Wanna See the Beach House Part I
Wanna See the Beach House Part II
Joining Cari and all the others who enjoy sticking to the theme for Theme Thursday: Shadows!
Which is a perfect opportunity to brag about our Totally Kick-Ass Tree House, which is also probably the World's Most Unsafe Tree House, Don't Let Your Kids Play Here! (Choose your own title!)
Botanists, please weigh in.
Even without touching them with a nail, they are pretty fantastic climbing trees.
But do you think these two could resist?
The catch is that we have all been busy lately (like we ever haven't been)and we don't feel like sinking any more money into this house we may only be in for a short time. Luckily, we had a bit of building materials ourselves, like a slide and a giant rope, and found a horde of goods under the house.
So this is a spend absolutely nothing, completed in about three hours tree house. Keep that in mind when judging Obi's skilz.
I have no idea what their plan in with the rope. Weird. Why don't they just let it hang down?
Well, there is this, I guess.
And this. Please note Isaac did start out fully clothed (for once.)
All the kids helped. Doesn't it look totally safe? And clean? Totally.
Tarzan helped for about 45 seconds.
Until he got a text. Bye Brother!
Basically it is just a platform, nudged into the main crook of the tree. The dog just LOVES that they added a pulley!

With another little platform for the slide.
A too steep and dangerous slide! (That gwina hafta be fixed.)
They cleverly built steps for the ladder by sawing down and tying together some bamboo poles found under the house. Pretty cool! Yes, I absolutely know every good mother is cringing just looking at all these feet. That's what separates us, darlings.
And then they raised that darn rope. I really don't get it. Really. Even me.
View looking up from the platform. Oh my gosh, look at all the shadow, I think I'll link this up with Donaldson!
