Tree House

Mr. Non-Builder here, who is fortunate to make a living with his mouth instead of his hands, actually built a tree house for the kids this past weekend.

The project started long ago with the persistent pestering of my daughter Valerie (pictured in center). For months, she begged for a tree house. When she found a free pile of old barn wood, the project was underway.

I did get some much needed help! Thanks to Jerome (for wood), Jeff (for circular saw and level), Jake (for 4 1/2 hours of help and advise), and Mark at Rice County Builders (for help and advise on the ladder).

Yes, I am proud of myself. And the kids are excited.

Beware of falling hammers when standing under a treehouse. (childhood memory for Ted)

I'm sure they'll have great memories in it, but none as cool as the memory of seeing it built by Dad! Great job, Ted!
