It covers tree selection, design features, structural architecture, and even the wood and hardware commonly used. Step-by-step instruction is provided for building platforms, walls (including windows and doors), roofs, and fun accessories such as ladders and trap doors. Includes six plans with exploded diagrams for inspiration.
Color photographs and diagrams accompany the text.
