Peter Nelson’s Treehouses



Pete Nelson’s fascination with and aptitude for working with wood started at an early age. As a young boy Peter built a handful of treehouses with his father and his friends and designed his first major treehouse while attending high school. It was never built but the treehouse seed was planted.

Pete Nelson now spends his time creating tree houses, from the most traditional, reminiscent of fairy tales, to the most unusual and innovative, that seem to be right out of a sci-fi movie. This task often takes him all over the world, in the search of new solutions. He has recently published the profusely illustrated book New Treehouses of the World, with the results of his research.
