What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another loft inside provides a fort within a fort.

The three trees play an integral part inside. A chain is bolted into each tree and connects to metal brackets attached to the foundation to take weight off timbers that aren't fastened to the tree. The metal brackets slide back and forth, allowing the tree to expand and grow over time without affecting the tree house. Each bolt fastened to the tree is stainless steel, which won't decay inside the tree. "This tree house has been designed to last for the long haul. If it's preserved every four to five years with a good exterior sealer, it'll last. That, of course," Jonker adds, "depends on the trees' staying healthy."
