Be Amongst The Birds.

This exciting, remarkable, contemporary structure is described as a ‘tree house’ although it is not strictly so, as it is accessible from the ground and is entirely self supporting.  The client’s brief was to create a structure which felt like a tree house and allowed them to be at tree canopy height to enjoy the wildlife from the balcony; the effect that the client wished for was achieved by cantilevering the whole building, creating a free standing tree house.

Timber had to be selected that was very high grade to withstand the pressure placed upon it.  At the prow like end of the build the large sliding doors face out towards the tree canopy giving an uninterrupted view from a perspective usually only seen by the plentiful wildlife.

At Life Space Cabins we thrive on challenging new designs – have you got some ideas but not sure what’s possible? With us anything’s achievable, give us a call to discuss your plans and we’ll make them a reality.

No mean feat...

This was a very challenging site to work on. A steep slope strewn with large Dartmoor granite boulders not uncommon this part of the UK really tested the team of carpenters. Ordinarily the posts supporting the frame would be constructed in concrete, as some were in this build, but some utilised the granite boulders. This involved surveying the site and then cutting each of the eight posts to ensure it was the right length. It was not possible to bring a crane to the site due to the many trees, so timbers were hand trolleyed to the upper platform and then dropped down through the platform to the ground below.
