Want to be a Treehouse Builder?
As a small but growing tree house building company, we are always interested in finding talented and enthusiastic people to join the team. However, we seldom find an applicant who is a highly skilled carpenter, an experienced tree climber, enjoys customer service, is a creative designer, and has a business savvy! In reality, most new treehouse builder applicants can only check one or two of those boxes, and that’s okay if you bring a great attitude! We are always interested in hearing from you if you are a hard worker and enthusiastic about tree houses!

The Life of a Traveling Treehouse Builder
All members of our full time building team must be able to travel overnight for work. Traveling, while sometimes fun, often feels like the hardest part of the job. Every treehouse company that we know of has wrestled with this issue. It is at times tough on families. Traveling is generally 3 days to 2 weeks at a time. Full time builder applicants must live within commuting distance of West Chester, PA because as much work as possible is done in the shop and many of our projects are in south east Pennsylvania.
Tree Top Builders is an equal opportunity employer (EOE). Qualified applicants are considered for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or veteran status. Treehouses for all, built by all.
