Want to make a treehouse or playhouse? This is a great DIY project, especially if you have kids or grandkids. They will have hours and days of fun in this space, playing with their friends and having adventures that you simply don’t have with video games or other electronics that have become so popular now. Best of all, creating a custom made treehouse or playhouse lets you DIY it in your child’s favorite colors or with a theme they will like, such as pirates, princesses or anything else that will make them smile.
Most likely this is a DIY project you can do on your own, but would get done quicker if you have a buddy or spouse to help you a bit whether with the painting or the rest of the project. If you have older teens, they could help too with a bit of supervision.
We’ve found you 40 fun projects here for both treehouses and playhouses. Now some of these treehouses are actually for adults! As spending a resort like weekend around nature in a treehouse has become a popular trend. So if you are grown up and still want a treehouse, well, there are lots of them out there for you too!
If you create a treehouse or playhouse, it is critical that you work with high quality supplies that can stand up to play and children and adults standing on them, high up in a tree. Now is not the time to count your pennies or even to look to get free lumber, especially if you are uncertain of the condition it is in. While a more experienced wood DIY-er will likely know this, a beginner probably will not. We recommend you focus on “safety first” when building either a treehouse or a playhouse, as little ones will be playing in it. If you have questions about the instructions you’ve found or want to build something new you’ve never tried, ask a more experienced DIY-er for some advice.
