Comments from Kurt
"I was asked to design and build an addition to an existing tree house on an Island at Pine Lake.
My good friend was told the harsh reality... no. Not unless I can knock down what is there and start from
scratch. He agreed and I went to work.
Instead of a structure tied to the trees, it sits on posts (solid ground) and fits between the trees. I wanted a nice place for his daughter but also to be standing for his grandkids to use. We repositioned the steps for a side entry and reused the slide in a conspicuous tree house fast-exit location.
The interior stayed rustic in appearance but functional as well. The exterior is Weatherproof, of course, with Foundry shake, BP Shingles, custom trim and covered entry.
Although I liked this project and am proud of the product, I would rather be invited back to fish this year."
