6 easy steps to assemble the treehouse

  • Quando era miuda o Luís Valido tambem fazia cabanas nas arvores
    Bons tempos!

    Maria João Oliveira says:
  • Smart! But I don’t think I’d trust putting my kids in it 20ft up a tree….

    g-mo says:
  • good idea, but poor execution.

    seems to me the tree is being harmed.

    fundamental of a tree house – you have to have a tree.

    tree hugger says:
    Tree house for what?
    It is the size of a large bird house.
    I don’t understand why something like this is considered noteworthy.
    Even more perplexing, what kind of creative person would think that this is worthy of publication.

  • By seeing the first picture i was realy amused to see another one with somebody inside the tree house,… but there is no 🙁

    offical says:
  • M Oliveira wrote in Portuguese:
    When I was little, Luís Valido used to make tree houses as well. Those were the days!

    Pimpão says:
  • The tree doesn’t look very comfortable here.
