Tree Fort

back

I think most country homes have some type of tree fort in their backyard.  The man of the house decided about 3 years ago we needed one also.   So he set off to build it.

Phase 1 took not too long and was planned around a beautiful oak tree

Phase 2 was a little tougher.  Attaching the slide was almost as hard as adding the roof.  The boys sure didn’t mind waiting

Phase 3 adding windows and a railing went smoothly.  Even the goats joined in to check out the materials and a baby making sure it was low enough for him to see out of.  The railing is made from larger sticks we collected from our woods

A dutch door was made and some furniture accents were added.  There is enough seating for 6 kids and the bench blocks the opening to the slide so all the little children who visit are safe

The views out the window allow the kids to see all of the action

Next season it will be stained to match the barn and woodshed.  For right now it is the perfect escape for the children and a great hang out area for their friends!!
