<p>“A tree house can, according to your wishes and possibilities, be planned and realized by us in different sizes, designs, and equipment,” explains Wenning. “Most of our tree houses are small units, comparable to the size of a small motorhome.”</p>

<p> Each tree house built by the firm is entirely custom-designed, taking the site plan into account, as well as the wellbeing of the trees. To reduce impact at the site, the team prefabricates many of the houses, arranging them so that the surrounding trees’ roots wouldn’t be harmed.</p>
<p>“Our main focus in planning and construction is the careful handling of the trees and the surrounding natural space,” notes Wenning. “With our innovative constructions and materials used, we take utmost account of nature and the environment.”</p>

“The interior and exterior surfaces can be left untreated or oiled, waxed, varnished, or painted,” says Wenning. “There is a wide range of ecologically harmless products available. The interiors can also consist of natural insulation materials such as wood fiber boards, sheep wool mats, or coconut fibers.”
