Darrin & I did some research and designed a plan after looking at several tree houses on Pinterest. We wanted it to be sturdy, simple, and be able to add onto it in the future. We did some measurements and laid out a rough plan on Thursday night.
Darrin and his dad set the posts in concrete on Friday. Then, we started working on the floor on Saturday morning. Darrin & his dad did most of the work on Saturday. Darrin did an excellent job designing it & they both did a great job building it. I worked in the house most of the morning and then helped them outside for the rest of the day.
Granny helped rake the yard and occupy Miles some too. He was so happy to have Granny & Pa here all day. He was waiting for them to arrive bright & early. We enjoyed spending time with them too. We just don't get to do that very often.
We starting getting a little delirious towards the end of the day. We didn't wrap things up until 9pm. We were having to use a flash light to make cuts and to drill. I'm sure our neighbors were thrilled with us.
Darrin, Miles and I worked again today...
...until it was finished. As soon as everything was cleaned up, we all went inside and took showers. Miles has been outside with us for the last two days. He wasn't even in the mood to play with it when we were done. I couldn't blame him.
After dinner, he caught his second wind and played in it for a while with the neighbors.
It was a lot of work, especially for just 3 days, but I think he's going to have lots of fun in it. He loves to be outside and we'll do whatever we can to foster that. I'll be glad to go to work tomorrow for a break!
