Tree house!!

For those of you who don’t know how amazing my husband is, here is a glimpse.

He has almost single-handedly remodeled our house, room by room, over the last 7 years.

We still have a few more projects in the house, but he was persuaded to work outside this time on a tree house for our kids.

I always wanted a treehouse as I was growing up and never got the chance to have one, so when he told our kids last year that he would build one for them, I made him deliver on that promise!

It took him a bit longer than expected because he is a perfectionist and a beautiful designer, so it evolved as he built it.

But, the end result was definitely worth it. The kids are thrilled and I am so proud of him.

I documented the process with my Iphone, but took some final photos with my good camera, both at night and daytime.


Buying more wood for the project.


And the final shots!

    Only the Pankratz kids have a crazy cool modern tree house!!!!
    I want to LIVE there!!!!!
    I’m dying to see it in person!!!!!
    Bjon….you are SO insanely TALENTED!!!!!

  2. You need to do this for a living….among many things! This needs to be published in a magazine!!!
    Man I wish I knew someone to connect you to. I think you should just blindly submit these pictures and see what happens. I can’t handle just how cool you and the kids are. They must be so proud of their Dad!

  6. Genius!! Your kids will make so many great memories in “their house” that Dad built! Great place for your kids to display seasonal decorations too…i.e. jack ‘o lanterns in the Christmas tree & lights etc…

  12. This treehouse is incredible. Your husband is very talented. So many beautiful details and the big windows give your kids a view of the neighbourhood from every direction:)

  13. Amazing! I am sitting here scrolling through the pictures with my mouth hanging open! What a beautiful job your husband did! The pictures are great too! I especially love the night pictures.

  15. This is the most amazing treehouse I’ve ever seen!!! And your husband is super talented and artistic with his construction. I hope me and my husband can use your treehouse for inspiration to create something for our kids. Love the blog.

  16. Wow what an amazing space for your children. A very talented husband indeed thank you for sharing it is truly inspirational.

  17. What an amazing treehouse! Would you mind if I borrow one of the pictures to feature on my blog, with a link back to you of course?

  18. OMG, that is so amazing and cool! What a terrific dad! I’d love to have one just to hang out in or put my guests in when they’re visiting!

  20. I don’t know who would like this more…my kids, or me? What an amazing outdoor space. Much more than a tree house, that’s for sure. Beautiful!

  21. Way too late for my daughter and grandkids, but, OH!!!, how my great-grands would absolutely ADORE this tree house. This daddy really did a FANTASTIC job! He needs to pat himself on the back every day for doing this for his kids.

  22. THat is amazing! But being an english major, I couldn’t help noticing a typo on your site, on the first line of the introduction, when you are saying how amazing you’re husband is!! IS! Blessings! Keep up the good work God has begun in you!

  23. Diana, I couldn’t help but notice that you used the word you’re instead of your. Thought you should know since you are an english major!! On another note, this treehouse is amazing!!!

  24. What an amazing experience, sense of accomplishment and a huge overload of pride this man gave his children and his children gave him, not to mention the great lesson they learned about team work, math, measurements……I’M SO IMPRESSED!!!!

  25. This is AMAZING!! Believe me, your children will cherish this and the memories of it into their adult life. I had a treehouse built by my Daddy and I want so badly for my daughter to have one. Unfortunately I can’t get my husband (also her Daddy) to do it and we have the most perfect tree. Great job, Dad.

  26. This is AMAZING! Tell your husband he made his children’s dream come true. My Dad is a great craftsman as well. As a child, he suggested he might make us kids a tree house. He even showed us magazines with grand plans for the coolest clubhouses. Life gets busy and it never happened. I don’t hold it against him, but I would have loved one. Your kids will never forget this.

  28. Excellent vision and follow through. I remember my tree house was a board nailed across two limbs. The entire family should feel joy and pride. Well done.

  29. so, not only is the dad a cutie, he just built an amazingly gorgeous masterpiece in his own backyard…! 😉 thanks for sharing the step by step process…i’ll probably never use it but love seeing it!

  30. What an inspiring creation! I love that it is simple, fun and modern. Today was day five of a treehouse build and I am definitely taking notes!
    Your children must practically live in it!
    And congrats on being so good to the tree – not even a lag screw into it?!

  32. Great job!! Good inspiration for us. We’re taking on a playhouse with similar dimensions this “December.” (we’re starting with the 1st floor only) Stuck on doing THIS for my kiddos’ Christmas gift! A very brrrr project indeed.

  34. My most sincere compliments for a truely brilliant tree house. I have to sadly admit that I never quite got my daughters finished for her it sort of ended up being a wood store more than anything else. Oh well knowbodies perfect I guess.
    But this is incredible & if I hadn’t actually seen the photo story & only seen the end photos without your Husband & the children I would have sworn that this had to be one of those unpayable architect designed objects. Truly fantastic & really envy you’re children having such a truely creative & dedicated Dad. Wonderful job 😉

  36. I am so impressed. Absolutely amazing job. Your husband is an extremely talented man. A+ father too. So lucky. Well done 🙂

  37. Beautiful work! Love this tree house! You lave and labor is obvious in the beauty of the quality of your work! Blessings to you and your family

  38. This is the most incredible playhouse I’ve ever seen. I’m sure you get this question a lot, but I’m wondering if you have basic plans that you could sell. I’m just looking for the basic blueprint. I’m certain we could never do the exterior like your talented husband, but the the basic design seems perfect. Is there any way to get a copy? My husband will do nothing without a plan. Many thanks for sharing this work of art. Britta
