      Tree house build

      Thought I would share what I've been working on lately instead of trains.  We had another baby boy born in May of last year, so hobby stuff has gotten put on the back burner for a while.

      My 6-year old asked for a tree house for his birthday.  I started this in January, and finished it July 5th.  I tried to do mortise & tenon joinery wherever possible.  About the time I got the tree house dried in, he decided he wanted a swing and a slide.

      Somehow, my pictures failed to get included in the original post.  I have edited to put them back in.

      Very cool!  I do think you need to build a scale model of it.  Wow!

      Love it Burl!!!

       

      We have a section of woods in our backyard, kids have been asking for a treehouse. You've inspired ideas. Did you build it from purchased plans, design it on your own, etc?

      Designed it myself.  I made some rough drawing in Sketchup, and went from there.
