So basically, one mighty tree and a lot of hard work goes into making a beautiful tree house. For captainpsp, there was one challenge – he didn’t have a strong enough tree to build it into a tree house. 

He had to work with the playset from which he made the treehouse. He had got this old playset from  CL. He had to dismantle it, bring it home and pressure wash. Here are the different shots of the playset –

Interestingly, the only entrance is from their patio through that tunnel! How very creative is that. For now, only padding, carpet and painting remains to finish this masterpiece.
