Tree House

Hey, this is Kent writing today. It has been a while since we have updated our tree house progress so some of the details of this day might slip my mind. Today’s main goal was to fit the extremely tricky, oddly shaped floor piece that fits around the tree. Most of the day’s progress was on paper as John and I measured and remeasured the area that needed to accept the floor.

We decided the best way to transcribe the shape of the tree and all the necessary cutouts to the plywood would be to use a series of measurements every 6 inches. We marked those measurements to the plywood and just sort of connected the dots. I am proud to say we fit the piece snugly around the tree with only a few minor adjustments to our original cuts.

Once that section of floor was up the kids FINALLY had a chance to climb into the thee house for the first time. Needless to say they were excited to see the view from up there.
