Treehouses lift the spirits. The centerpiece of the book is a photo essay showing Pete Nelson building a spectacular octagonal treehouse thirty feet up an old-growth fir on Saltspring Island in British Columbia. The fact that people live in trees all around the world and enjoy staying temporarily in trees all around the world even if they do not want to live there all the time should remind us that it is not all that unusual to enjoy spending time in the trees above it all, as it were.

As with other books in this series, I found the photos uninspired and the print quality poor. I was hoping for a beautiful picture book of Nelson's wonderful creations, but this doesn't fit the bill. Wish I had bought just one of these first, rather than three at once! Not really a coffee table book.

I love Pete Nelson and regard him as one of the top treehouse builders in the world. I'd love to have one of his creations but for right now, I have to settle for just a book. Maybe someday....

I loved watching the TV series, but I wanted to purchase a book. I am writing my second novel, and I am using the book as a resource for the main 'character' in this new title.

I bought this book for my husband's birthday. He's been going to build the kids a tree house for a couple of years and I decided he needed a little motivation. We are all fascinated by the houses in the book. They are wonderful. I ordered 2 other books by the same author. they all contain different information but all are equally fascinating.

The book was just like it was described and arrived on time. I have enjoyed reading and getting ideas for my own project in the spring. It had detail description on some of the tools needed, but just not how they should be use. I figure if your building a Treehouse you should have some idea how to use the tools.

This book is a nice read. The seller did a good job getting it to me in time for a gift to a friend. I’d recommend them to anyone.
