The earliest treehouses began as platforms built in the trees in places that were prone to flooding.
Enclosed structures soon followed, which were more similar to what you often see today.
Young people worldwide enjoy playing and having adventures in treehouses, while grownups savor the escape from everyday life and draw closer to nature in them.

How to Create Your Own Cool Treehouse Names
Treehouse designs and atmospheres are as varied as the people who use them, so you may want to create your own unique treehouse name.
Check out our tips to make the process easier:
- What’s the purpose of your treehouse? Is it a place where you and your gang of friends gather to hang out and have fun? Is it more of a private sanctuary where you can read and relax? Whatever function your treehouse serves, keeping it in mind will be helpful when creating a name, such as “Adventurer’s Fort” or “Sweet Escape.”
- Does it remind you of anything? If the inside or outside of your treehouse reminds you of something, you might want to use that as inspiration for its name. This could be a physical object, such as a mushroom or a pirate’s ship, or it could be a place you’ve visited.
- Brainstorm name ideas with others if you’ll be sharing the treehouse. If you plan to spend most of your time in the treehouse with your siblings or friends, ask them to get involved in coming up with ideas for the perfect name. You may want to narrow it down to a few favorites together, then take a vote for the best one.
