Coinciding with my residency at Great Brampton House, Jasmine Riordan has been running a project to install a treehouse at the furthest end of the house’s grounds. The term treehouse may not suffice to capture the scale of this undertaking, when complete the structure is intended to be used as a fully furnished accommodation for guests.
Yesterday the first of two platforms were raised into the tree. Secured by bolts at the top and support beams running towards the tree’s base the two floor sections will then be connected via a third section created in situ. Eventually a building will be erected upon this with a balcony offering views across adjacent fields and Brampton Hill Wood.
