About the Class
Ever wanted your very own castle in the sky? Make your dream a reality by learning from master tree-house builder Brett.
The class will take you through identifying suitable tree’s, being aware of the unique challenges of attaching to living tree’s, safety principles and basic tree-house models. As the class will take place in Brett’s own backyard you’ll be able to check out the 3 varieties of tree-house he’s made himself there.
Under Brett’s expert eye you’ll get to work as a team on a basic hexagonal platform – giving you practical experience with the tools required. He’ll then assist you in coming up with a sketch of a tree-house of your own, based on the tree you have in mind.
This class is ideal for families wanting to plan their own treehouse project. No previous building experience is necessary as basic tool introduction will take place.
PLEASE NOTE: Any treehouse construction of your own should comply with standard building codes and Brett and Wild Rumpus are not liable for any construction that is forthcoming. Before participating in this class you will be required to sign a waiver form in regards to any future building of your own.
Brett Davis is a former high school woodwork teacher and has had a passion for treehouses since his first attempt that involved ruining his father’s tools at age 8. He believes that treehouses are a creative and refreshing outdoor space that sparks the child within all of us and connects us to the environment.
Brett is available for consultancy on a friendship basis.
