treehouse 4



These pics were taken in March, before the renovations. Here is PianoGirl, posing at the top. SHe is about 10 ft higher than the top of our house- yes, the treehouse is that high. No, I do not worry too much about them falling out. Don't ask me why- I am usually much more panic-sticken and controlling than this! This is the side facing the house and the backyard.A view from the treehouse of the freeway down the hill at the back of our property. During the summer, the foliage fills out and you can't see anything but the lush trees, but in the winter, I have been able to look out my bedroom window and judge which freeway I should take by how much traffic I see!
Also from the treehouse. You can see our shed there in the middle, and the back porch roof on the right.
Here is the Girl sweeping up in the treehouse. See the cool windows Papa put in?They face the next-door neighbor's yard. They even open. There are only walls on two sides, but there is a roof. I have tried to get some pics of the treehouse from up here, but it was tricky. I may send the camera up there with MonkeyBoy sometime and see if he can get better. Hard to take good photos up there when you are afraid of heights! I hade to climb the rickety ladder to get up there!
That's it for now! Hope you enjoyed the treehouse rennovation pictures. My Dude knows what is important- we haven't remodeled the house yet, but he has beautiful gardens, and a remodeled treehouse! Good priorities.

What a wonderful treehouse. You won't be able to get the kids to come back into the house.

Funny thing is Bridget- sometimes I think *we* use it more than they do!
Dude is planning on being able to use it for a home office/secret hideout when they leave.

Oooh, how fun that you have a treehouse in your backyard! I would have loved to have one of those when I was a kid. What a great place to read a book and still enjoy the outside. :-)
