How do you build a cheap treehouse? Answered

I'm a kid who really, Really, REALLY wants a treehouse. But my parents don't know the first thing about building treehouses, and they're concerned about cost. Please help!


Check with near by stores such as home depot. Ask if you could have some used pallets from out back. Then you can take all the good boards off from them and use them for what every you need to. I'm sure they would let you :-) Plus you will reduce the impact on the environment ;-)

cost is at most that of screws all the rest you can find for free use strong wood (like the platforms used with forklift) for the base and supports (the important parts) and any chipboard etc for the walls / roof (the parts that you dont really depend on)
