I am getting rid of my scrap wood to make room for more. The kids wanted a tree house- so I am giving them a “house on a tree” I needed to get rid of an old mulberry tree and re-used the limbs for the house. There are old cabinet doors, oak, walnut, cherry, alder used as siding.It is not finished but needed to share…. more to come…....

I think that adults should build and use tree houses, they can’t be for just kids, can they?

I am making it “Adult” friendly ….. the walls are 7.5’ tall making the peak 19’ off the ground. The house is 8×8 and the deck is 12×12 so it gives me a 4’ porch on two sides.
