    Looks great! Love the view too!

    I really want to say thank you for your videos. I find the only time I get
    up and go is when I watch you. I just would like to thank you for all your
    content. For someone who is going thru a lot of personal turbulence right
    now the place I can always go to for comfort and guidance is you and I
    really appreciate that and just to tell you to stay the course. Make videos
    that make you happy.

    To Wranglerstar and Mrs. With Jack, The Fresh P and to your grandfather. My
    grandfather was the greatest man I never met. The way you describe him I
    can only hope mine was half as good. I truly do honor them. From a lost
    soul desperately looking for the way I tend to see that light in you I know
    I am only one of thousands you get but could really need your help or mrs
    or fresh p. I know it’s asking the impossible and I am prepared for such.
    Good health and good fur tune to your family
    James

    Safety Suggestions: You should have a beam going out from the structure at
    a window with a pulley on it, so that items can be brought up to the tree
    house and brought down from the tree house without having the kids or
    adults trying to carry items while they also are trying to climb. Trying
    to climb and carry stuff is a recipe for disaster. The hatchway won’t work
    for freight because it can’t really clear the tree and the pulley lines
    would foul the doorway. Provide a cleat at the bottom so your kid can haul
    a box up to a window, tie the rope and then use the ladders to access the
    treehouse and safely take the items out of the box from the window. It
    would be best to have the pulley on the opposite side of the treehouse than
    the human access point, because if freight is at the window and something
    falls, it won’t hit anyone using the people access area. If that spot is
    at the same location as the desk, put the desk top on hinges so it can be
    flipped aside to access the freight window.
    Fix the human access hatch so that it has to be held open. That way
    if your son forgets its open, he won’t accidentally walk backwards and fall
    down an open hatchway. The hatch can be held open without using hands to
    access it by pushing with the head during ascent. It can be held open
    without using hands with the back during descent.

    Looks really nice. Cody, I have been watching you build this tree house and
    I have to admit that I am jealous of the weather you guys are having. It
    looks like you’re averaging a good 30F warmer than we are over here in
    Ohio. I’m really looking forward to warmer days.

    Wow, all these so called adults getting excited over a treehouse. Yep. Me
    too, what a great project.
    I’m wondering what type of roof you’re thinking about. Personally I would
    have the tallest stud in the trapdoor corner and angle the roof down from
    there, or basically NOT do a traditional pitched roof, do something a
    little more. It do the exact opposite, and have the trap door corner stud
    the shortest stud in the whole structure.
    I’m with everyone else on the zipline idea,
    And the fire pole.
    

  6. Cash Johnston24 February, 2015 at 2:56 am

    Id move the trapdoor to the extra square footage area you added on and
    build a staircase to it from the platform you proposed below. I’d use the
    staircase to double as supports from underneath and remove the suspension
    support. The suspension support looks like it will wear in to the bark of
    the tree over time.

    Cody, you dont have to justify every decision to us viewers. Your
    engineering skills are tried and tested and well thought out and the risks
    are minimal. Your son is your most precious possesion and his safety is
    most important. I dont doubt you have that foremost in mind as you think
    this thru. It is stout enough to lay brick walls on that foundation.

    WRANGLERSTAR! i have been trying to get ahold of you for weeks! my company
    has been scrapping old hardware and all sorts of stuff that i know you
    could use! we just scrapped 18” and 12” 5/8 316ss lag bolts! 

  10. K Singleton24 February, 2015 at 1:38 am

    How much weight does it take to shear off a 16 penny nail when it’s
    sticking out one half inch. I’ll have to research this myself. I suppose
    it would bend over first but if that isn’t possible would it just shear
    off?

  11. hagenoft24 February, 2015 at 1:27 am

    Is there any heavy dear trails going underneath the “tree house”?

  12. capt_conrad24 February, 2015 at 12:35 am

    Be sure to make your cable as perfectly straight up and orthogonal as you
    can on that corner. This will insure that you dont introduce a torque to
    that corner of the platform as that would take away from the strength of
    lags and might introduce some ovaling to your 3/8ths lag’s holes. If this
    cannot be accomplished, try to at least make it follow the direction of the
    beam (stringer tail w/ the forged eyebolt) away from the platform. This
    will at least be pulling in the same direction of the lags and allow for an
    overall better distribution of force.

