Premise: People who know and work with Pete Nelson describe him as a tree whisperer. For his part, Nelson lets the trees do the talking. He's a world-renowned treehouse designer and builder, and this series documents the work he and his team of craftsmen -- including his son Charlie -- do to create incredible homes and businesses in nature's canopy. Pete uses a combination of science and art to realize clients' sky-high aspirations of magnificent multibedroom treehouses with elaborate kitchens and bathrooms, or simpler, peaceful one-room escapes. ``We awaken that inner child who dreams of living among the trees,'' Pete says. One-of-a-kind above-ground spaces featured in the series include a spa retreat, a brewery, a honeymoon suite, an Irish-themed cottage, and an 800-square-foot Texas treehouse with a full bath and flat-screen TV.
Surrounded by fields of red poppies and intertwined within a giant live oak, Pete creates a dining room tree house with a Provence countryside feel as part of a French restaurant.
