Treehouse Part 4

So back to the treehouse.  So we had glued in the top platform and decided it was way too far off the ground for a ladder to reach.  The length it was already caused it twist under our model child.  So we added a lower platform and fasten the bottom of the ladder to it.  Junior also decided that safety rails were a must so we added those as well.   We tied a strip of cloth beside the bottom platform as a climbing rope from the ground.

Junior had discovered the sewing machine just before the treehouse project.   I showed him how to make simple, tiny pillows and he measured fabric against our treehouse doll and sewed several for the treehouse on his own.

We had just done a scout craft with melty beads and we still had them at the house, so Junior decided the treehouse needed a melty bead TV set.