    Love this series cody. By the looks of it, jack’s kids will be able to
    enjoy this one.

    “Off grid treehouse” That needs to be a shirt

  14. Charles Baggett23 February, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    I think that “lubber hole” is a waste of space. A ladder or rope ladder,
    off he side, would save floor space. A secret escape hatch would be fine
    with a carpet cover. A recliner chair or daybed should be hauled up there
    for overnights. Short walls and windows could make it a 4 season hangout.
    You have to roof that building also. Swiss Family Robinson style add-ons
    with rope bridges would be fantastic.

    Looking Good!
    Green wood shrinks, nails get loose.
    Have you given any consideration to using Galvanized Ring Shank nails?
    Just a thought.

    Cody,I have been a long time watcher of all your videos. What you are doing
    is truly amazing on a daily basis. You are living and building a life most
    of us only dream about. I wonder how many safety sally’s and sheep will
    comment on whether you have the correct building permits and government
    oversight to engage in such an endeavor. Since discovering your channel
    about 13 months ago, I have purchased 80 acres in the Alaskan range and
    fully intend on moving me and mine there. I have visited the property twice
    and have started the initial phases of homestead building. Cutting trail
    from the lake where the bush plane drops me off, clearing two acres for log
    structure , garden , solar panels , out-buildings. Thirteen months ago I
    was a middle management hamster getting nowhere in life, just paying bills
    and slogging forward. I am now ready to start living life. It took me 39
    years to realize that my time belongs to me, nobody else. Nobody else
    should benefit from my labors but me and mine. Thank you for the
    inspiration and the kick in the butt I needed to wake up from the
    government induced fog that was placed on me. My property is located
    off-grid, NO PROPERTY TAXES , NO BUILDING PERMITS , NO PUBLIC SERVICES.
    Just the way most Alaskans like it. God bless you, and keep up the good
    work. That tree house would be awesome for any kid to play in.

  17. RobbieGTV23 February, 2015 at 4:22 pm

    Hey Cody just an idea but what if on the main structure you went straight
    up on one end, did a shed roof and made a little half height mezzanine
    loft?

  18. 1timby23 February, 2015 at 3:36 pm

    Maybe you could make a hatch for the access opening. SO that once in the
    tree house you don’t loose the floor space. You could Google Derek “Deek”
    Diedricksen to get some ideas as he’s big in the Tiny Home arena. I have a
    ton of ideas but have no idea as to what you’re going to do. Will it be an
    enclosed tree house or just a platform with rails. A full tree house with a
    view over looking the mountain would be great. Derek has some interesting
    shed type examples using a strong inexpensive roofing material. Also some
    ideas using that see through stuff.

    Just my 2 cents…LOL

  19. Marcos N23 February, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    Plywood gets problematic when wet? I thought was better than standard wood
    in that regard.

  20. John Holmes23 February, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    I’ve built a lot of tree stands in my day, and found that it’s best to
    build off only one leg of the tree or just a single legged tree. What seems
    to happen when going from leg to leg with your foundation is that the wind
    will get each individual leg to move differently and eventually the bolts
    or nails will snap, usually right at the surface between the bark and
    board. Also, I never screwed the bolts all the way in to take into account
    for tree growth. If you screw them in tight as the tree grows it will pull
    the bolt through your wood.

  21. Ross Hastings23 February, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    Just lap your 2x6s on your tables saw for your flooring. Won’t take you
    long and the floor will be air tight.

  22. Jeremy Connor23 February, 2015 at 2:44 pm

    Looks great Cody, really impressive! I think I prefer the idea of the
    second knee joint over the eye loop with the suspension, because the main
    trunk is less likely to break and fall, if the branch with the fitted
    suspension comes down in strong wind it might do some serious damage to
    that lovely treehouse which would be a terrible shame.

    you live in japan?

  24. mrgearheadfromhell23 February, 2015 at 2:28 pm

    A zip line would be cool. This has to be by far the strongest tree house I
    have ever seen built.
