    "literally" the first time you used a saw or hammer or driver? not very doable.

        I’d recommend you kill a few birds with terrible birdhouses before moving on to humans.

      Not him but why can't you reproduce someone else's design by following step by step plans and video instructions? These days there are detailed instructions for everything. I replaced some things in the house without knowing anything about plumbing. Just follow the instructions.

        >following step by step plans and video instructions?

        I suppose you can find "step by step" instructions to build an elevated structure like OP wants if you watch a few hundred videos and piece all the steps together somehow, but I maintain that very few people could use the internet as their only source of information and do a safe and acceptable job of building OP's treehouse. The eaves and soffit 20-30 feet in the air for example; nobody publishes "step by step" beginner instructions for that because beginners have no business doing that.

        A really smart person could figure it all out, but a really smart person won't show up in this dumpster fire of a forum.

          imagine thinking this way. if you can understand the difference between 12-on-center and 16-on-center and have a spare finger to pull the framing nailer trigger you can literally build a house.

            lel. this has to be sarcasm. either way, I'm out of this laugh-fest. have a nice day, anon, and keep those spare fingers to yourself. literally.

    There's nothing particularly difficult in its design and basic construction and principles that couldn't be picked up by someone with a desire to learn and discipline to really understand the process before jumping in...

    but the fact that it is elevated can/will make certain aspects of the build very awkward, difficult and dangerous even if you have the kind of equipment to automate the necessary lifting and placement of the various parts...things like cranes and lifting gear might alleviate the dangers of manual lifting methods while adding others.

    As for diying it, even for an experienced builder you'd need help at some point- and not just dumb ox warm bodies, someone with the smarts to anticipate problems and danger before catsstrophe strikes.

    You need to know how to cut angles for the roof and stairs, set piers, and make sure things are plumb but none of that is too hard.

          Yeah but still, they usually just have one of those super steep metal pan stairs not 5 landings.

            That's actually smart. Set up some goyslop bait for the animals and then just wait for them to come.
            If you were actually hunting because you want food (and not just for fun) I'd say that's pretty efficient.
            But obviously that's not the case lol

          Stairs are safer to lug things like firearms and ammunition up than a ladder.

    I built one of these when I was young and new to woodwork. It wasn't all that hard. I didn't have such a complicated stairway, just a few sturdy boards screwed onto the legs and a handle up top to make pulling myself inside easier. I also used scrap tin for the roof because I'm lazy.
    I eventually painted it for camo, added a door, and added some sliding boards to cover the windows when not in use.
    Was a good stand. Shot my first buck out of it.

    Build some decking and fences first. Then you'll have some idea what you're doing.

    I think most people could make a structure that vaguely resembles that given enough time, money and motivation, but someone that's bad at woodworking or construction in general will make something that

    for starters there are better ways to to that, whatever that is. but no reason you couldn't knock that out with some intelligence and research. my first building was a 9x13 barn with ramps and double doors at each end, and a man door in the side. did everything 100% by my self except moving the actual bag of shingles to the roof.

      ok but the problem was it was affecting native americans, who hunt to survive. And it was affecting nimbys, who like deer in their yard.

    Looks like a hunting shack I built with my stepdad.

    Honestly not too bad but you are GOING to frick up some cuts.

    I don't get why you would build it this way.
    You'd make it out of metal, just have 4 poles, cement footing and a regular ladder. To get things in and out you have a simple pulley basket.

    You're probably using more wood then the metal would be worth, metal you could probably get as scrap, which wouldn't rot. You can't use softwood outdoors without it rotting, that this isn't even tarred or painted, waste of money.
    Frick sake, use three poles and a tree you've docked.

    As a kid I used to make towers with willow trees, they root so easily you just lay a 6/6 willow post, cut joins with a saw and dowel it. Then root willow at the base of the posts which initially will act as a brace, then a footing, and eventually replace the whole post and you'll have a godly elfbuild. People used to find from miles to see my elfbuilds in the woods
