looks good and has a good gurantee. hot

Forwarded to my mate who never pays his rent. cheers.

This looks nice an all but these kind of things never seem as good as the nice old traditional boards of wood up a tree. I loved my treehouse when I was a kid, although I'm better the health and safety bods around now wouldn't approve!

I have a feeling this is a lot smaller than it looks!

Hmmm, maybe the link had some kindof session in it? If I've screwed it up can a mod fix it. Worst case just search for it on homebase

As for it looking small, the dimensions are clearly stated, I cant see the problem?!?

Yeah I almost bought it from there but this short 15% weekend (although they happen a LOT!) makes it a good bit cheaper still. Plus any problems and I can drive up the road and moan at someone!

I bought this for £200 - my girls love it.

Takes some putting together though - about 5 hours with an electric screwdriver (I would dread to think how long with a normal screwdriver).

Plus ~2 hours for painting.

Looks v nice, and absolutely rock solid. Major plus, is that my girls play in it a lot ... well worth the cash!

Looks very nice, thanks.

What did you do for a base? Theres loads of pictures around, some have a full concrete base, some have breeze blocks under the legs, some have Met Posts, others just sat straight on grass.

Id rather not put it on a solid base as earth is a much softer landing for when he inevitably falls off the ladder!

Tips appreciated

PS: Why didnt you use a drill rather than an electric screwwdriver?!

Is it wrong these are one of the main reasons I want to have children- to custom build a badass treehouse for them!!

You could probably buy all the timber and materials for £40.

£40? When was the last time you visited a timber yard?

Agree that it took some time putting it together. You definitely need a solid base but for us that has just consisted of ordinary paving stones on concrete footings beneath each leg. So it is still soft underneath the house and all around. Also, don't bother putting the plastic in the windows, just the frames, it is way too hot without ventilation.

Our kids are in it everyday. It is considerably bigger than the TP one. We have a toy sink, cooker, washing machine and two camping chairs in ours and there is still room to play on the floor.

I used wood preserver on the base of the legs and then placed some of the spare felt from the roof on the bottom of them, which is then placed on the grass. Very simple - and it saves all the hassle of concrete base, etc

Another Tip: put bath sealant around the joints all around the floor before painting - ensures its watertight, and you will get no water ingress to warp the floor.

I inserted the plastic windows, and the girls now have proper curtains hung too - with the doors open, there is enough air to keep it cool - especially in the great british summer
