​Background

When the client’s son mentioned that he had definitely grown out of the wendy house and his parents decided to rekindle their dream of owning a tree house, we were called in to discuss the possibilities. A bespoke tree house was a natural addition to the gypsy caravan, carefully designed outdoor entertaining areas and lovingly tended garden.

Brief

We were asked to create a high quality, skilfully finished and attractive tree house to work as an outdoor living space for all the family: a bolt hole for the young teenage children – to see them into their older teenage years and beyond – and a peaceful tree house hideaway for the adults. The materials needed to be of the highest quality and the structure large enough to have a sitting area. The positioning and design of tree house were essential as whilst it was to be a feature, it was important that it did not overwhelm the garden as a whole.

A tree house should be something magical that blends into the garden, and Squirrel Design are simply brilliant at doing this!... they came up with designs that totally fit in with our garden... something that I would be very happy to live in! The quality of the work is outstanding… creativity brilliant and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Mrs F, Bucks


Design & build

This magnificent treehouse is constructed with a high percentage of quality oak and other durable woods, complimented by natural materials such as sweet chestnut palings and a cedar shingled roof. It incorporates a fantastic viewing platform to the front of the tree house with a wooden bench wrapping around the tree trunk. An internal mezzanine level offers a great hideaway space with a rope ladder dropping down and through the floor to the ground. There is enough space on the lower level for a small sofa, and along with the mezzanine, enough overall space for several bodies to comfortably camp out. A basket on a rope pulley is always a popular feature for those essential supplies – liquid or otherwise.
