    There are a few things that you’re over complicating

    When trying to make two points level, fill a piece of clear tubing with water, bend it into a u shape, the two water levels will be the same – then you can just align one with the height you want and use the other side to get the same height – so much simpler than double spirit levels or taught string lines

    @Bob, wouldn't a water level be easier to find the spot on the tree? Fill a clear hose with water, line up one side with the already drilled support, then hold the other side 180 deg around the tree. Water line will be exactly level with the other side.

    1. That's not a treehouse, the tree is just acting as one of it's legs
    2. There is a reason why those things are designed to be used with nails, and not screws, your personal preference isn't going to give the screws more shear strenght
    3. If that tree would have been struck by lightning it would look like a burned out match
    4. Yeah, let's just cut these dead green branches, no one will notice
    5. Putting 10 inch holes in the tree is the healthiest option for it…..right

    Dude, i used to like your videos but it's all going downhill, this one is by far the worst one

    Is it ok to fix a post in the ground with concrete? My architecture teacher told me once that if you secure a post in the ground with concrete it will rot, so you should just fill the hole with concrete and use bolts to fix it

    With a treehouse you don’t normally cut things off. You build around it.

    Green treated posts should not be going directly into concrete, moisture will build up inside the post and rot away from the inside. Should have used tubes filled with concrete and a metal bracket for the posts at ground level. Never have wood touch concrete near the ground as it will wick moisture.

    75 percent of youtube filled with homeowners thinking they know how to build, you can tell hes never worked construction

    You built a deck with a slide. Thumbs down for the click bait.

    Maybe get some personal protection equipment before you go and use a chainsaw. And those falling branches could've knocked you and/or your ladder very easily. Be safe up there man.

    Should of bolted 2×10 through the 4×4 minimizing the use metal brackets eliminating that weak point.

    When trying to mark level on two surfaces far apart like when you wanted to find the level line on the post to match the blue line on the tree, probably the easiest way with out a string level would be with a water level. Using clear hose, hold both ends of the hose upright on the surface of the things you want to level out and fill the hose with water to the line. The water will match the same level on the other side of the hose on the post – mark and cut.

    Did you lift the post off the ground at all before pouring? if you pour into a post that's just lying on dirt, the concrete will just form a loose collar and the post will eventually start to sink

    isn't it really bad to submerge the wood in concrete, even pressure treated wood its bad

    Is it just me or should a tree house be solely supported by the tree? Surely this would be better called a stilt house next to a tree? Are there any videos out there showing how to make a tree house just using support from the tree? If there are please send me links because I cannot find anything. Good video otherwise, thanks.

    How did you connect your joists/beams to the TAB? I don't see any brackets or connection?

    In case anyone didn’t know this video was sponsored by Lowe’s.

    What kind of oil was it you used as your first finish that was followed up with the beeswax? Do you ever have issues with beeswax finishes getting cloudy spots later? I have had a few do that and wondered why that was. Thanks!

    You are killing that tree

    All the people in the comments complaining about him cutting live branches… He didn't kill the tree, it doesn't hurt a tree to lose a few branches.

    Hmmm I will only cut the dead parts then cuts off everything with live pine needles, then bores into the tree and doesnt apply anything to the live wood to stop it getting diseased
