PROJECT: "Tree" House 06

Now we're getting somewhere!

Got the roof on (thank you, local Feecycle for the shingles).

That cool extra cheap window fits the angle almost perfectly and the other two reclaimed windows are in and working fine. We tried to add some "soffit" vents above the big window, but they really stick out without paint...

Still to do:
  • Trim
  • Floor
  • Ladder
  • Window "hardware"
  • Decking
  • Painting
  • Fold down desk
(and probably a few other things I've missed)

The kids love it, but honestly, they haven't really been all that interested in helping build it. They are more than happy to use it, but they just don't seem interested in the process. I'm sure there's something I could do differently to help coax them into getting involved, though it may be too late by this point.


  1. I love this, in fact, I had to go back and catch up on it. What a great project, whether the kids were interested in helping or not, LOL.

  2. Thanks for the kind words! The pumpkins are going crazy and they've taken over the end where the door is so we're resorting to climbing in through the front window -- makes it harder to get to work on the interior!
