Here is a list of the basic tools you will need:
Make sure to build this right. If the main supporting structure is weak, or poorly built, the final treehouse won’t last very long. Once you finish building the structure, you can begin to assemble the main platform.
You can either build this directly onto the supports or prebuild and mount in sections.
Install some braces to prevent the treehouse from wobbling or even collapsing under its own weight. This important to make your treehouse safe.
With the main supporting structure, platform and braces in place, the next phase is to get the main flooring down to create a platform.
With the main platform and railing/walls in place, you now need to add a means of access and egress to the treehouse. A basic ladder is usually the best
To finish your treehouse, think about the kind of roof you want for your treehouse. You can either build a more robust structure from wood, or other materials or simply set up a tarpaulin or other weatherproof fabric.
