Treehouse Master Pete Nelson wants to get readers up into the trees—his motto is: “Get ’er done, so you can be in a tree!”
Pete's latest book, Be in a Treehouse (2014), is filled with inspiration and practical information about treehouse design and construction. Using 21 of his own treehouses as case studies, Pete explains the newest techniques and specialized hardware that make it possible for anyone with some building experience to create treehouses that are safe, long-lasting, and not harmful to the trees.
To ignite the imagination, Pete also takes readers on a tour of 26 amazing treehouses in the United States, Europe, and Africa—ranging from a beautifully crafted Adirondack camp-style summerhouse in upstate New York to a cluster of romantic nests built from reeds in Greece.
Pete—whose infectious enthusiasm is familiar to millions of viewers of the hit Animal Planet TV show Treehouse Masters—shares the hard-won knowledge of a lifetime of building in the trees. This book is indispensable to anyone who aspires to have a treehouse: from the armchair dreamer, to the amateur builder, to the professional contractor.
