Here at treehouses, everything comes from a single source. At the beginning, I breathe in the natural environment of the location and let it sink in. This is how concrete visions of the most exciting possibilities of how to construct the stairs, the platform, or the hut take shape.

It is only after the completion of the stairs and the platform that we construct the treehouse as such in our workshop; we then take the parts of the treehouse to the platform and finally build it there. We frequently use recycling materials, such as old factory windows or doors, or other found treasures like driftwood or vineyard poles.
