A multi function treehouse and storage shed combination for smaller spaces.
Our clients wanted to replace their existing shed and use the space for a treehouse with an elevated playhouse and balcony above, and a storage shed below. We designed and built the structure from pressure treated timber, to incorporate an existing tree, create privacy and maximise space in an urban garden.
The lower level is the storage shed, the window is in the playhouse above. The door of the playhouse is just visible through the balcony handrail.
Looking away from the playhouse door to the tip of the steps. The ash tree and timbers take on a lovely glow as the sun goes down.
The tree trunk comes up through the deck, and the ballustrades are designed to allow the branches to pass through.
The balcony includes a pulley for bringing things up from below, and the rope ladder and swing are attached by carabinas used for rock climbing. The panelled wall of the deck creates privacy.
The handrail for the steps was designed with different levels to be suitable even for the youngest child.
This final image was sent to us by our clients after they added grass to the garden, and the children have made the treehouse their own.
