Preamble
Build a Treehouse on pole - DIY Instructions
In 2015, I visited the backyard of my friend Serge Tremblay. On the side of his garden, he built a treeless treehouse on a telephone post.

He choose a nice spot for watching the river right beside.

Made from wood, this treehouse is used by few kids like a playhouse. They can sleep comfortably in it as they want!
