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 will fit to that.

Have your say...
