getaway from the porch area, a trap door up on the top story and a dumb waiter to haul stuff up to the top but the basic structure is done!!
Here is how you go up: A rope ladder goes to the porch level. (With stabilizing boards behind so that it doesn't swing wildly and make it almost impossible to climb.)
Than up a regular ladder to the inside. (For some reason this picture turned on me and I am to lazy to fix it. )
Once up their you have quite a view. If you look straight down Megan looks this (above) tiny!
Out the front window we have a bird's eye view of our yard. Here comes Granddad across the lawn.
What fun to have a tree fort. We have ideas for furnishings now and hopefully the kids will have a lot of fun playing in it year round! :-) The kids also offered it for Granddad and Nana to live in should they move this way. I'm not sure if they are going to accept the offer or not. :-)
