Présentation de l'éditeur

As children, many people dreamed of having a tree house, a place where they could get away to play and relax. Today, more and more people are making this dream a reality for their children, especially in the United States, England, Germany, France, and Brazil but it does not have to be just for children. (In fact, Corbin Dunn, 31, took up a permanent residence in a tree house in Santa Cruz, California for five years.) The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House will show you how to create one of these sky-high getaways, whether it is a child s play area or an adult hideaway.

The oldest documented tree house is located in England on the grounds of Pitchford Hall and dates back to the 17th century. This proves that a tree house can be a lasting investment, especially if you choose the right tree and the right materials. This book will show you how to select a tree, prepare the tree, purchase the best materials, use the right tools, and buy lumber. You will learn about the tree house basics and the anatomy of a stable tree house, including four corners, diagonal support, sturdy flooring, a reliable ladder and railing, and a leak-proof roof.

In this book you will also learn about waterproofing, safety precautions, and building regulations and restrictions. You will be provided with design, building, and decorating tips, as well as non-technical drawings to aid you in the building process. You will learn about supports, windows, skylights, and tree house designs, such as shingled, two trees and two posts, and perch. Also included is an additional section on all the accessories you can add on to your house, like a ladder hoist, a fireman’s pole, swings, a zip line, a pulley and basket, a crow’s nest, a rope bridge, slides, and a trap door.

Whether you are building a tree house for your child or for yourself, The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House will provide you with dozens of helpful tips, tricks, and suggestions from people who have already undertaken this endeavor. With the help of this book, your treetop hideaway will quickly become a reality.

Par Curt Twain - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As I write this review, there are eight others rating this book at four or five stars. None of these prior reviews are from verifed purchasers.

I have read several tree house books, and this was recently published so I purchased it.

Note that only half the book (chapters 1- 10) contains 'useful' content. The remainder of the book is a collection of plans (duplicated on the included CD, why did the publisher reprint all of it?) and case studies. The content is weak and supported by very few diagrams (e.g., Chapter 5 "Building the platform" contains no diagrams, and only a single picture).

I cannot recommend this book and returned it. The "Black and Decker Build your kids a Treehouse" is excellent and aimed at an adult audience. If you would like a more kid friendly book, those written by the Stiles are perfect.

At last someone has written the COMPLETE book on building a tree house. Where was this book when I needed it? If you searched the bookstores and internet, you found great picture books but nothing that went deep into the actual concerns that arise when building. This book has both the practical for the beginner and the refined for the advanced. Is there any reason not to buy this book? Really, the only reason not to buy it is if what you are building isn't more than a hunter's platform. For anything else, this is the book.

Par Reba B. Hilbert - Publié sur
Format: Broché
When I was young, we bought a home in northern Idaho--a real fixer-upper with many interesting features. But there was one thing that sold my sister and me on our new home, and that was the stunning tree house in the backyard. It was painted to match the house, with double doors and a small wood-burning stove. We spent countless hours in that tree house, and it contributed to many of my childhood memories. The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House took me back to those happy times, and hopefully it will inspire parents everywhere to create a space for their own children to play and dream and get away from it all.

This book is full of great advice--on everything from location, zoning, structure, safety precautions, and design. It's also loaded with full-color photographs, diagrams, and information on the tools and materials you'll need to build your own little getaway. Whether you're planning on building a backyard tree house for your children, or designing a more grown-up space for guests and relatives, The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House literally has everything you need to get started. And it's written in a way that is not intimidating, even to a novice builder. There's practical advice and easy-to-follow instructions, and I hope many families will take on this wonderful project and bring fun and joy into their lives.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Want a Tree House? Then You Can Build One With This Book 10 mars 2010
Par Sylvia McClain - Publié sur
Format: Broché
As a child, did you dream of building a tree house? The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House: For Parents and Adults Who Are Kids at Heart by Robert Miskimon is the book to have. But there is one catch; you must be like minded in mechanical thoughts as construction builders. I say this because the book reads as if it was written for those who understand building terms and already like to build things.

I, personally, had a difficult time reading the book because I knew none of the terms used in the construction industry. Yet, I think the book was still well written. Why? There were lots of pictures to explain things like the right/wrong trees to build in, types of tools to be used, nails and screws and their different types and sizes. Tables such as the one on page 38, is another example of good information given. Did you know dimensional lumber sizes are not what you think they are? The aforementioned table shows the true dimensions of a 2x2 inch board. Its true dimensions are really 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 inches.

Something else to be noted about the book, when it comes to framing sections (doors, walls, windows) for the tree house, Miskimon said to think like you were building a house on the ground for parts of the tree house. Build them on the ground then raise them up later. He used the example of home builders you see on any street, bringing doors, windows, etc. already built to the scene of the house to install. Sample articles are written throughout the book showing how others who had dreams and wanted to have tree houses succeeded at building them by being careful in their construction.

Lastly, another reason the book is a good one is the instructions are given in minute details. Even an individual like me, who has no desire to build a thing, if I followed the instructions given I probably would be able to build a tree house. But again, you must really, really, really, want to build one. However you feel about building a tree house, one thing is for sure, the only book you need is The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House: For Parents and Adults Who Are Kids at Heart. Even I, who would pay someone else to build a tree house for me, would ask the person to definitely read Robert Miskimon's book first.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Realize the Wonder of Childhood for Your Children & Reawaken Your Dreams from Childhood 8 mars 2010
Par Michael K. Miller - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Building Your Own Tree House is a roadmap for bringing childhood fantasies to life and reawakening adult imagination in life. Author Robert Miskimon succeeds in offering a detailed plan to realize the wonder of childhood for kids and to reawaken the dreams from childhood for adults.

Miskimon's Tree House flows into your mind and heart in a crisp, clear writing style, complimented by engaging, compelling graphics and pictures and informative, helpful charts, tables, and diagrams. The content and substance of Tree House are organized and presented effectively and efficiently. In ten chapters from "Getting Your Feet on the Ground," "Planning and Design," "Tools and Materials," and "Safety Concerns" through "Building the Platform," "Doors, Walls, and Windows," and "Raise High the Roof Beam" to "The Most Important Part: Getting the Kids Involved," Miskimon's Tree House joyfully lays out an easy-flowing and natural plan to bring your past and your children's present into a shared future. Ten Case Studies drawn from actual tree house projects by lay tree house aficionados add personal perspectives to the tree house building experience. A 106-page Chapter 11 details step-by-step plans for 15 different, distinctive tree houses.

The Complete Guide to Building Your Own Tree House: for Parents and Adults Who Are Kids at Heart is a must read and do for adults from any time and for their children of any age. It is a five-star gift to every adult with unrealized childhood dreams and the adult responsibility and opportunity of parenthood.
