So in case that you do not have suitable trees in your yard or you just have in mind the tree health, this tree house with no attachments to trees is the ideal option.
The structure of this tree house is versatile and very stable, having a triangular framework as a support.

The footprint of this tree house is stable and large, preventing racking. Use two carriage bolts with predrilled holes to make the front assembly. As you build, constantly check if the assembly remains square. Prevent any barked shins or scrapes by rounding off the pointy or sharp ends. After cutting off the bolt ends, you may file them smooth and chamfer them and you can use foam pipe wrap or camping pads to avoid any bruises and bumps.

Ask some neighbors or relatives to help you assembly up the frame, to arrange it at the correct height above the ground and to level it as well. Maybe you will have to trim or dig into the ground some legs, depending on the surface of the ground and if it has any irregularities. You have some heavy pieces propped up with several temporary braces, so work cautiously when fixing the structure and frame.
Always do double checks when measuring, because you want it to be perfectly stable and level. Consider adding a door and some windows to the tree house, to allow air circulation. Bring inside the favorite toys of your children, put some chairs and add some source of light to let them play inside their tree house even when it will be darker outside.
