    Hi Cody,
    That’s a marvel of engineering! I had no doubt that the joint would come
    together nicely! I knew you marked where everything went before you took
    it down to cut it, so why shouldn’t it fit? Thanks for the videos!

    I had no doubt as to the outcome. Everything you do is precise. Thanks for
    sharing the series.
    God bless!

    As to making things easier with regards to putting up and taking down, etc.
    here’s what I would have done: I would have put it up once, made sure the
    beam was level and clamped the brace where I wanted it. Next, drop a plumb
    line near the tree off the beam, past the brace. Mark where the line is on
    the brace and measure the distance between them. The top of the beam and
    the plumb line mark are at 90 degrees. Take the whole thing down, and
    recreate it on the floor of the shop. Use a stringline and put the plumb
    line on the string. Measure the distance between brace and beam,
    double-check to make sure the angle is 90 degrees, and Bob’s your uncle!
    If you need to, make a jig on the floor to put things exactly in their
    places. At a minimum, make Sharpie marks on the floor to easily realign
    things for fitting.

    Looks great. I wrote a post earlier about a bracket needing another brace.
    I didn’t understand how you would use it. I thought one end would attach to
    the tree, the other to. the house. Anyhow it looks great!

    Why not go triangular (outside and inside for strength) and cantilever the
    floor? Would have eliminated all that mess with the bracket etc… And
    given roughly the same SF.

    Beautiful join there sir. It’s a pleasure watching you use those tools and
    seeing your vision come together. Thank you very much for sharing

    OH the memories. My cousin and I built one in his front yard and it went
    over the street. We just nailed slates on a old maple and had a few boards
    for “landings” if you would even call them that. hehehe. we spent a whole
    lot of time in that tree.

    Nice fit on that notch…great work.

    This video makes me remember the fort my dad built for me as a child, it
    was horrible. He used 5 pieces of plywood to build a box 4 feet wide, 4
    feet deep, and 8 foot tall. He put a bench inside for me to play with my
    toy cars on and didn’t put any windows in it. He then painted it the
    sickliest color of green you’ve ever seen. It was just a large green
    rectangle with a door, I called it the “The Outhouse” and the first time I
    stepped into it the floor collapsed because he had only nailed it in with a
    few nails. When the neighbor kids stormed my fort all they did was appear
    in my doorway and poke me with sticks, I was trapped on my bench and
    couldn’t get away. The most fun I ever had in it was burning it down a few
    years later. My dad was a lesson in how “not” to get it done, he was not
    Wranglerstar certified.

    So you gonna do anything about Homesteading anytime soon Cody? Perhaps I’m
    just being “Purest”.

    You will change the Title of your Channel or do Homesteading shit as the
    Title suggests.
    Your Tinkering Bullshit will end up Wasting time and Money for those
    following your Channel.
    Those who Actually Homestead are Not pleased with you.
    You are Proving to be a Sham.
    As I look back… How Dare you speak out about others being a Sellout.

    Straighten your shit out.
    You Are Not Worthy of the Title of Homesteading.

    Go ahead and Ban me…
    You Are Useless to REAL Homesteaders.

    It’s funny how carpentry mimics life. You said you spent a lot of time
    thinking about engineering and design on this project. It is evident that
    you have thought things through as evidenced by the quality and precision
    of the project thus far. The world would be completely different if people
    took the time to make life decisions in the same manner.

  12. Conor21 February, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    whats to stop the bracket at the bottom swinging around?

  13. Simon Thuthu21 February, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    I just have to say that i enjoy your videos very much!
    I have never been a youtube-guy, buy after watching your videos, i had to
    make a profile here just so i could subscribe!
    The first thing i do in the morning is to check if you have postet a new
    video, and its the last thing i do before i go to bed.
    I have a friend who i do some woodworking with, and if i tell him something
    smart about woodworking, he always ask: Cody ? , and the answer is always
    the same, Yes, he taught me that! You are a great inspiration and a great
    teacher.
    And if you ever visit Norway, i would love to meet you, and have you visit
    my workshop.

    Have a nice day!
    Gud velsigne. (God Bless)
    From Norway, Simon

    I would think this would be like the old timers & their barn raising. You
    make it look easy. LOL

    Did you hang from the brace to see if it was sturdy,,,LOL

    Great job.

  15. Jason Yuhase21 February, 2015 at 5:12 pm

    Hi Cody,

    Great job! Can yu please explain why you let in the knee brace 1/2″ on one
    side and 1″ on the other. I am not sure I understand. It seems as though it
    would make the support beam unlevel. I don’t have a ton of experience in
    the trades, and it may be a very simple answer, I am just trying to
    understand.

    Thanks,

    Jason

  16. dale myers21 February, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    just a though,t why did you opt to use a knee brace, over putting a support
    post into the ground? it would have simplified things a bit. as you could
    still use slip joints on the post as well. and if tree growth was the
    issue. by adding a screw jack, would have eliminated that factor. but then
    again. you could have gone with two cable stays, with turn buckles in
    tension from above, to support the cantilever end in place of the knee
    brace. those where two options i could think of. when you talked about
    differing approaches.

    It’s not my treehouse but I keep thinking of features to add to it. Maybe
    you’ve already thought of these, a fireman pole to get out quick, a bucket
    and pulley system to bring stuff up from the ground, a gun rack for those
    Nerf/water guns, and if you’re close enough to a water source, a little
    spigot in the treehouse. 

  18. iksnyzrog21 February, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    How level was the cross member after final attachment of the knee brace?
    And why did you go 1″ deep on one side and 1/2″ deep on the other when you
    ‘let in’ the knee brace? Thanks.

  19. Andrews NewsStand21 February, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    I can see a knotted rope hanging from an extended ridge beam as part of the
    project. You’re building the tree-house I always wanted as a kid. It’s much
    nicer than a couple pallets nailed to tree.

  20. xXxBlackwaterXxX21 February, 2015 at 4:02 pm

    Is there any video where he explains what that engineers hat he wears is?

  21. Mark B21 February, 2015 at 4:00 pm

    I don’t mean to be harsh, but Jack should be more involved in this
    project…

  22. David Hales21 February, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    Your treehouse series made it to Jay Bates website.

    Cody, you continually impress me with your breadth knowledge of things
    outside of what this channel is about. “Once again into the fray, dear
    friends” 5:21 — you’re building a tree fort for your son, and you just
    casually paraphrase a Shakespearean monologue of a King who’s trying to get
    his men to storm a fort. It’s so clever, and so casually done. I love it.

  24. Blackout Scout21 February, 2015 at 3:43 pm

    I can honestly say youve put more effort into this tree house than I put
    into my college education.
