Now when Scott gets an idea in his head he can't think of anything else.
First he asked me how high he should build it. I said 5 feet high would be good.
Does that look like 5 feet to you?
After Scott put up the foundation, he built the house part in our garage. It made itself at home there for several weeks. Have I mentioned that he has never done anything like this before? The other guy in the photo is Scott's faithful assistant, Sam.
Now it is time for the assembly.
The last wall goes up. This the part when Sam and Scott try to commit suicide. We all closed our eyes. Ultimately they had to enlist the help of a neighbor.
The construction of the stairs. This is the tree house's best feature, in my opinion. This way, if the kids fall, they will only fall six feet at a time instead of twelve. This was our compromise since Scott ignored my height limit.
On this day Scott had Donovan and Sam, and work progressed faster.
The finished product! Can you believe it? The girls promptly named it THE MERMAID TREEHOUSE which absolutely does not make sense, but that is its name.
Now who wants to come and play?
