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.

Ordering via phone was easy and very helpful staff to co-ordinate around out schedule. Delivery was flawless and quick and we couldn't have been more pleased...thanks Sheds Unlimited.

Lytton-R & D from Fork, Maryland

There was not a single interaction that wasn't outstanding with Sheds Unlimited. I was forced to delay delivery TWICE. That's an issue for a business wanting to clear space of the shed built for me, but they were VERY understanding. When they delivered, it was the exact time frame stated. The delivery guy was OUTSTANDING...like a family member the way he was concerned with proper placement. It was VERY difficult spot to manuever and he took his time, was very patient and fantastic attitude, in spite of the challenges. He wanted it to be placed correctly almost if not more than me!! He took time to talk about the shed, gave me the keys to my new structure and even allowed me to pay by credit card. Such a great person to work with and outstanding representative of this outstanding company. The shed itself is OUTSTANDING. Such fantastic quality built (12x8 Workshop). Paint is perfect, everything is perfect!! I could NOT be the price anywhere locally, even INCLUDING the additional cost for delivery, the price was still FAR lower than quotes near me. The is NOTHING you should be concerned about buying from Sheds Unlimited. I've already recommended them to a friend, who is about to order having seen the quality build. I would recommend them to ANYONE (who I liked!!). No worrys. Buy with confidence. Thank you so much Sheds Unlimited, for your quality build, your outstanding people and the pricing that you offer in these tough economic times!! All the best to you!

We are very happy with the shed and the quality with which it was build. Also, your delivery guy was incredible! He had to get the shed in a tight place and he did it. Loved his attitude and his skill. Truly grateful for the quality product and service.

Paul from Harrisburg

First, I would like to say that everyone I spoke to at Sheds Unlimited was very accommodating. I needed more space in my 2 bedroom house, and I specifically needed a workspace for my growing home business, as well as an art studio. We were looking to create an alternate building in our backyard rather than live through the nightmare of adding on to our house.

Delmar was great at working with me from the start, and ran through several different estimates with me. They did a complete interior package for my shed in knotty pine and even installed radiant electric heaters that I purchased from another company so they could be hardwired behind the paneling and not have the ugly corrugated metal wires be left visible. I also chose to add a 8'x12' loft to my 12'x22' building, and they made me a beautiful detachable ladder so it could be moved when not in use. (Although, they made it so pretty I never want to move it!) Delmar was great at making sure I got the custom building I wanted.

Delivery was nothing short of amazing. We live in a very hilly area with tight, narrow streets. The tractor trailer couldn't even turn to get up our street, so our delivery guy loaded our shed on the mule and rode it up our steep street. Then he had to deliver it on an incredibly sloped, narrow yard. I am sure we were one of the harder deliveries he's had, but he worked at it like a trooper.

I am extremely pleased with my art studio out back. The work was meticulously done and well-built. They installed closed cell insulation which has made the shed easy to warm up even in 20 degree weather. It took the utility company 3 1/2 weeks to get me power after the shed was delivered, and because the shed was so well insulated, I could actually work out there in a heavy coat and not freeze in 35-40 degree weather. I think the combination of insulation and wood paneling also acts as a good sound proofer as well. I live in a pretty urban area and feel like the shed is very quiet compared to our house - I don't hear the outside noises of doors slamming and people talking as much when I am in there.

I would highly recommend this company. For the amount of space we got, we paid a lot less than we would have if we had put on an addition to our house of a comparable size. And best yet, it only had to be delivered!

Melissa Nannen from Bala Cynwyd, PA

Awesome experience from start to finish! Great customer service and delivery set up a breeze with Austin Beachy! He was able to accommodate me around my crazy schedule! Delivery was a breeze and they did a great job setting it up! Great job all around, pleasure to deal with! Will def recommend to my friends and family!

MaryAnne DeFinis from Stirling, NJ

I ordered a shed to replace an older one that was starting to fall apart. The website was extremely easy to use and I had what I wanted identified when I called. It was very easy to order and the shed was delivered exactly when they promised. The construction of the shed was excellent. I look forward to many good years with this building.

Mark Brittingham from Royersford, PA

What a beautifully built shed. Well constructed, very pleasant company to deal with, and top notch delivery. I would recommend them to everyone!

Donna Reynolds from Flemington NJ

I have a hobby/business where I build R/C airplanes for folks (primarily turbine powered ones) all over the USA. Lately I have been very busy and the primary building space I have (2 car detached garage) became extremely cramped. I found this shed site through an internet search and went up there to see what they had. All of the samples at their showroom property were very well built and had features that I liked. I was able to get exactly what I wanted plus they were able to build it on site because of the limitations of my yard for access. The build team was very competent and they constructed my shed perfectly and installed all of the components that I ordered. In addition Sheds Unlimited was able to paint my shed to match structures on the rest of my property. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing these types of structures, they were a pleasure to work with.

Getting a shed from these guys couldn't be easier. We did a rent to own arrangement because we had buildings collapse last winter and needed good, dry storage space and our plan is to build a garage and then return the shed (rent to own is really a month to month rental). The quality and appearance of the shed makes want to pay off the loan and keep it.

Laine Kasdras from Boyertown, pa

I am very pleased with the shed. Was delivered as described. Product, service and delivery where great at a fair price.
