A treehouse is a structure built up in the branches or trunk of a tree. It’s like a small house or platform that is elevated from the ground. People construct treehouses for various reasons. Some build them as play spaces for children, while others create elaborate, comfortable dwellings. They can be simple platforms or intricate homes with multiple rooms, windows, and staircases. Usually, they’re made of wood to blend in with their natural surroundings. To access a treehouse, people might use ladders, stairs, or even bridges.
Treehouses are typically found in areas with large trees, but their designs and purposes can vary widely. They capture the imagination and offer a unique space closer to nature.
