Treehouses. They fascinate children and bring out imagination in adults.

Picture of Corbin\'s Treehouse

I am one of the few crazy people in the world who built and lived in their own treehouse. I built my first one in Jr High School (1992), and then a proper one to live in when I was 20-21. I lived in it for about 5 years.

I have quite a few web pages documenting the treehouse — mainly construction of the new one, and some pictures of when it was finished. They are in the “old style” of my website, and have some outdated links (sorry!)

Start on the main page: treehouse.html.

Or, take a look at some of the finished pictures, from back in 2000: Page 7 of Treehouse Pictures.

Note that the treehouse fell down in 2009 (the floor fell out). It had survived 10 years in the trees, but the last 5 years had zero maintainence and probably contributed to beam failure.

Below are posts from the “treehouses” category on my site.
