Pete Nelson is the co-founder of The Treehouse Workshop in Seattle, Washington. Pete designed his first treehouse while in high school and though it was never built, the foundations were laid for his future work.
Pete established The Treehouse Workshop in 1997 and has designed and built treehouses all over the United States as well as in Japan, Spain, and Morocco. His creations range from small structures that serve as play spaces for kids to full-scale homes and educational facilities. Each treehouse is a unique structure that must fit the living trees that support it and leave room for them to move and grow.
Pete is also an active educator and evangelist for treehouses. The Treehouse Workshop provides specialty hardware and offers courses in treehouse design and construction. In addition, Pete has written five books on treehouses, treehouse construction, and treehouse living.
