Established in 1995
It all began with a dad called Zyne who realised that as his girls, Zianè & Zaylee, were growing up they needed a place that they could call their own, where they could imagine and play.
Whilst at home one night he decided that a treehouse would be the best for his little girls, with great disappointment he discovered that nowhere and no one in South Africa did any treehouses that are innovative or fun.
The kids’ favourite bedtime story at that stage was “Alice in Wonderland” . It had the most fascinating houses with odd shapes, crooked roofs with the most mesmerising colours. Inspired by this and the undivided support from his beloved wife Antoinette he worked tirelessly in his own garage to make his vision a reality.
With Vision, Dedication and Passion he built the most imaginative treehouse for his two little girls, even exceeding his own expectations. Kids soon all over the neighbourhood wanted to see this extraordinary treehouse.
Word soon got out, and kids Playhouses and Treehouses had to be built for family and friends across Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa, till this very day…
