**Post Conf: Mon. Oct. 8 thru Wed. Oct. 10th on treehouse building synopsized as follows: A full three day hands-on workshop "post-conf" to the 2012 WT&ZC is being offered on the essentials of treehouse building. This workshop serves as a compliment to the content of the core conference and is most beneficial if participated in conjunction with the pre-conf as well as the core conf. It will be a thorough overview of the complete process of getting a practical design up into a tree safely and in concert with the tree(s)… from idea, vision, tree selection (including tree biology), plan, design, engineer and construct. An introduction to the skill set that has evolved in the last 20 years that make the tasks of tree entry, tree climbing, treehouse rigging and tips and techniques in the actual building process into a practical craft that will stand out as a nice new item in your toolbox.
The workshop will be facilitated by Jake Jacob, treehouse rigger and Peter Nelson, author of several books on treehouses and exceptional designer. Experienced members of TreeHouseWorkshop.com, Nelson Treehouse & Supply, TreehouseARTZ and Out'n'About companies will instruct and assist. An arborist will guide us through tree assessment and a whole lot more about trees. An in depth session on the careful dance between engineers and trees with structures will be presented as well.
Note: The object of the workshop, a finished treehouse, has an actual client! The treehouse design that will serve as the guide in this particular workshop is being built for a neighbor who is a customer, they will serve as our host during building on their site. Meals and lodgings will still be served and organized at Out'n'About Treesort a couple doors down.
Look for more detailed daily schedules here as we firm up more of the plans!
