When Life Gives you Trees… Build a Treehouse Shed!

Buy Treehouse Shed For Sale Near Me, PA

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade… so they say… Better yet, when life gives you trees, build a treehouse! You could even enjoy drinking the lemonade up there!

That’s what Lauren from Dover, Massachusetts decided to do to spruce up her backyard and make a lovely place for the kids to enjoy...and a place to drink lemonade :)

Inspired by the Treehouse Masters who build luxury treehouses that might cost as much as a home, Lauren and her husband set out to build something that would sit in the trees and be a nice place for an evening of fun… But not cost an arm and a leg!

Even more, the treehouse shed could be set up as a small shed with living space if Lauren ever decided she needed a She Shed or her husband wanted a Man Cave!

Getting the Storage Shed Treehouse Figured Out

Not every storage shed builder in the world has what it takes to build a storage shed in a tree! So Lauren and her husband did a search online for both the style of building they wanted and a builder who had the equipment to get the storage shed up on top of the platform they planned to build.

That is when they found Sheds Unlimited in Lancaster County, PA. They also found a storage shed design that gave them the look they wanted in a Treehouse for their Massachusetts home.

After perusing the options at Sheds Unlimited, they chose the Premier Garden Shed with a steep roof pitch and plenty of windows included. The steeper Treehouse Shed roof pitch was important as it would give them more space for a loft inside and space for the children to play around in the loft. Added to that was a 5’ shed dormer on the roof to give just a bit more light and even more space for the loft area.

Drawings for the Treehouse Shed

When it comes to putting a shed in the backyard, you might be able to do it with little hassle in terms of township guidelines and permitting issues. But putting a shed on stilts up in the trees adds some extra challenges. The first thing a town will need is a set of plans for the building so they can be sure the building and the platform will hold up.

Sheds Unlimited offers free plans on any building over $10,000 with a $275.00 deposit that then goes towards the purchase of the building.

So Lauren and her husband gave the designer at Sheds Unlimited the layout of the treehouse shed they had envisioned. The shed plans soon came back and were submitted to the town for approval. ​

Getting the Treehouse Shed in Place

Now comes the fun part. After approvals were in and the platform was built, Lauren was excited to get the shed in place up in the trees.

The building process began at the Sheds Unlimited manufacturing facility in Lancaster County, PA. The walls , as far as they could be, the rafters were tacked together and many of the pieces precut for assembly on the treehouse platform.

After doing the pre-building of the treehouse shed, all the parts were loaded onto the truck and trailer along with a lift to help get the heavy walls up onto the platform. Early one morning, the Sheds Unlimited team started on their treehouse building adventure. They drove the several hours to Lauren’s home in Massachusetts.

The Treehouse Shed Takes Shape

The team arrived early in the morning and began unloading the truck. First steps were to get the floor parts assembled up on the platform that was ready for the treehouse. Within hours the shed on stilts had taken shape and was rising into the trees.

So exciting! A dream was coming true!

When the floor was finished, then came the walls. One section at a time and the treehouse was starting to look like a little house. Then came the rafters, sheathing, and shingles. Finishing touches included painting, lofts and installing windows and doors!

By the end of the day, the treehouse shed was finished and ready-to-go. Now, all it needed was some basic furniture to make the cozy space Lauren wanted. Here it is with some carpet on the floor and basic furniture for a small backyard getaway.

How Does it Compare to the Treehouse Guys?

While it certainly doesn’t compare with the Treehouse Masters treehouse tours, it did turn out to be a small backyard getaway for the children and one that could be finished out later for a getaway from the busyness of life Lauren was delighted!

The photos here don’t show the building finished out on the inside. But just to give some inspiration, here is what a small treehouse shed could look like if you are dreaming of the same.

mary and dennis demoore from North babylon, new york

My neighbor purchased one of the sheds and I jusr fell in love with it and had to have one myself. They set the date and before you know it it was there and right at the time they said it would be delivered. This shed will give me many many years of use. I only wish that I had a larger space and purchased a larger one. You guys are the best and keep up the good work. By the way the delivery person was just the best and accomodating as well. Thanks

Great customer service and great shed!

Chris D from Hawthorne, NY

Nothing but good things to say about sheds unlimited. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. They were upfront with pricing and delivery. Thanks again Sheds Unlimited.

Matt Stringer from Honey Brook,PA

Shopped around and this was the best deal out there. Shed was built to last. Had to wait for delivery but it was worth it!! Very pleased with customer service.

Joe S. from Bel Air Md.

I had my custom 12x16 shed delivered recently and like other people who have given reviews I was equally amazed by how one person could deliver the shed and professionally install it flawlessly. My wife and I visited their location in Gap, PA to view the many designs and options available and were very pleased with the service, knowledge and experience. The final product is very well designed, bulit and looks great! Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Brian from Mullica Hill, NJ

My husband and I looked for a new shed at many places. Sheds Unlimited was a step above the other places. Their lot is huge, and they have so many prebuilt sheds to look at. Even if you want a custom built, it makes it nice to be able to see the options in person first. The employees were all very nice and helpful, from the first time we looked, to delivery. The delivery went very smooth, and I was impressed at how easy they made it look to get my shed where I needed it. We did give the delivery guy a tip. I would recommend this company and their sheds to anyone in the market for one.

Heather Knaub from Reading, PA

Excellent Job! Delivered as promised, very well built. The whole process went very smoothly. Thanks so much for my new, awesome, 20' x 32' garage with 10' walls, 2x6 construction, scissor truss 12' inside center ceiling height, custom window configurations, metal roof, etc.

Brian Ames from Philadelphia PA

I recently purchased replacement shed doors from Shed's Unlimted.  The staff was very helpful and the quality and finsih of the product was outstanding.  The kits included hardware, pre-drilled pilot holes, and even touch-up paint and a brush!  With products and service this good for a small purcahse, I will be back soon for the detached garage.  Well Done!

John Davis from Skippack, PA

We recently had a two car garage installed. The two guys from Sheds unlimited, Gideon and Mark were unbelievable! They worked so hard and had the garage up in one day. They were also super nice and easy to work with. John, who we dealt with during the design process was also great. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Our garage is beautiful.
