This wooden boat-shaped tree fort is a fun upgrade on the usual treehouse, and the decoration possibilities are endless. It can easily be turned into a pirate ship (just add a pirate flag!) or you can keep it simple—plus, you can paint it however you'd like once it's built. There's no word in the listing about how long it takes to build this particular treehouse and you can't see exactly what materials are needed until you've bought and downloaded the plans, but you can rest assured knowing they'll take you step-by-step through the whole process.

Stone, a retired engineer based in Canada, sells plans for various DIY projects on his Etsy shop, all of which are affordable (the treehouse, for example, is listed for just $10) and available for instant download. Alongside this awesome ship treehouse, you'll also find plans for houses, garages, storage sheds, saunas, chicken coops, doghouses, greenhouses, row boats, and more.
