It's that time again! To see more Show and Tells, go to Canadagirl. This week I am going to show what my wonderful husband built for the children. He spent last weekend building them a tree house. The kids have wanted a tree house for a long time. We have a huge Southern Magnolia tree in our front yard that the kids love to climb. It provides such wonderful shade that, if the kids play under it, they do not need sunscreen in the summer.
My dh mostly used left-over wood from the basement! Hurray!! This was a win-win situation. I got the basement a bit more cleaned out; my dh got to work with his hands after a long week of paperwork; and the kids got a new secret world to make up a hundred stories in. The tree house is a platform 63 inches off the ground with railings and homemade ladder. All four kids can play up in it at the same time. Tom Sawyer and the others are in Heaven up there!
The view when on your back looking up in the tree house.
