Back in June, I asked Kaia what she wanted for her birthday. She went through a few ideas before settling on a tree house. “Yes!” I thought. “We definitely need one of those on the land!!” And so the construction began:
Leif, as always, was a fabulous construction helper!
There was a lot of excitement when the platform was finally done! (They don’t look excited, do they? It had been a long day of construction, with lots of mosquitoes.)
The house is shaped like an H surrounding two large trees.
The siding was made out of donated tin roof and lap siding. It created a fabulous mash of colors and personality.
It took a while, but thanks to the help of our family, we are pretty much done! A rope ladder and pully system are planned for the near future. But, Kaia was able to move in today and is looking forward to some quiet time by herself. (We’ll see what her little brother has to say about that!)
