Turns out the kiddos have talked Daddy into starting the construction...pronto!!
Only thing is (and they're not aware of this), is Mr. Wonderful is a perfectionist...and perfectionist that he is, things always have to be...well, perfect! And, to achieve said perfection, he always...takes...a...long...time...to...complete...projects!
Unbeknownst to Mr. Wonderful, I've decided to chronicle the evolution of the treehouse, and today, my friends, is Day 1.
Funny thing 'bout treehouses, tho'...usually they go in trees...turns out our trees like to fall down. In the still of the night. Yup, high winds, heavy snows...they don't touch our trees...apparently our trees have minds of their own and "ain't no wimpy wind gonna take me down" personalities, you know...if trees had personalities (who am I to judge? Maybe they do?!!). So, due to this treefallingdown-ed-ness we're putting our treehouse on stilts (Mr. Wonderful likes to call them posts, I prefer stilt)...nearby some trees ('cuz somehow that makes us feel better...rather than the treehouse falling down with a tree, it'll just get smashed by a tree).
Oh, but I digress...and here is the photographic documentation of TreeHouse building, Day 1!
