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.

mike gawronski from New castle, delaware

Such a wonderful experience from start to finish. The Sheds team took care of everything. They were extremely pleasant to work with. Delmar was so patient and knowledgeable as was James. And we were amazed at how fast and professional the crew was that built the garage on site. Highly recommend. Couldn't be happier.

Nick M. from Wyckoff, NJ

Great, great,great job. From the time we walked the extensive invintory on the lot to the clean up after our shed was installed. Couldn’t have went smoother. The communication thru the process was spot on. The 3 young men that installed my shed couldn’t have been nicer or worked any smarter. Couldn’t be anymore satisfied. Thank you so much

Mike keavec from 1317 Bonair Terrace Havertown Pa 19083

I bought a garage from Sheds Unlimited a year ago, and I am still very pleased. Everything was just as I had specified. They were very easy to work with, and the price was competetive.
Even though it was a large ('24 x '48) building, their crew had it up in a day. Even our county buulding inspector commented on the quality of the workmanship. Everyone who sees my garage loves it.
Sheds Unlimited is an honest, concientious firm. I would reccomend them to anyone!

john shiner from Edgewood md.

I can honestly say my experience with Sheds Unlimited was a pleasant from our visit to the facility in Pa. to delivery.

Jim P from Whippany,NJ

The folks at sheds unlimited are the very best. I talked to them several times before ordering, and they answered every question, and then some. I live in a neighborhood with an association, and need to have all building plans approved. Sheds unlimited provided me with color samples, and a drawing. I made many changes in the workshop, moving the doors to the end, left the shutters off, added window boxes, and added one foot to the height of the walls to accommodate our golf cart.
We live as far south on the eastern shore of Virginia. Our shed arrived on time, and was built exactly as promised. The driver was courteous, and operated the "mule" without any effort. He placed the shed exactly on my marks, leveled the shed, and insured the doors would open properly.
I would, and have recommended Sheds Unlimited to my friends, and would buy from them again.
In this day, and age there is a lot to be said for integrity, and Sheds unlimited certainly has that!!

Great service from time of order to delivery!

MMK from Owings Mills, MD

Purchased custom 8 x 30 shed after seeing one my neighbor bought a few months ago. Had an extra door put in the end and shed came as advertised.
Great job by the delivery guy since it was not an easy placement. That little device they call a MULE is fantastic. As long as your not trying to get a 10 foot shed in a 9 foot space they will get it there. Only question is delivery charges and permit charges. If they are piggybacking my shed with other delivery in the area why am I charged full rate on the delivery and permit. Seems to me they could share the cost. Other than that fair prices and excellent quality on the shed.

Rick williams from Southern NJ

The garage we ordered was absolutely beautiful and better than we imagined. The people who we communicated with were extremely easy to speak with. They answered all our questions with great deal of knowledge. The delivery was exactly as promised and also very professional. I would absolutely recommend sheds unlimited to everyone who is looking for a great product and great price.
