I constructed a tree house with my Structural Analysis class at Dartmouth. My team designed the connections to the trees and support structure that held up the tree house. We calculated the static and dynamic loads on the connections and support structure and then purchased the appropriately rated wood, steel cables and fasteners. Finally, we built and assembled the support structure and helped hoist the platform onto the supports. Photo courtesy of Doug Fraser/Thayer School of Engineering.
