The Play House in Trinity Park


This week we did a special project to a child's birthday. He wanted a tree house but they did not have any trees to build it on. So we built a play house about 6 foot off the ground. The house is 4ft x 6ft and the porch is 2ft x 6ft. Talk about excited kids!

We were going to have two small storm windows, but could not find any small enough to look right and we worried that large glass windows might be a safety hazard. So I built these three little wood windows with latching shutters (no glass). The shutters have a bar in the middle so the kids can not climb out. Funny the stain they picked out is the same colors at our house!

The decking, ladder rungs and railing pickets were all left over scraps from a recent project. This project took two of us 4 1/2 days to build and paint.

Good stuff and mighty impressive! My sister and her husband built something similar for their two boys. Apparently it's now stuffed with Nerf guns, water guns, and balloons for water bombs. I wonder what the boys have planned...

I have enjoyed catching up with you this afternoon. The play house is cute. My husband built a two story play house for our daughter for her 7th birthday in 1985. She loved it!
I have enjoyed all your bee news.
It has been the warmest winter into spring I can remember.
Your garden carrots look delicious!
