Christopher + Clint's Tree Fort

Christopher and Clint started building a tree fort 3 - 4 years ago.  Pretty much each year they add something on.  It started out as half the size - where the top meets cut in half.  When they started it was pretty much a floor - no walls or anything.  They put some walls but my Mom had them take it off because it was so ugly - you could see it from the road.  Then, Reid and Clint put some walls up and then Reid helped them make a roof for the first half.  They then made the layout chair on the tree that was part of the tree house, with the help of Blayne.  Then, after a while, they got some wood from my Dad and they made a floor, walls, and a roof for the second half with a little of my Dad's help.  Just recently, they tarred and shingled both sides of the roof. 

A look at their fort from a ways away.

The rope ladder that goes to the inside of the fort.  It is in the middle of the two sides and they have a cover for the door.

Thanks for looking - If you come over feel free to ask to see it in person:) 

Love and God's Peace,
