Every kid seems to have two wishes: a tree house and a secret passage way. Or is it just my kids? Turns out we live in the desert and trees are hard to come by. Our solution? Build a tree house in the house. Why not!? This is one of those projects that has simmered and simmered in my mind trying to think of the perfect way to build the thing until one day I’m driving around and I see this work of art:
And I realized, a perfect tree house would defeat the purpose of a tree house. The stuff our parents built and played in was a hodge podge of left over wood and their own creations, crooked construction and messy paint. So, I set the perfect aside and dove in. The only things our tree house really needs to be is safe and fun. I think I can live up to both. Stay tuned for the boys’ treehouse. I’m so excited!
