Last year I built an extension to the kids’ treehouse, more or less in the nick of time given they’re quickly outgrowing the first floor.
So, here’s the starting point, when I climbed up the tree with the children on the established floor below, to carry out the initial ‘survey’.
I don’t remember this very clearly (and it seems rather implausible that we were actually all up there) but the children apparently followed me.
Happily I was able to make most of the platform from the cast offs from our loft conversion or things I’d lifted from a neighbour’s skip. It’s a little hard to show it from the ground as it’s generally screened by the upper branches of the tree, but here it is a little while later.
And the approach to it.
And from the inside:
And finally, the kids actually up there.
