An ArtisTree treehouse connects guests with nature, fusing the enticing natural beauty of your resort with luxury accommodations.
A commercial treehouse is part of your resort or hotel branding. It can be the iconic, unique centerpiece accommodation that sets your property apart. An ArtisTree treehouse will allow your guests to experience an incredibly relaxing sense of place complete with modern creature comforts.
The Artistree Experience
Each of our treehouse designs are unique based on your resort’s needs, locations, and amenities. Please contact us for a free, remote consultation by phone or video chat, or visit the design and consultation page for more info.
Construction projects require coordination between landowners, third party agencies, inspectors, and mother nature. ArtisTree’s proven process, however, makes the journey smooth and efficient. We’ll conduct a site visit and survey your property to locate ideal building conditions, invite an arborist to assess the health of trees being considered and complete the designs for your project–with your input of course.
Installation & Construction
First, we source and fabricate building materials from sustainable and/or local suppliers. We then construct a “dry fit” on the ground, where we have maximum control over each piece of your treehouse. Next we begin rigging, hoisting each piece into the tree to create the bones of the structure. We then install a bridge, stairs, or unique entryway so guests can access the living structure, finishing with custom carpentry and interior design. We specialize in fine woodwork and offer craftsman furniture, bar tops, and other finish work to complete your guests’ custom treehouse.
Inspections are recommended annually to ensure a solid relationship between your treehouse and the tree supporting it. During an inspection, an ArtisTree expert builder will analyze your treehouse, your trees, and your land to guarantee the structure’s safety. As a thank you for building with ArtisTree, we are currently offering the 1st year inspection fee free of charge, with the exception of any travel or lodging costs.
Annual Inspection Cost: $2,500 plus applicable travel and lodging costs
