With its bespoke flexible design philosophy High Life Treehouses create tree houses to suit every style and every need.

A service without equal

High Life Treehouses recognises that most important ingredient in creating your perfect tree house is you, the client.

The first step in the design process is to arrange a site visit by one of our qualified Treehouses surveyors, where ideas can be discussed from both a practical and aesthetic viewpoints, taking into consideration the surroundings and, most importantly the tree.

Our surveyor will advise on all aspects of safety and practicality and will be happy to offer alternative ideas when occasion arises.

During this visit a technical survey, including detailed site measurement plan and full photographic survey, will be carried out which will allow us to establish the best solution for your tree, taking into account the proposed use of the Treehouse and the strength of the tree and available space within and around it.

Design Consideration

We will also at this point establish a design brief incorporating your thoughts and ideas, together with a financial brief, and these, along with the technical survey form the basis of your tree house design. It is important to include all of your ideas, no matter how unusual or “quirky” they may seem, and our designers will do everything they can to interpret them into the final design.

Foremost in our thinking throughout the design process is the desire to create a structure in harmony with the tree and its surroundings, as well as fulfilling the needs and wishes of our client. Consideration is given to platform heights, building and roofing materials, method of access, number of windows and doors, safety in use – no detail is too small to be important to us. Our designers are skilled at interpreting your ideas to create the treehouse of your dreams.

A full detailed design specification and quotation is prepared alongside the final drawings, listing our full range of treehouse accessories. Flexibility is assured at this stage and any amendments or alterations required to the design will be incorporated.
