Great American Country’s The Treehouse Guys follows a six-member team of expert builders and designers as they travel across the country to create and build custom treehouses for families, communities, nature lovers and dreamers.

Treehouse designer James “B’fer” Roth says that when he realized his passion for creative building projects, he ended his studies at Michigan State University in order to create universally accessible treehouses for kids with disabilities. He soon met his business partner and fellow builder Chris “Ka-V” Haake when Chris stopped by B’fer’s rustic furniture shop, intrigued by all the unusual building materials. For several years, the two built furniture and then transitioned into treehouse building in 2000.

The Treehouse Guys team of builders also includes designer and foundation expert Michael Garnier, who is known as a master of platform design—a key element in the beginning stages of a build; designer, trained tree climber and master rigger Jake Jacob; rigger and zip line expert Jason Lindsey and lead carpenter Javier Aranzubia.
