From his fateful year-long sabbatical in Spain, where he decided to make treehouses his sole enterprise, to the founding of Treehouse Point near Seattle, Nelson documents the beginnings of this new journey alongside a bountifully illustrated record of his travels, discoveries and epiphanies.

Pete Nelson, the world’s best-known treehouse designer and builder, wants to put readers in trees—his motto is, “get ’er done, so you can BE in a TREE.” His new book is a comprehensive source of inspiration and practical information about treehouse design and construction. To that end, he shares the basics of treehouse construction with his own recent projects as case studies. Using photographs taken especially for this project along with diagrams, he covers the selection and care of trees, and explains the fundamentals of building treehouse platforms. To ignite the imagination, Nelson presents 27 treehouses in the United States, Europe, and Africa. The book will be indispensible to anyone who aspires to have a treehouse, from the armchair dreamer, to the amateur builder, to the professional contractor.

As children's hideaways, ornamental garden features, spiritual retreats, and even as offices, studios, and full-time homes, treehouses provide places of isolation, independence, and imagination where one can literally rise above the demands of daily life. Here, architect Adam Mornement and historian Paula Henderson explore extraordinary aeries past and present, from the treehouse-dwelling tradition of South Sea hunter-gatherers to the Green Magic eco-treehouse resort in Kerala, India; from Normandy’s 400-year-old chapel-in-the-oak to the tree nests and tree tunnels that movie star John Malkovich created for his children; from treehouses in literature to the ecologically sustainable dwellings built from modern technology that will be the treehouses of tomorrow's world. Engaging, thoroughly researched, and packed with hundreds of fabulous photographs and illustrations, Treehouses is destined to become the classic reference work on this magical subject.
