Hi guys!, I think all you did on that tree is very very interesting, I would like to do the same some day. I'm a Scout Chief in Venezuela and the pioneering is one of my hobbies.

Cool! Please keep in touch with me over the years and let me know how the treehouse does over time. We're always looking to see what works and doesn't work for people building tree houses.

Thanks for posting a cool site, and the project pictures look great!
