Mid-Winter at the Tree House

Lemax does not have any tree houses in their 2013 catalogue. But I wanted one, an "Ultimate Tree House Complex" to make up for the one I never had as a kid. This is really an extension of my "David's Fort" project, but it took on a life of its own.

Snow is thick on the ground as the kids gather to celebrate the golden days of their youth, free of parents and adults.

The main club-house, a thing of great architectural beauty in the eyes of 10 year olds - built with material scavenged from the local tip, of course, as befits a "man's castle"!

The rickety spiral staircase, winding its way up the tree, also never quite got its chain handrails. Oh Well !!??! That's why God made snow!

Obviously "Safety" is for whooses - the rope bridge never did get its chain link handrail that was demanded by visiting parents on threat of closure.
