“In the Italian version, you can see all phases of construction”

 

Build a little house on the tree

 

 

THE LONGSTANDING PASSION FOR CONVENTIONAL BUILDING TECHNIQUES HAS SHIFTED, OVER THE YEARS, TOWARDS THE MORE RECENT AND FUTURISTIC VISION OF A WORLD IN WHICH THE WORD “BIO” HAS BECOME AN INTEGRAL PART OF BUILDING AND ITS RELATED ACTIVITIES.

 

IS THERE ANYONE WHO NEVER DREAMED OF HAVING A TREEHOUSE AS A CHILD? WELL, I SET MYSELF THIS TARGET A WHILE BACK AND NOW, SEVERAL YEARS AND THREE KIDS ON, I REALISED THAT THE MOMENT HAD FINALLY ARRIVED, AND NOT HAVING A BIG ENOUGH TREE FOR THE PROJECT I DECIDED TO PUT UP A POLE AND BUILD THE TREEHOUSE ON TOP OF THAT.

 

 

I SET OUT ON MY VENTURE WITH A DRAWING AND SOME WOOD, AND, OF COURSE, AN IDEA OF THE BASIC SAFETY AND ENGINEERING RULES THAT I WOULD HAVE TO APPLY.
THE STRUCTURE WOULD BE USED BY CHILDREN, SO I DECIDED TO USE WHOLE PLYWOOD PANELS; I REUSED THE SAME PLYWOOD CUT OUT FOR THE DOOR, WINDOWS AND TRAP-DOOR TO CLOSE THE OPENINGS, USING WOOD SLATS TO CLAD THE EXTERIOR AND MAKE THE FLOOR, THE RAILING IS SECURED BY MEANS OF A POLE (JUST LIKE THOSE USED TO HANG CURTAINS ON) PLACED BENEATH THE HANDRAIL, AND THE ENTIRE PERIMETER OF THE TREEHOUSE IS ALSO STRENGTHENED.

 

 

THE DOORS AND WINDOWS ARE DECORATED WITH SOME OLD FRAMES AND THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE PAINTED WITH A COAT OF WATER-SOLUBLE ACRYLIC PAINT, SANDPAPERED AND THEN FINISHED WITH WAX TO HIGHLIGHT THE WOOD GRAIN. THE ROOF IS COVERED WITH CLASSIC SLATE ROOF TILES.

 

 

THE POLE IS SET INTO THE GROUND USING A CRANE AND THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE IS THOROUGHLY TESTED BEFORE BEING USED.
INSIDE THERE IS A TOY BOX THAT CAN BE TURNED INTO A BED.
