The first step would be to construct the deck or base by connecting the perimeter of the trees to use as a foundation. This can be done with 2x8s using lag bolts to fasten the timbers together at every joint. You can use Bosch Daredevil spade bits to pre-drill holes for lag bolts. Next, attach the girders and floor joists and finish by attaching pressure-treated plywood on top. Frame the walls to the desired height and position them on the deck base. Once positioned, attach them together using pressure-treated nails.
Frame out the gable end and attach a ridge beam that spans the length of the roof to the gable end. Attach rafters to the ridge beam starting in the middle, then cover the roof with pressure-treated material. Frame the windows, add a truss and railing around the perimeter and finally build a ladder for the entrance. Add details and finishing touches to personalize your new space and give it additional character.
