We had tree houses, forts, and some underground mine/cave things that in retrospect were definitely the most dangerous of all.I had a tree house as a kid. I survived.
Well, less a house and more a pallet stuck in a tree
Hey, at least I remembered to put two nails in most of the sticks I nailed to the tree as a ladder. I think.
I wouldn't of gotten out of bed to build that for 16k, let alone send a crew from DC.The Washington DC builder/jackass who built it for them knew perfectly well that it wasn't legal when he built it. And I'd have some sympathy for the owner, but I'd bet a dollar that she got turned down by at least 5 local builders who told her exactly that.
A neighbor of ours built a small treehouse in their front yard, and made the mistake of asking me what I thought of it. Not liking them very much, I gave them my opinion. So for about a week, it seemed like they'd keep an eye out for me, and if I was out in front they'd all run outside and have a giant crap-load of fun with their tree-house. Then one day a litigator who lives on the street told them what he thought about it, and they had it taken down the next day.
That news story ends with some happy bit about the county working with her; what's going to happen is that they'll say, "We have no problem with you having a tree house. It's a wonderful tribute to your husband. It only needs to comply with our planning and building codes - here's a copy, we look forward to reviewing the plans."
Steve, perhaps you should take a look at pressure-treated lumber - you might find it useful for your deck business, too. You're welcome, I'm always glad to help a fellow tradesman.Don't bugs live in trees. How do you stop the place from being bug free when the tree house is made out of wood and the bugs are in the tree to eat the wood?
Wouldn't want my bed in there
Really!!!!Steve, perhaps you should take a look at pressure-treated lumber - you might find it useful for your deck business, too. You're welcome, I'm always glad to help a fellow tradesman.
