Can you tell what's taking shape?
the principal builder and his second-in-command call it the "pirates nest...argh".
i call it a room with a view or...a sanctuary....or a platform for a zip line...or a way to spin around and induce vertigo...or... "hey, ollie does the tree house count as increasing our square footage and maximizing the value of our home?"

oh, my kids have been begging for one of these since birth, sadly there is no tree that could accommodate it...

Oh -Oh - Oh - OH I am SO JEALOUS. I always longed for a real, honest to goodness tree house. This is the stuff of my childhood fantasies. I AM SO JEALOUS. Not for my kids - for me. WOW.

mirjam,
well, your kids could borrow our leafy treetop! =) but come to think of it we'd have to strap them into full body harnesses and put them on belay. when you see how high off the ground it is you'll know why.

Sue,
we have an endless amount of salvaged wood! i think i'm successfully talking the builders into doing three stories plus a loft! oh and a barbeque patio up there! but i'm helping out! and you would not be jealous of the splinters.=( yowzers!
