Many house plans incorporate a guest suite on the first level of a home with room for a closet, bed and some sitting room. Some go as far as including a private bathroom. For guests with children, home plans that include a den or daylight basement are great as they allow an out-of-the-way sleeping area for the children.
Finally with all these other steps done, the cost can be calculated and checked to see if it is within the budget. Knowing what tools are needed and if they are available or have to be bought can also be a factor. What type of materials are going to be incorporated is another issue in the price. But if anyone was to compare the difference in price between a store bought prefabricated playhouse package and a Do-It-Yourself one they would see that building your own is always cheaper, easier to customize and more fun for the whole family.
Of course the last thing you want is for the tree-house to fall down after all your hard work and effort, especially if someone is inside it when it does! Don’t neglect regularly checking the floors, decks, railings, etc. for any signs of rot or weakness. Check the ladders, steps, and walkways also and make sure that damage is repaired immediately. Also, regularly check the tree itself for any growth and movement and make sure that you fix any attachments when and if needed without delay.

The floor of your tree home should fit tightly against the tree and cover your platform. Keep in mind a few supports under your floor will be necessary if your building a bigger tree house.
