a tree(s)house with a view


sabin and her far (that's dad in danish, remember?) worked on her treehouse today. it's actually a tree(s)house, since it incorporates five birch trees (they bled an alarming amount when husband put the bolts into them). it's gonna be so cool when it's done. i'm thinking of moving into it. it will have a pillow-filled chill-out space, a porch, a flagpole (sabin and i are designing her own flag) and a view. what more could a girl ask for? the only drawback is that it's all about three and a half meters in the air and i'm not so keen on heights...

It looks beautiful -- any kid would be thrilled to have it!

I have an entire book of tree houses - most of them built for grownups. Sabin is so lucky to have one of her own. She's also lucky to be able to help making it.

Woah. Completely amazing.

I used to have a tree platform. It was maybe a meter square... Sabins looks to be amazing!

That is so cool. Way to go!

Hello Julie

I can tell Sabin and her far are close. It is nice to see how they share doing things together.

Have a nice day and week!

Best
Tracy :)

I had a treehouse that my dad and I built when I was a girl. It was great.

I did not have my own flag, though. And I have to admit that I am jealous about Sabin having one. Do you suppose it's too late for me to make my own flag now? Perhaps I could fly it from our deck-- which is about as close to a treehouse as an adult can have.

it's never too late for a treehouse. :-) and this will eventually be a house, right now, as lizzi rightly points out, it's just a tree platform. but just you wait!

That sounds awesome! Maybe if you're ever looking to rent it you could consider us, lol. Its nice that Sabin and her dad are getting to do this project together. Something they'll remember for a very long time.

it looks amazing! but i also bleed a bit for the birches... i always wanted a tree house when i was little, with a veranda and where i could serve pancakes (like in astrid lindgren-books) and read and play. never got it (i feel deprived), but i got a cosy playhouse in the woods instead. which was pretty awesome in itself. but still, no treehouse, sabin is indeed a lucky girl!! :)
