FAQ: Tree House Packages
NOTE: Many of your questions may be answered in our Video section.
1. How tall is a tree house?
Answer: About 14' tall
2. How big is the log?
Answer: Each log is different, but they are typically 4' in diameter and 6' tall.
3. How big is it inside?
Answer: The clubhouse floor measures 4'x5'. The height at the peak of the ceiling is about 6'; an adult can stand straight up inside with room to spare. The Holt Hideout features a lower clubhouse with a 5'x6' floor, a 5'x6' balcony, and a 4'x5' floor in the upper clubhouse. Whether you have 1-2 kids or 5-6 kids or even more, we have a design that will accommodate your needs.
4. How much does it weigh?
Answer: Clubhouses weigh anywhere from 1,100-1,600 lbs. Most logs weigh about 2,500-3,500 lbs. Some normal size logs can weigh as much as 7,000 lbs. The heaviest log we ever brought in weighed 26,000 lbs!
5. How long does it take for my order to arrive?
Answer: Typically from 6-8 weeks.
6. Can I make custom requests?
Answer: Absolutely! Many of our standard options actually came from special requests.
7. What age group do you recommend for your tree houses?
Answer: We recommend all ages! Kids or no kids, they make incredible additions to any landscape!
8. What kind of trees do you use?
Answer: We primarily use oak, pine and eucalyptus trees. Each kind works equally well.
9. Where do you find trees that big?
Answer: We find them all over the central coast of California. Since we only use dead or dying trees it makes the search harder, but we have developed several ways to locate them.
10. Are you allowed to cut down trees that big?
Answer: We only use recycled logs! Any log we receive must be dead or dying before we'll accept it. The only other situation in which we acquire a log is when its alternative fate would either be a trip to a local landfill or firewood cutter.
11. If I buy a tree house and later sell my home, will you help me move it?
Answer: We recommend that you sell your tree house with your home (after all, it will add value to your property) and order a new one from us!
12.How many kids can fit inside?
Answer: For a base model tree house, 3 kids fit OK; the 4th one will make things a little crowded. There are several ways to accommodate larger crowds though.
13.What does it look like inside of the clubhouse?
Answer: They typically look something like this
but feel free to call us about painting or theming out the interior to make it your own!
14.I live on the other side of the country or out of the country. Can you ship the tree house to me still?
Answer: Absolutely. We can ship worldwide. If shipped within the US, shipping rates vary from $500-$3300 in most cases. We can ship to most overseas ports for $3500-$4500.
15. Can a Tree House Package come with electricity?
Answer: Yes. But why stop there when we can hook you up for cable and internet?
