A Frame Tree House with Zip Line

This tree house is one I just designed and completed for a family in Connecticut. A budget overall (incorporating lots of salvaged materials), it was built over the course of a few weekends. This tree fort, or tree cabin, has a front “Tuftex multi-wall” window that drops open, two small decks, and even a bench in the cradle of the tree that sits two. Built with locally milled pine it also has tuftex roof, interior bench, and a small built in desk. Its no big-budget Pete Nelson Tree House Masters tree house, thats for sure, but still a fun one at 1/30th the budget. If there is enough interest, we might have a plan set developed for this one, as the build/design worked out very well. Something like this could definitely work for an Airbnb or hip-camp cabin rental- for glamping….

  1. This is exactly what my daughter wants to do in our backyard. We have the perfect trees and setting for this! Great design and finished project! Love it. ❤️

  2. Thanks for checking the video out- I’m slowly working on a new tree house book and might want to showcase YOUR builds- any tree house owners/builders out there…. message me through FB- “Derek Diedricksen”. Looking for simple, affordable, “keeping it real” tree houses mainly- not so much the $100k ones…..

  3. Nice, looks affordable and could have many uses. Should have a big swimming pool at the end of the zip line with a drop for a little added excitement.

  4. Every kids dream in this build!!!!! Looks like you had some excellent assistants helping you on the build! The family has a beautiful property! Stay safe and thank you for sharing!!!
