UPDATED! April 27th 2006.
The Treehouse is going on 3 years old. As you can see the roof has
been redone. It's a very light and water tight roof too. See the updated
pictures section below. Other new stuff includes a full carpet. A second lamp
and a TV/DVD player!
After the Treehouse be sure to check out my new Front Yard Pond.
Visit the pond now!

The Treehouse has successfully survived
its first winter. We had a number of storms
here in Michigan. No cracks, no lost siding, the roof is still attached and the trees appear to be doing well.
The Treehouse can really move in
the wind. The braces have really held up well.
See the Design pictures page for some close up pics.
All together 12 8"x1" and 4 10"x1" lag screws are used
Where are you from?
Some new pictures in here too.
I have discovered that the treehouse
does not "get higher" as the trees grow.
The trees at deck level just get thicker. I left some room for growth and I'm glad I did.
So the deck has stayed level even as the two trees grow at slightly different rates.
I got all the wood and supplies needed at Lowes. I used treated wood for the deck and braces. Regular stuff for the rest only because it's a little $$ and things add up pretty fast at the checkout line. At this point I've probably put about $800 into it. I still need to trim up the roof and cover it.
Sign my guestbook and let me know what you think.
Thanks!! And after that check out BRAVENET.COM. Lots of cool
tools and very easy to use. It's FREE!!!
