I’ve always wanted to build a treehouse from a young age. I have finally done it.
This is the Woodsman’s Treehouse. It’s approached through a rope bridge.
And a decompression chamber rather like a, a submarine.
For some it’s a childhood dream but for Guy Mallinson, building a luxury treehouse complete with a few playful features,
We’ve got a slide, to help us. Oh it’s too sticky today. Why is it so sticky?
is now a reality.
One of the advantages of being in a woodland like this is that it’s obviously teaming with wildlife
and it is an absolute joy to sit there on the deck and watch Squirrels go up and down and buzzards and deer walk underneath.
Now available to hire, the treehouse is perfect for those looking to let it all hang out in the secluded tree top get away.
Yeah they’re showering outside with no clothes on; obviously they’re in the hot tub with no clothes on
so I think it’s nice that they can feel comfortable being naked in the woods, in the outside,
that no one’s going to see them because you’re in the middle of nowhere.
At the far end of the deck, we’ve got a hammock and the tree shower which is a system from home which we wielded up.
So on what we call the spa deck, we have the hot tub, a chilling out area and a sauna for two.
I’ve done exactly what I tell people not to do, just leave it on...
And then there’s this living wall all around here to give you some privacy, in your own little world up in the tree.
It has taken us five months to actually build the treehouse, but we had team of 20 makers at the end,
including my four…I’ve actually got three children.
So this circular room, has the bedroom, the bathroom and the kitchen as well as the dining area.
In the bedroom is a step up and a roof light. There is a copper bath with the picture window of the tree.
And it’s allowed to move and the water to go up and down it, animals to go up and down it, it’s left completely alone.
There is a window in the floor which looks down at the stream below.
You’ve got these little port holes so you get fresh air blowing over the bath while you’re lying in there.
And then there’s a small kitchen, again just for two people
so there’s an oven and a fridge, enough for two people to cook pretty much anything they want.
The total budget for the treehouse was £150,000.
Right at this moment in time I’m not really thinking about more treehouses, I’ve just finished this one. But I have to say it’s gone really well.
Bookings are going incredibly well. I’ll be very surprised if I don’t build another one at some point.
