  1. Miss your tv series. I wish you would come back. At least think about it. I miss you and team I hope everyone is well and you guys are going strong. My best.

  2. This article is very interesting; however, there is one error in it: Pete and Judy Nelson have one daughter and two sons rather than three daughters as stated in the article.

  3. I recently watched the show where you built a tree home in Neskowin, OR. My question is, where does the running water come from? And where does the waste water go? Love the show. Watch at least one a week.

  4. Miss your show. Hope life has been good to your family and business during recent troubled times. My husband and I live in Tennessee. Is there anywhere a person could go to see an example of your tree houses? We live in an underground home we built about 24 years ago. Would love to get a feel of what it would be like to be in the trees.

  5. Love the treehouse masters show… Peak Nelson seems like a great funny guy. And after watching the show I so want a treat house in my backyard But it’s probably not big enough. Maybe someday.

  6. I’m writing to find out more about the more recent additions to a few of the more remotely located tree houses, like the one that was built in Seattle, right on the edge of some of the shear rock cliffs that they had to use barges to bring in their materials on and then impressively had carried up those cliff facings in order to complete the project. anyways, what I’m inquiring about in reference to that Seattle build is the self-composting toilet & the water catching & filtration system that Pete had to use for the Seattle-built tree house. Is this something that Pete himself designed and built himself and if it would be possible for me to purchase the blueprints for both of those most awesome additions??? or if none of the build secrets for those contraptions are available for purchase, is there any information available that your company could and will make available to me, even if I must buy the info., then just name your price? FRFR, I MUST KNOW HOW THE WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM WORKS, PLEASE!!!!!
