Craftsman tools and a tree planner are all you need to get started.
Read moreThe planner comes in handy when you need the exact dimensions of the house you want to build.
For instance, if you need a three-bedroom house, you need three plans, one for the first floor and one for each floor below.
The tree planer can help you determine how many feet you’ll need.
In addition to a tree, you’ll want to have a lot of wood.
For this project, you’re going to need two dozen pine needles.
You’ll want about three feet of that length to cover the tree’s base.
You might have to cut a piece off to make room.
You also want to trim off the bottom two feet.
Here’s what you need:The first step is to find a suitable location to build the tree.
For the new house, it’s best to find it somewhere in a wooded area, where there’s plenty of sunlight.
The best place to do this is on a tree stump or in a tree hollow, since the trees themselves have no root systems and require lots of light.
In addition, if it’s going to be a one-story house, look for a tree that’s tall enough to cover all of the walls and floors.
This way, you can build the whole structure in a single night.
For the basement, the best place is in a basement.
This is a room that can easily hold up to two people and is well-suited to building a house.
For one person, you want the top floor, which you’ll build out of two smaller floors.
For two people, you might want to divide the floor into two separate halves, like in the image below.
(You’ll want this layout for the house’s first and second floors.)
The second step is figuring out how much space you’ll use.
In this case, you don’t want to leave much space for your kids to climb over.
So, start with about six feet of space.
Next, figure out how many of the following options are available to you:The wood itself is pretty easy to work with.
A good rule of thumb is that the longer the tree is, the better.
If you’re using pine, the thicker the branch, the less flexibility you’ll have.
To keep your project simple, it doesn’t make sense to use a tree trunk that’s more than 10 feet long.
So you want a tree with at least five feet of trunk length.
The rest of the material can be purchased in any woodworking store, and the tree you choose will also have to be strong enough to hold up.
The planter is where the fun really begins.
This tree will allow you to lay out all the material you need for the tree, and then you’ll be able to place the wood on top of the tree and cut it down for the top.
Once you’re done, you should have something that looks like this.
(I used the pictures in this article because the picture on the left is an example of the planter.)
Here’s the finished product.
The planter and the trunk are ready to use.
The second floor is for the main entryway.
