What Houzz contributors are saying:

Finding the right tree took time. Brown walked the property with the land’s caretaker; they used harnesses to hoist themselves into the canopies to get a better sense of the views. She eventually chose a 90-foot spruce tree as the anchor. “It was just so much stronger and more majestic than all the trees around it,” Brown says. “We climbed up, and the views were perfect.”The little house sits on a platform that’s connected to the tree by bolts and suspension cables. The tree trunk will grow around the bolts rather than around the house (tree tops grow up, while trunks expand outward). The house “sways with the tree, so you feel like you’re on a ship — which is slightly nerve-racking, but if you trust that your tree house designer has engineered it properly, you know you’re safe,” says Brown.

Bolts & suspension cables hold the platform on which the tree house sits. The trunk will grow out around the bolts (tree tops grow up, trunks expand outwards). Clever!
