We knew we wanted an elevated platform to launch our zip line. Eric was the creative force to design an aesthetic and functional tree house for the kids. The walk way he designed doubles as a slide, which gets a ton of use. Also, it was his idea to add the rock climbing wall, which the kids and their friends love. The tree house has been a safe and stable play structure that the kids run to almost everyday after school for the past two years. To give a child’s perspective, here are my 11 year old daughter’s thoughts: ‘It’s a great place to read, do homework, or watch sunsets. When I am up there with the trees it is like I am part of nature, I can hear the birds chirping and see the ocean. I would recommend the treehouse guy to everyone.’
