar and other woods with qualities best suited for life high in the treetops.
Conscious planning to maximize efficiency of space requires building useful storage compartments into the walls and making best use of interior heights. We will offer ways for you to create a detailed interior for whatever specific use you have in mind.
We promise to do our very best to turn your treehouse dream into reality and meet or exceed your expectations for beauty and magic.
