Sangamon Tree House

A tree house is a special kind of place. It should be a playful use of materials in collaboration with the natural surroundings. Trees are living, breathing, beings that need to move and grow. The structure needs to be fully supported, stable, and also interact with the trees supporting it, allowing them to thrive. We solved this problem using an engineered support system called a Garnier Limb. Check them out at The post footings are anchored to the ledge. The front support post is a Black Locust that we cut down on the property. All of the wood is locally harvested, with the exception of the pressure treated frame.
