The owner of this tree house asked for something grand; a Swiss Family Robinson tree house with style. She designated the setting to be a jungle outpost, with the theme, "Victorian Meets The Jungle." We felt it would be appropriate for a shipwreck to "introduce" Victorian to the Jungle, and came up with this amazing tree house design.
Many of the features of the clubhouses were inspired by actual structures on the estate. It features 4 incredible, totally custom tree houses, with 3, 5'+ diameter logs, and one mammoth size, 10' diameter log that tipped the scales at 26,000 pounds!
The tree houses were placed on the corners of a rectangular plot, and the clubhouses were all connected with a network of bridges, stairs, and slides. Complete with talk tubes, eight 90 year old brass portholes from a real ship (the glass was over 1" thick!), movie props from the 1979 motion picture, "Raise The Titanic," hand woven cargo net railing, real ship lanterns, electricity, plumbing, ships steering wheels and more, this astonishing fort is unlike any in the world. This is just an example of what DWL can, and has produced given the right resources.
