Experience. Community. Connection.
Nelson Treehouse is a Washington State-based design and build firm that brings people together through the creation of exquisite, custom treehouses. We take great pride in our team, process, and product, and believe that our passion for craft and community elevates the experience we offer our clients. It is our honor to bring the magic of the "treehouse life" to families and organizations around the world, and to have a lot of fun along the way.
From full-scale design and build services, to consultations for those building their own backyard treehouses, we specialize in bringing your treehouse dreams to life. Under the leadership of Pete Nelson (also known as the "Treehouse Master"), we have built over 350 treehouses around the world. Throughout each project, we seek to foster the forest through low-impact building practices and use of environmentally sustainable materials.
We are a licensed architectural firm and specialize in designing safe, enduring, and captivating treehouses. Our designers work closely with you to manifest your vision and bring years of experience in innovative and beautiful small-space design to the process. Our designs are highly site-specific, integrated with the unique layout of your trees and the surrounding environment. We collaborate with engineers and building officials to ensure that your luxury treehouse meets the highest standards of safety.
Our designs services are typically paired with our build services, but can also be contracted independently. Click here to learn more about the steps and costs of our full design and build process, and visit our FAQ for detailed information. For inspiration, browse our gallery of recent work.
We oversee your build from prefabrication in our Washington State-based shop, to shipment of prefabricated components, to onsite completion. Our carpenters excel at their craft, building artful and durable treehouses. We pride ourselves on leading a joyful, safe, and seamless build experience, believing that the process of building your treehouse is as fundamental to its magic as being in the completed structure.
We build with only the highest-quality hardware and tried-and-tested techniques that foster the longevity of both trees and treehouse. As necessary, we hire subcontractors for additional services including insulation, roofing, plumbing, and electrical.
Building your own treehouse? We're here to help! We offer consultations, plans, heavy-duty hardware, and other supplies to support do-it-yourselfers with their own treehouse projects. Consultations may be performed via phone or onsite.
