Who: Matt P.
Where: Kingston, TN
The yard now comes to life. The kids have a place to play and adults seem to enjoy it even more! When people drive down the road, they always slow down and look in amazement into the trees. The zip line is a hoot as well. The tree house just seems to bring back the kid in us all! We saved money during the build, with good old-fashioned elbow grease. Besides the occasional help from the kids and my wife, my dad and I built the entire tree house ourselves. The biggest savings came from my designing and fabricating what could have been costly metal brackets needed to support the structure.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself.
Cost: $1,000 to $5,000
