Treehouse Update


The tree house became semi-functional for children as of yesterday!!!! It has primitive railings (they still need to be finished), a ladder, and the kids can use the slide, and deck.


However, there are a million other things yet to be done including windows, doors, rope climb, roof, climbing wall, and a gate of some sort to keep kids from falling out the bottom, probably not the least of which is the latter. But with a little supervision it is usable!



We will be doing a board and batten exterior.  Hopefully we'll finish it by next weekend.

 Even I installed 5 of 9 of the rafters.  There is still a lot to be done to the roof.

Nick constructed a ladder and he installed one of the easiest windows to install (the picture window) on Friday.  We have another 3 windows and a door to go.


Even if only semi-functional, the kids are already have a blast on it.  With the work it has taken, hopefully, it will last more than just a few hours of entertainment.

Very cool. My dad built us a tree house, minus the tree through the middle, but it was near trees. It was so many imaginative things and stayed as part of our lives well into highschool - great escape from the parents. I'm sure it will get used and it is a great way to get the kids outside into nature.

I find it odd that your posts dont appear to have dates, just times... there could be something existential behind that, or maybe I am just blind.

Nice work, Keep it Up!
