Fabulous Tree houses Inside And Out

Tree houses aren't what they used to be.  For one, they used to sit in trees!  Hence the name, "tree house!"  As a kid, I used to envy those who had large back yards, filled with trees where someone always managed to build a make-shift tree house.  We would pile all of our good junk in them, and spend hours of our days playing, eating, and dreaming from inside their wooden walls!  Today, you're more than likely to find a tree house in the middle of a park, within the playground equipment, overlooking a street with cars.  Loses a little something in the translation, but it stills remains a special place to hide, play peek-a-boo, and pretend!
Best regards,
P.S.  Fill us in on some wonderful memories from your childhood experiences in treehouses.

  1. My sister and I created playhouses under trees. The branches provided shade, and the roots helped to demarcate the rooms. We would finish creating the house by using sticks to define where the walls were. We might have a table or chair to drag into the house, but most of the furniture, just like the walls, was imaginary.
