Grand Designs of The Tree House Variety

Today, was wood work day.

Lots of branch chopping, sanding and measuring, then some hard decisions to be made.
Where to position platforms ? which interesting, twisty piece of wood to use ? everything looked so good.


Finally, decisions made, everything was put away in bags for dealing with later, without the little people being around, we don't want any spoilt surprises.

We are using the wonderful instructions, found here
