The Marblemount Light Duty’s open-air platform is built to host you and a friend (or two) for soaking in sunsets, sipping drinks, and stargazing. At 180 square feet, the Marblemount Light is just the right size for a couple chairs and a table, positioned for optimal views of the surrounding nature. Unlike the heavy-duty version of Marblemount, this plan is not suited for weighty snow loads or intended to be modified with walls—it’s meant to be the perfect unenclosed deck for temperate climates.
The tree depicted in the plan set is a cedar with a 23-inch diameter. Don’t be deceived by the overall simplicity of the design: the single-tree element coupled with the degree of precision involved in the hardware installation gives this platform a four-out-of-five difficulty rating.*
Our designs are meant to be customized to your trees and lifestyle: we encourage you to make it your own! Treehouse-building is an organic process – our crew almost always innovates onsite with spontaneous tweaks to the original design. Stay flexible, get creative, and have fun – even (or especially) when you’re deep in head-scratching moments of treehouse troubleshooting. To the trees!
