Tree House

The idea of the Tree House came up awhile ago. Maybe a couple of years. Nana wanted a two story high Tree House for the monsters to escape while they are at her house. I said NO WAY!!! They will fall and break bones. As they got older, it seemed like they would really have fun with it.

Moose has been drawing up plans for about a year now. Ideas included a tight rope, slide, fireman's' pole, trap doors, and other wild things from a 6 year old's imagination.

Serious talk started late summer about gathering supplies. More importantly gathering free or used supplies. Construction started in September. What was thought to be a weekend project took over a month to complete. Long weekends and many nights after work.

This Tree House blows me away every time I see it. Painted as a cabin, it fits perfectly in the back yard. The ladder is high enough off the ground that sharkbait can not climb up my himself yet.

Amenties include:
Stable Ladder
Trap Door with a Pulley System
Functional Windows
Porch
Toys and blankets for use in Tree House
Horse Swing- Coolest Swing EVER
