What were your first steps then?
At first I asked Twan about his treehouse ideas. Since he didn’t have any experience or clue, I made a draft on the computer the way I could imagine it to be like. I actually imagined it to become a bed. And I wanted to keep it simple and symmetric. And slowly the shape evolved. And I made sure the treehouse would stay dry inside. Also the ladder is detachable at the bottom so it can hang free under the platform and be protected from the weather there. I made all the preparations for the single construction parts at the bottom of the tree.
How do you use your treehouse?
Last summer we spent some nights in it. I can imagine very good to withdraw for a nap or with a good book there. A fireplace in the treehouse would also be an idea.
