Tree houses are everywhere.
They’re built from old, recycled materials and can be built in almost any climate, making them a great solution for those who want to live in an open space without the threat of flooding.
But like most DIY solutions, tree houses can have a few issues.
They can be messy, messy when you’re moving, and messy for your neighbors, too.
We’re going to walk you through how to make sure your tree house will look good, maintainability, and be safe.1.
Clean the walls.2.
Install a floor plan.3.
Put up a tree canopy.4.
Install an exterior door.5.
Secure your tree.
We’ll start with the basics.1) Clean the Walls: You need to remove the old wallpaper and paint it a bright shade of green, so that your home looks like a tropical paradise.2) Install a Floor Plan: This is the part where you’ll be looking at a lot of materials and deciding what to use.
Choose a large wall to house your space, and use it for a deck or for a backyard patio.
Make sure that the ground level of the space is nice and level.
Make a plan of your tree, or you might be tempted to build it on top of the walls just to save space.3) Put Up a Tree: The tree you’re planning on growing is a big part of your plan.
Choose something with a high trunk to make it easier to get your tree on the ground and get some shade.
Make it tall enough that the tree can grow on it.4) Secure Your Tree: This will be your main concern.
You’re not going to build a tree if you can’t secure it to your wall or to the ground.
You want to make a small hole in the wall that will allow for your tree to grow, and that hole should be a little larger than the height of your trunk.
The bigger the hole, the less chance you’ll have of it breaking.5) Install an External Door: A few common questions when it comes to installing an external door are, “Where should it go?” and “Where will it be locked?”
This will depend on your tree’s height, and you’ll need to decide if you’ll install it on the outside of the wall or in the middle of it.
Make your choice carefully, as you’ll want to give your tree some room to grow before installing the door.6) Install the Tree: Now that you have your tree ready, it’s time to put it into the ground, to get the tree planted.
Use a small, flat, metal rod to hold it in place while you plant it.
Place the tree trunk in a vertical position on the bottom of the hole you drilled in the floor plan, so you can get it planted later on.
(If you’re a tree-hating tree-farming fanatic, you can also make the tree a tree pole, which is a very simple way to get a tree in the ground.)7) Secure the Tree and Install the Door: Now you’ve got your tree planted, you need your tree door.
If you’re not sure what you want to do with the tree door, try it out on a wall or wall bracket that will hold the door in place.
If it doesn’t work, try making a tree door out of wood or plastic, or maybe even a piece of chain.8) Put the Tree Door in Place: Your tree door is ready for its final touches.
You’ll want it to be at least 6 inches tall, and it should have a hole that’s a little bit smaller than the top of your door.
Install the chain on the side of the door, and put the door on the inside.
If the tree has a tree trunk, it will probably fit inside the door as well, but you might need to move it slightly closer to the tree to get it into position.
If that’s not an option, you might have to cut the chain off at one point.9) You’re Done!
You’re ready to take your tree home!
Now that you’ve had the tree and its tree door installed, it can be your backyard or bedroom.
You can make your tree the centerpiece of your space.
It might be a beautiful addition to your living space, or it might be just a decorative piece of wood.
Whatever your style, you’ll know you’ve done your part when your tree is standing in the backyard or a tree room, ready to be enjoyed by the neighbors.
