The tree house

Project by printman posted 05-12-2009 08:30 PM 3949 views 4 times favorited 9 comments Add to Favorites Watch

The kids climbed all the trees in the yard. finally I got the idea to make a tree house that could be moved to the new house in a year. This is what I came up with. I went to Rainbow and took some pictures because theirs comes apart in sections. They had some good ideas. What do you think?

Looks great, and I don’t think the kids mind it’s not a “Rainbow”.

Good job, where did you get your hardware? was it expensive?

Thanks for commenting tomakazi. Most of the hardware came form one of the big box stores. They probably both carry it now. It was more expensive that the cheap junk but well worth it. A little grease once a season and no squeaks plus smooth as glass. The swings, including the round one, came from our friends at Rainbow but their slides were way up there so I opted for the one at Homedepot. I wish I would have sprung for the Rainbow one.

Great project printman!
Your kids are probably proud that you spent the time to build it, rather than just putting together something out of the box. Custom is better in my opinion.

Great work printman, I like the valleys and the 3rd gable as opposed to a normal boring straight roof.
