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.
