I have always wanted a treehouse. This is a wonderful book. Examined it at a friend's house over the holidays and had to have one of my own. These tree houses are so creative and colorful that I decided to invest in the book to get ideas for building my kids their own treehouse. Perhaps it will inspire my husband to start building again.
