A tree house as a secret retreat is the dream of many children. But what if there are no suitable trees in your garden? Our stilt house is the solution.
This awesome tree house stands on stilts and is therefore not dependent on the branches of a tree as a foundation. However, it can be attached to trees so that it lives up to its name. With or without a tree, this playhouse can be made in both versions. If you have several trees available, you can even open the house two or three trees put.
First, however, you have material procurement and – for two – about twenty hours of work before. After that, however, you will probably find the most original tree or stilt house in the area in your garden.
For the first variant, we used a colored multilayer panel coated with phenolic resin as the cladding material for the tree house. at The second We opted for boards made of larch wood, the no weather protection coating need.

If you prefer the tree house in a pure natural look, or for whom the red coated panel is simply too colorful, we recommend that untrimmed larch boards recourse.
These boards should be one 24 mm thick and 18 to 22 cm wide to have. The prices for the tree house can vary greatly, depending on whether you buy the boards directly from the woodworking shop or from a specialist wood dealer.
For example, you pay a good 22 euros for a 5 m long board of the dimension mentioned in the specialist wood trade. However, the board can be obtained directly from the sawmill for just under 12 euros. So you can save some euros here!
