Build a Tree House

A small space didn't keep us from building a tree house! See how we made the most of our yard to create a tree house filled with everything a child dreams of.
The tree house is nestled around our cypress tree. It includes a ladder, slide and bucket/pulley.
We incorporated the beauty of our tree into this house!
Small details like these copper caps please both function and design.
The tree house was built without 'plans'. It was dreamed up by our daughters and then my husband brought it to life. Building the tree house was a family project and now we can all enjoy it together. To see more of our house, pop on over to the blog!

    How wonderful! I'm sure your girls love it. My Daddy and I built one (enclosed) tree house the summer my Mom suddenly passed away. It helped us both through a very rough time and my son and daughter and their friends enjoyed many days and nights in that thing. I love how yours is shaded by the wonderful tree. Absolutely delightful for your girls and their friends.

    How so sweet, wish we could have done something like this- that is the drawback about growing up in a military family.
