There?s a House at the Top of a Tree

quote [ Bottom line on building a treehouse: it was totally worth it. You should build one, too. ]

I?ve always had tree houses on the brain ? not the ones they build on TV with big crews and a huge budget, but the attainable DIY sort that are fully tree-dependent. In extended are the stories of people rolling their own that inspired me to build mine.

First post on the new SE, be rough.

Is that an albino hot dog on the right there at the end?

I want to believe.

I believe it is a finger.

People actually hire tree house builders?

You mean, professionally, you can be a certified builder of tree houses?!

You can be anything, you just can't be everything. Software guy, brewmeister, dinosaur, treehouser? Pick something, for cryin' out loud.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an fancy dress party, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a treehouse, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, brew beer, roar ferociously in a dinosaur hat, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, agitate peacefully, live forever. Specialization is for insects.

Somebody better know how to set a bone, I'll give you that.

Are there many humans that know how to live forever?
ComposerNate said @ 10:50pm GMT on 5th Feb
Part of living forever is keeping a low head.

there is a 'reality' show called Treehouse Masters on US tv about tree house builders. my kids loved it.

I hope the mice in the woods don't have a plan to eat the house.

Nothing about building a treehouse is more important than ensuring you're not going to get hurt doing it.
Maybe the end user not getting hurt. I remember falling from a tree as a kid and being fortunate enough to land in a pile of sand, rather than draped across a spine-snapping bench or parked bike. The landing zone is important, too.

Making love in a treehouse is a fantasy of mine that dates all the way back to the very first pubic hair.

My specialty is being highly inappropriate in all situations, pleasure to meet you.

After reading this, security has been increased from pulling up a portion of the ladder to armed drones and a treehouse rottweiler.

My gf wanted to know what the difference between nerd and geek, so she looked up the Chinese translations.

Nerd: bookworm
Geek: weird fetus

the latter means that's how you are born

Just to be clear, this treehouse in the main post is or isn't the one you built?
