Bird’s Nest Tree House
Tree Houses – Just For Fun
Terms: Individual Contract
Sussex is home to this delightful cosy tree house overlooking the countryside. As its name suggests, just like a bird’s nest, it is nestled amongst the branches of a tree.
A treehouse placed simply into the scenery
The client envisaged a treehouse that would be a relaxing space for anyone in the family but would also serve as a rustic hideaway.
As with all treehouses designed and built by Blue Forest, the context and the client’s vision are key to the process.
On this project we discovered that the tree at the bottom of the client’s garden provided a wonderful opportunity to bring the desired concept to life.
With two strong branches, the tree gave the impression of hands waiting to receive an object. This was to become the resting place for our design.
The treehouse with the bird’s eye view
The tree house is accessible from a ladder with a landing directly under it on a small platform. Thanks to its lofty height, the building offers a glorious panoramic view of the surroundings.
To make the most of sunny days, the back of the tree house has a door that opens onto a small deck. This could be the perfect private location to unwind with a great book and a glass of wine, or perhaps simply take in the fresh air and witness the local wildlife.
The balcony is finished with branches in their raw state – naturally curved and bark intact, to create a strong yet earthy finish.
To ensure the treehouse blends into the environment, the colour and finish of the materials was chosen to complement nearby trees and foliage.
Cosy design, big on comfort
The inside of the treehouse is a cosy retreat with more than enough room. And no matter how much the weather changes, we guarantee you’ll be warm and dry.
