When it comes to building treehouses, it may all boil down to resourcefulness and of course, creativity. Though some people go a bit overboard in coming up with the best design for a treehouse, Lynne Knowlton puts his designing ability to good use with this Treehouse creation over in Ontatrio, Canada.
The treehouse is reportedly something that she designed to become a sanctuary after an unfortunate experience involving a barn and a tornado. She and her family reportedly bought a demolished barn which led to them building a two-storey treehouse that is supported by stilts.
Among the main materials used include reclaimed wood although they did source out additional materials from friends. This includes materials originating from an old dismantled playground.
Lynne Knowlton’s, reclaimed material treehouse is a sweet dream for both children and adults. For children, its a playhouse in the trees complete with a slide to make a quick exit. For adults, its a quiet retreat set alongside the treetops above the noise of daily life. Knowlton wanted to create this sanctuary at her home in the countryside outside of Durham, Ontario, Canada.
