What is the tree made out of? - Would love to make a tree that hangs over my child's bed....is that made out of wire and paper mache?

Our treehouse is interior but actually houses an elevator. The trunk surface is an epoxy polymer that is formed to create the bark. There may be some interior applications that would allow for papier mache, but for durable surfaces that get kid duty, I would recommend the epoxy polymer surfaces. A good contractor can get you in touch with the right craftsmen in your area. Best of luck! Warren Lloyd

Lawrence Karol added this to 9 Incredible Treehouses
Some treehouses are built with more than just fun and games in mind. "This one belongs to a great family with a special-needs daughter," says architect Warren Lloyd. "It occupies the loft level of the house, and the trunk conceals a residential lift that ensures the daughter has access to all parts of the house." He adds that many elements, like the branches nested under the deck, were the owners' ideas. The tree trunk was framed in wood, and the branches are a steel frame. Both were finished with epoxy resin and synthetic materials.
