In the middle of a little wilderness, tucked away on a steep hillside, the Crooked Gap Clubhouse is a great place for rambunctious kids to spend time outside! Just getting to the entrance ramp requires sliding down a hill while holding on to the Giant Rope wrapped around the tree that stands guard at the top. Once on deck, there is access to the hill below via the challenging Rock Climbing Wall and/or the Coil Climber.

Built around and attached to this beautiful old oak tree, Terra Verde Treehouse sits securely on top multiple, large branches that wrap up and around the decks. The 6ft x 8ft waterproof Clubhouse comes with cedar shingled roof, hand-made glass windows and board & batten siding.  Three decks provide great viewing spots and the small upper deck doubles as the take-off platform for the 120ft zipline ride. Beautiful, functional & fun for the kids with a firepole, pulley bucket, rope swing, and rope-n-rung ladder. 

Together with the city of Palo Alto, the Friends of the Palo Alto Parks and Friends of the Magical Bridge Playground, we are creating the most innovative, inclusive playground in the country. Combined with our signature level of design and an all-encompassing mindset, we aim to create a playground that includes the many different types of people who are living in this community — those with autism, sensory and cognitive issues, visual limitations and older adults. The Magical Bridge Playground will be open to everyone Fall 2014 in Palo Alto's Mitchell Park. Stay glued to facebook.com/BarbaraButlerTreehouses and instagram.com/barbarabutlerbuilds for the most up-to-date progress. 

Wrapped around a gorgeous old oak tree that sits high above a valley, the Old Oak Treehouse provides kids and adults of all ages with a compelling experience in a peaceful environment. The Juliet Balcony, built into the one-of-a-kind, two-tiered deck system, allows you to stand & look out at the world and revel in the beauty of nature.

Set sail on a wild adventure aboard the pirate-themed Inverness Treehouse. Intentionally hidden within a grove of trees, this treehouse was crafted for the kid in all of us. The vast amount of space that the Inverness Treehouse covers enables it to include two tree perches, a swinging bridge, a clubhouse, a rope climb and a water cannon. With that many options, anyone who chooses to embark on a journey through this sea of leaves is guaranteed to discover a world of fun.

Nestled between three beautiful Redwood trees, this one of a kind two-tiered treehouse is held eight feet in the air. The handcrafted, straight rung ladder connects the ground to a 35 square foot, rectangular deck. The option to ride the tree-to-tree heavy duty Zip Line or to relax in the clubhouse makes the Redwood Treehouse a perfect combination of adventure and serenity.
