Présentation de l'éditeur

Treehouses & Playhouses You Can Build shows how average "do-it-yourself" families can easily and affordably bring to life a "Hobbit's Treehouse," a "Pirate's Playhouse," or a "Crow's Nest" in their own backyards There are a lot of books out there filled with enchanting photos of elaborate treehouses and playhouses built by professionals and costing tens of thousands to build. For the rest of us, there's bit of elbow grease, a lot of imagination, a trip to the hardware store-and Treehouses & Playhouses You Can Build. Authors David and Jeanie Stiles are the best-selling authors of a number of books on treehouses with sales of over 150,000 copies. They have created another straightforward how-to-build book filled with beautiful hand-drawn step-by-step illustrations that are easy to follow and describe in detail how to create each project. They include tips on budgeting, using basic tools, buying materials, and kid- and adult-friendly instructions Even for DIY novice types, this book simplifies the building process and inspires families of all types to work together and build cool stuff.

Perfect for the young builder 21 février 2008
Par Steve in Maine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the latest installment in a long string of wonderful books from David and Jeanie Stiles. Inside you won't find glossy, double page spreads of extravagant treehouses ... this is not a coffee table book. Rather, it is a how-to book, and the best one available for those that want to build their own whimsical play structure. Inside you will find excellent line drawings and readable explanations of intelligent, creative, and well though-out designs.

David starts with the basics: tools. From there you follow a complete and logical progression to completed treehouse. In between you'll get solid building advice. David has built his designs. He knows how to make life easier for you by using common materials and minimizing cuts. The building advice is spot on throughout.

The huge, huge, huge problem with this book is the 20 or so options David gives you for connecting lumber to tree. They are almost all bad. Never girdle a growing limb with rope or cable. Never use nails. This leaves you with only lag bolting. To be sure, there are other ways. But the only safe and tree-friendly way presented in this book (and any of his other works) is to use lags.

This is the by far the best book to give to a young builder and is probably a treasure to any 8 or 9 year old lucky enough to have a copy. It will get their mind working. The crazy schemes they come up with will amaze you.

The ideas inside this book are great. Fun, imaginative, unique. If you know a young boy (or girl) with a tree, get him this book. And when it comes time to actually build their creation, call an arborist and he'll set you straight about properly attaching it to a tree.

Great Treehouse Book! 8 mars 2007
Par Kat in Austin, TX - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is a wonderful how-to book for those who need all the help they can get on building a treehouse. The plans are great and we are building the basic treehouse which is perfect for our 8 and 5 year old kids. Lots of ideas on everything from picking trees, buying lumber, safety tips, to flexible extras. We bought all three of David Stiles treehouse books and this was by far the best and we could have just bought this one and been happy but are glad to have them all. Would highly recommend to parents contemplating building a treehouse or for kids who want to dream of one.

Exceptional Book 14 décembre 2010
Par Matthew D. Copley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought three different books on building tree houses. I have absolutely ZERO experience in building anything. I simple used the plans in this book for a basic tree house and just modified it a little bit. If I had only bought the other two books I would have probably given up on the idea. This book made it so easy that now my kids have the coolest tree house in the neighborhood. In fact, if I took a picture of this thing and sent it to the author he would probably include the picture in the next edition. The only advice I can give you is, buy this book and plan on spending double whatever you are planning to spend and you will be the coolest dad in the world.

The Ideas are great...BUT the instructions are NOT! 23 juillet 2012
Par thejamiv - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I choose the easiest project out of this book for my first..the treeless tree house, the materials list is outdated and you will not find the plywood at HD, Lowes or Lumber 86..they can substitute for you though. The instructions are great right up until it leaves out that little bit of knowledge you as a first time builder require. What angle here? How do I measure it accurately? And by cut the 2 x 8 's you mean cut them here, not here where you talk about them later. And things like, remember that when you are moving this heavy frame for the deck that it is only attached by nails and WILL come apart if not handled very carefully. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this book for newer builders, it is only useful for ideas...Not at all what I was expecting to receive, it forces you to double check the authors on things you know little about. I am halfway through my project, the pie rat ship was to be next.....but I have to reconsider, because this 'easy' project was too much wasted and repeated effort.

All the information you need 19 avril 2007
Par kilidav - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book is great. Lots of great ideas and detailed explanation on how to build a treehouse/playhouse. From how to choose the best tree to many different house plans. We just finished building a treehouse and this was the only guide we used.
