I got the base and floor done for my grandsons fort/club house.  It’s next to a tree but didn’t have proper tree placement to support one so I built it on logs.  Complete with a trap door. 

Who else is building the treehouse/play fort they never had.  I think cardboard boxes was about the best I ever got.

Looks nice so far Duane.

Have considered a small Crow's Nest in that tree? Maybe an access bridge or something from the fort?

Yes that’s probably what I will do.  There is also a saw horse thingy and a swing.  Going to add random stuff until it’s badass.

At least one has a mask and snorkel.  Need a jr. wetsuit and ones ready to go.  The other one isn’t even 2 yet and the third one is due today but holding out until after my dive tomorrow.

My son and I built something similar last summer for my grand kids.  There's a big redwood tree in their neighbor's back yard that I utilized for the treehouse effect.  Hope this link works;

Nice one jerry.  I am using as much recycled material or wood from our property as I can.

It looks like you have 3 trees there that are pretty close to each other. You could use all three trees as a support system. If the trees are a bit on the smaller side right now, you could add an extra brace from the ground, going up along the side of the tree so its not just the tree supporting the weight, until the tree gets bigger.  It would be a pretty big tree house. But thats even more badass!!
