Tree House Outdoors

Some of you are interested in the progress of the Tree House for Carson.  Last Friday we were able to recruit some heavy lifters to put up the sides on the house atop the platform.  After all was squared, plumbed and measured, we were then able to construct the support and the long header that will define the roof system.  That is now all in place for the rafters, the next project.  You may have seen my post on Monday that was the result of the support for the beam.  It required three hands to hold the support together for the nails, and my index finger got in the way of the hammer!


The sides are up!

This is the condition of my daughter's garage with all the lumber and workshop set up for the construction project.  Good thing she has a big garage.


The header for the rafters is in place.  Next is the rafter boards on each side.  That will take a bit of work and planning.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and a safe and happy celebration of the New Year!

Hi, Linda Kay!

I took a few days off to celebrate Christmas. I guess this will be another few days of celebration, as we have out-of-state guests due on Friday. I also had time to do some much needed reading. I plan to have more book reviews posted the end of January.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Looks like the tree-house is coming right along. Seems like I remember my brother having a tree-house but not like this one. This one will last a good long while. I've seen some online pictures of tree-houses I wouldn't mind living in. They were built for that purpose and I am adventurous.

Happy New Year!

Such a great idea! Every boy or girl should have a tree house! Happy New Year!

What a wonderful project that is Linda Kay. I for one can't wait to see the finished tree house. I always love to look at them when we come across one. Carson must be getting very excited and I am sure appreciates your banged up thumb even more ;)

I hope they enjoy it, but I expect there is much satisfaction to be had from building it. Happy New Year.

Ouch! Sorry about your finger! But lucky kid. My 'treehouse' consisted of a big branch of the white pine tree in the backyard. No roof, no floor. LOL This treehouse will be loved for years to come.

Wow, nice job buddy, eh. We had a tree house too when we were kids, but not quite that elegant. This is a real beaut. Happy New Year.
