An indoor “tree house” built in my grandsons play room. Just 4’ off the floor, 4’ tall, 4’ deep and 10’ long.

Very cool. When we bought our present home the previous seller had something similar, but the upper was the part of a bunk bed.

and as he gets older and outgrows it, there will be a built in place to store all of the junk that boys tend to collect. Seems to be years of enjoyment. Then, if he has a little brother or sister, maybe he can rent a room to them?

My grandson will be 6 July 16th. His llittle sister will be 2 December 21st. She runs up the latter goes down the slide over and over again. I believe they will get many years use out of it before they out grow it.

Thanks for all your comments.

Its like a play pen, and great that it fits inside tree house.. great architectural design. The door is simply small which I think custom made door from http://caldwells.com/ will fit to that.

Have your say...
