~The Best Treehouse Ever~

I have posted about my daughter's treehouse before, but never the inside!  So let's take a look at the best treehouse ever!  The treehouse was featured in a local magazine! WOW! 
My husband and I built this huge treehouse (Well, he did most all of the work).  It cost about the same as one of those big jungle gyms you see.  Our yard is small, so the jungle gym would have taken up to much space.  We decided to build up and take up less room in our yard.

This is the back view!  My daughter loves to swing!


We decided the inside needed to be painted, so I enlisted the help of my sister Lynette over at Lynette's L.A.M. Blog



Emily drew the girl!

All of us had a really good time painting the inside of the treehouse!  We went crazy with the paint and paint colors.


We decided to put our hand prints on one section! 

Lynette painted this section!  Isn't she a good artist?


Sorry, I don't have any before and during pictures!  I know I took them, but can seem to find them.

Emily and her friends love this treehouse!  Steve's friends will ask him if they can come over and play!!!

Holy crow! That really is an awesome treehouse! :)

We have a huge tree in the middle of our yard that would be perfect for this. Can we set up a play date with your husband? Maybe he should start a tree house business! He did a great job.

That is a way cool house! I would have loved that when I was a kid (I still would love it as an adult...but it would be so special to have as a kid, lol)!

Chris said...

W.O.W. my children would love this tree house. It is the best I've ever seen. Great job...especially to your husband.

Kenzie said...

Ohhhh, I think that is every little girl's dream - it was mine. Who wouldn't love to have a special retreat like that? Can I come to play? Great job!!

Katie said...

Wow! I wish I could do something like that. First I need to get a tree..then the courage. It looks great and your daughter is going to have some many memories there.

Stephanie Lynn said...

This is super cool! I just love how the tree is in the middle. Amazing job and I'm sure your little one is in love! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! ~ Stephanie Lynn

I think I could live there! :) That is so awesome, we, unfortunately, have one of those huge playground things that takes up half our backyard! left you some love over at the craft monkey!

Heather said...

Sandy said...

Whow! My kids would have love it..
heck, "I would have loved it"....
Also,, really like the Murals inside...
Nice!!

Kathryn said...

It is fabulous!

Your kids are lucky to have such crafty and creative parents. Anyone could have paid someone to put up a pre-fab jungle gym, but what makes your so special is that you did it all yourselves. I am sure you kids will create many wonderful memories in it.
