(Post #2 Today- our workshop schedule and list of events is below). Here’s the prefab- build n’ drag treehouse I built for my brother Dustin, as a surprise for his 30th birthday up in the woods of VT on our 10 acre camp. I built the structure in a single day back at my home in Massachusetts, and then carted the pieces four hours north to Vermont, where my cousin Neil and I assembled most of this in a single evening. The total cost was around $250.00 or so, but with some backbreaking work, and with having to haul the materials down a quarter mile of rugged trails- while running a fever (you can hear it in my voice and breathing at times). The supporting cradle/base was made from pressure treated wood I found on the ride up- when I spotted someone tearing down their deck and leaving all the wood for the taking/trashing- talk about perfect timing (it saved me at least another $100 or more in wood).
|Dustin, his wife, and their baby all slept in here during a monstrous storm- and not a single drop of wetness got within.|
We also shot a mini-video on this, which I’ll have up real soon…. on my youtube channel www.youtube.com/relaxshacksDOTcom
Happy birthday Dustin!
