Yo ho and up she rises

Treehouse main platform - Harptree CourtNow the treehouse base is talking shape, One day nothing is visible and then suddenly we have the basic supporting structure in place.

Standing underneath the legs you begin to understand the scale of what we are doing!

Meanwhile the yurt bases have also sprung up, waiting for the doors and windows now.

The Treehouse floor goes in

Seeing the oversize timbers go in just makes everyone who sees it go Wow!
The platform seemed to start slowly, but this accelerated and once the sections of the floor arrived they went down almost straight away.
The walkway is made so that it can move with the oak tree. The ballistrade supports are delightfully wiggly
The way in goes up these stairs and over a platform in the oak tree
The base of the treehouse itself is now in position

The treehouse walkway underway

Treehouse platform starts - Harptree CourtThe first bit of the treehouse walkway is being put in place with the specially designed anchors minimising the impact on the oak tree. The way up to the treehouse will start with steps up to a platform in this mature oak tree. The platform support structure is now being added. As you can see one piece has been carefully shaped around one of the branches.

Treehouse starts at last!

Treehouse pruning 2 - Harptree CourtWhoppee! After about a year of delays I can hardly believe that work is actually beginning on the treehouse.
Step 1 is to remove some sycamore trees and laurel to make room for the structure whilst retaining everything else so that the treehouse floats amongst the trees. We used Adam Clark for all the high tree work.
There isn’t much more to see yet but over the next 3-4 weeks we should get up to Platform height, I can’t wait….
