JP took off work last week to work on the next big Poplar Ridge project with my Dad: building a tree house for the girls. It ended up being a bit larger of a project than any of us anticipated, and it rained most of the week - which was good for our thirsty well, but not so good for being in a tree. JP drove in to the lumber or hardware store at least once daily for additional supplies, and Lowe's delivered a large pile of wood and insulation on Monday.
Step 1: Pick out your trees. These 2 trees, one hickory and one probable ash, are in our side yard, and already serve as shade over our hammock.
Step 2: Build the house in 2 sections under the barn lean-to because of rain. They even insulated and began attaching the interior walls while these were on the ground.
Step 3: Build the roof panels and deck panels under the garage lean-to because of continued rain.
Step 4: On the first sunny day, drill holes for the massive bolts.
Step 5: Tighten the massive bolts...it will take several people. L even helped out.
