It seems that almost everyone likes treehouses. Smiles of recognition turn into grins of enthusiasm as more people discover them and dream about making their own private retreats or family play spaces.

Treehouses are not just for children. This is a beautiful book with gorgeous photos.
Jenna Parmer
Fun. Makes you dream about building your own treehouse retreat.
Susan
A very enjoyable book showing a variety of treehouses that people really live in as well as some designs that catastrophically failed. I skipped the twenty-page section on children's playhouses (built on the ground)..didn't really fit with the rest of the book.
Cindy
Not sure one can (should) actually rate a book like this. I'm a bit odd and would love to have a vacation tree house. Therefore, I really enjoyed this book and have owned it for years. If you're not into tree houses, I suppose this book is not for you.

Interesting little book chock full of photographs of treehouses. And now I want one. Lots of eye-candy. Only drawback is all the treehouses in the book were built by one company; I would've liked to see more variety in the type, builders, and era.

Looking through this coffee table book will fill your head with grand fantasies of dropping everything to live in a hand-crafted house at the top of a redwood tree.

Haven't we all wanted to live in a treehouse at some time in our lives? Some of these are actual houses....others are playhouses. Gorgeous eye-candy.
Alissa
This is a great book for anyone who likes treehouses and treehouse offices. There are some really cool stories in here about peeps who have built treehouses.

A collection of pictures of existing tree houses as well as some instructions on how to build your own and what to look out for.

"Treehouses represent a return to innocence. They can be refreshingly antisocial... a place of one's own."
Lori
Great pictures and tree house dreaming or planning ideas. Loving the treehouse cottage and office ideas!
Molly

Dee
You Tarzan. Me Jane. Great book to dream in.
