Willow Treehouse

  • Design and Proposal: 2 weeks
  • Preparation and Build: 2 weeks
  • Cost £18,000


Recently relocated family on the outskirts of London with 3 active young girls, with energy to burn.


With a wonderful Willow Tree in the garden, and three young girls. The owners wanted a Treehouse that was quirky, but able to blend into the Trees Canopy so not to be too conspicuous. Most importantly a zip wire launch from Treehouse platform so the girls could run back and forth expending energy.

Design & build

We created a treehouse that wrapped around the willow tree, with a branch through the roof and the main truck visible inside – the wonderful bark patterns creating a beautiful organic ornament for the interior. Leaning out walls created more space and room for a Mezzanine level to read books and sleep overs. Access by a more traditional ladder, which also acted as the launch site for the 30m Zip wire. As the build reached completion the girls increasing became more excited after school to climb, explore, and most definitely launching down the zip wire at the first opportunity

‘’I would happily recommend Squirrel Design they put so much thought and care into the design to incorporate the tree and its natural surroundings. The detail was outstanding and we have a beautiful house in our garden which is our daughters delight.’’ - Nikki Spooner
