Here is our first attempt at the knitted treehouse. A single piece of 1/2 inch nylon rope, 500 feet long, was used to knit the structure. Two platforms were knitted into the structure to give it shape and to create a sitting area. The base is anchored using eight 16 inch ground anchors, the screw type; the top is tightened with a large ratchet-strap.
