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.

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.

Customers service was unreal (Thanks Mark!). I had to get a shed on a very short notice and tight time frame. They worked with me, were able to accommodate my timing which was a big deal. The item that worked for my specification was available, all the specs and requestioned were answered and reviewed with utmost courtesy, care and professionalism. Quality of the shed is amazing and at a great price. Would highly recommend !

M. Lehrfeld from Far Rockaway, NY

Excellent job by everyone at Sheds Unlimited. From the design phase with Mark and Delmar to plans and scheduling with Kyle and John. Everything went exactly as planned and scheduled, which is a rarity these days. Any questions or concerns on my 24x36 oversized 3 car garage were answered within minutes not days or weeks. Craftsmanship is A+ and the crew of four workers were second to none working quickly and carefully to keep my already landscaped site prestine. Thank you guys again for a job well done!

Awesome experience! The 3 guys who erected the building were wonderful and very accomadating. The building is beautiful, and is actually being turned into a residence. I couldn't be more happy. They are hard working, despite rainy weather and very mountainous terrain. I am making a CD of the process for their office. Again kudos to all involved, and thank you.

Karen Sullivan from Charity, Va

I purchased this shed a couple years back....Oh boy the shed is awesome. When I requested a fold out window on the side they hooked it up with ease. Quality!!If you’re thinking about buying a shed at Home Depot etc. Don’t do it. These sheds are worth it. Oh and Brittany from customer service and the guy who delivered the shed were awesome to work with.....

Joe from Middletown NJ

and very help full in everyway.
These GUYS are the best.
You won't find a bettter deal.

The web site was excellent and very easy to order and figure out the options that we wanted. The quality of our utility shed is great and it looks good in our yard. The delivery was on time and painless with the shed put just where we wanted it. The price was reasonable and competitive with other options. We're very satisfied customers.

THE DELIVERY EQUIPMENT IS AMAZING.

tony alesandro from Lavallette nj

We had a wonderful experience with the staff at Sheds Unlimited. All were very knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant to work with. John helped us to design and customize a premier one car garage that we could not be happier with. Shane did a great job getting the shed into place and installing the finishing touches. The entire staff was top notch. The new garage really dresses up our back yard and we are so excited to use it. We highly recommend Sheds Unlimited. You will not be disappointed.

Courtney from Morgantown, PA

Having seen an example on my neighbor's property, I knew the quality of the products produced by Sheds Unlimited would be flawless. Thus the more important point would be the customer service I would receive. From the first phone call where all my questions were answered and I was assisted in every aspect of ordering the correct shed to meet my needs, I knew this was one great company. The shed is perfect, the delivery person was efficient and personable. I could not be happier with the experience and would highly recommend this company to all.

Judy Hedden from Doylestown, Pa.

I only have one negative comment about my experience with Sheds Unlimited and that is that I was told my shed would be delivered between 3 and 5 p.m. and it didn't arrive until 7:15 p.m. and it was very dark by then. The police came and nearly gave the driver a citation for being on the road after dark. I wish I had been given a phone call to tell me how late the driver was running so I wouldn't have been sitting around for so long. Because of the darkness I had to use my painters lights to allow the driver to guide the shed into my back yard, the shed was not put on the pad evenly and I had to level it myself the next day. The shed itself is perfect and I am very happy with my purchase.
