Treehouse Construction from the Ground Up

Sustainable living and tiny homes are garnering widespread attention from social media through high level architectural publications. Treehouses generally hold a special place in people’s minds, conjuring notions of childhood forts or relaxing getaways.  Additionally, building a Treehouse requires a general knowledgebase for tree care, carpentry, and rigging.  This course is taught by a passionate and enthusiastic Treehouse builder and general woodworker with a master’s degree in civil engineering.  He is currently working on his doctoral degree in architecture at Princeton and has designed and constructed Treehouses around the United States. The course will cover the basics of:

  • Treehouse platform construction that is minimally harmful to the tree
  • Treehouse specific carpentry
  • General carpentry
  • General tree care and maintenance
  • How to include plumbing and electricity in the trees
  • Dealing with permitting at the township level


We’ll cover the basics for building in the trees, skills that you can apply to building your own getaway for yourselves, children, or guests.  The knowledge is also applicable to general home repairs and yard maintenance.

This 8 hour course is delivered on two evenings (4 hours each).  

DATE: November 2 and November 3, 2017 from 5:30 to 9:30 PM, Donaghay Hall, Room 106
