A forest flat

So I’m driving down the road this morning, just minding my own business, when I glance off to the right side of the street – and I really can’t believe my eyes.

I actually turn my car around, circle back one block, and pull over.  I literally get out of my car, and walk across the street to get a better look.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Wow.

Hopefully you can tell from the picture: this tree house is bigger than the actual house it ‘belongs’ to.  Amazing.

I hope the kids who enjoy(ed?) that tree house really understand how truly special their parents are.  That’s a big ol’ expression of love, right there.  And it’s pretty permanent, too.  It’s like a tattoo for the yard.

{And the visual that popped into my brain as that last sentence flowed from my fingers *totally* just made me smile.  Awesome.}

Stef

P.S.  Here’s a picture of the amazing hangout from the winter, when the tree is bare of its’ leaves – and you can see all of the tree house.

      • Pass them on to whoever you feel deserves them!
        Usually, you’re supposed to say 7 unknown facts about yourself, (which I didn’t do this time) but I DID do the first time I had an award. Then some blogs say pass to 10 people, some say 15, but I say pass to however many you feel like! 🙂

    Absolutely amazing tree house – I’ve never seen anything like it in my life! Those kids are sure lucky to have parents who love them so much to do this for them – definitely a labour of love!

      I, too, have never seen anything like it before. I can’t begin to imagine how much time/effort/skill/money/etc. went in to building it!

      Ruth, I have never seen an episode of Swiss Family Robinson, nor do I even know what the show was about. I could Google it, I suppose….It was a little before my time.

      I have never heard of the film “Coast” – so I looked it up on IMDB. Is it a 10 minute short from last year?

      Yes, the people who build this amazing abode had no only vision, but effort to back it up. Pretty incredible.
