‘Can you build a treehouse in Trevor for our grandchildren?’
I was somewhat confused by my client’s request, until I realised Trevor was in fact a much loved 350 year old oak tree.
Trevor has provided a fabulous shady spot for people to relax on warm summer days for generations. No doubt hundreds of children have spent hours climbing his strong limbs for views across the fields or to see who was coming, and now we at High Life Treehouses have been given the privileged opportunity to build this fabulous structure and enhance the appreciation of this friendly giant even further.
Supported on stilts (no fixings into Trevor would ever be allowed), this fine treehouse is clad with wayney edge boards and it has a cedar shingle roof. It boasts two slides, two decks, a fireman’s pole, a rope bridge, swings, a cargo net and a climbing wall. There were grandchildren of all shapes and sizes to consider, and much time was spent getting the design just right!
The project was a huge success, but perhaps the best thing about it is the upper level inside the treehouse, making it the perfect place for over night stays.
I am told that even grand dad is planning to sleep out in the treehouse one night under Trevor’s trustworthy and ever watchful gaze!
I am not entirely convinced that this treehouse is for the grandchildren at all…
