Third, find the right breed - half the battle, you also need to competently approach to the process of selecting the tree and the place where it grows.What are the requirements to be considered?

  1. plot should not be gritty.
  2. not start construction too old, or, conversely, young trees, which can not withstand the weight of the structure.
  3. Prefer branched trunk with horizontally growing branches, then you will have a lot of support points.
  4. branches for fastening structures must be a diameter of more than 20 centimeters.
  5. Check the trunk and branches, that they are not cracked, and the sharp narrowing of the signs of rot.
  6. Inspect the crown, and took to drink weak and withered branches, because they later still break the wind, what can damage the components of the house.

Take timber, loose nail nailed to a branch situated at a distance of less than 30 centimeters from the floor of the future attics.Using level, fasten the other end of the rail on the other branch is strictly horizontal.Repeat the operation with the other side of the trunk.Make sure that the boards are flush.Carefully remove the rack, measure the distance between the place where the nails were.Then, 4 m subtract this figure, the resulting number is divided into two - the size of the segment that you need to measure from the edge of the boards (5 to 25 cm).In these places, drill holes with a diameter of 1.5 cm. You also need to do more on each side of one such hole, departing from the first segment equal to the distance between the holes on the branches.Between the holes using a saw or jigsaw is necessary to make the slots in which you have to install spacers to fix the boards, and at the required distance from the trunk / branches.Materials not recommended tie, leaning against a tree, as it can continue to grow.

When the foundation is ready, you can move on to the floor.To do this, cut the board.2 boards (5 by 15 cm) should be equal to the length of the deck, the remaining 4 - 10 cm shorter.Short boards with screws to attach one of the long (perpendicular).The design lift up and tie to the supports.Then lock the second long board.Further, the case will go to the metal plates.To make the chamber's more stable, you can make stops.This requires a board 5 to 10 cm. The stops with screws, attach the lap.In the frame of the floor, set the board, making the gap of 1 cm (matchbox), because water is necessary to drain freely, and not to stay in the house.Previously on the boards should be made cutouts for the trunk and branches.Their diameter is recommended to do more than 5 cm, because the plant will continue to evolve.

It looks like the basis of the floor

From the remnants of the material make stairwell and railing.Gaps between the floor and the railings better sheathing plywood or boards.The roof can be made of canvas.To do this, at a height of 2 meters on either side of attics screw 2 hooks between them need to pull a cable.Through cable perekin'te tarpaulin on the perimeter and corners, pulling, fix the tissue.Stairs do on its own.Babies prefer the rope, however, consider the age of the "owners" of the house.

If the ladder will be installed at the center, it is necessary to make such a hatch
