Tree House!

One of the things we did whilst up in the mountains of Nagano was to build a Tree House! We didn't actually finish it because we were lacking planks and alike to floor it with and make walls from, but we got the basic structure laid out which was rather fun!

Structure so far…

The basic structure of the building is this pentagon coming out from the tree. The house part will then be constructed on this and around the trunk of the tree.

We had to cut several paths into the mountainside so that we could more easily carry up the rather heavy logs from trees that we were felling a little further down the slope.

Hand cut path…

Some very neat steps too which were Jessica's handiwork!

The timber yard…

Thanks for showing the whole construction crew on the structure. The top photo made me wonder if that would be strong enough to hold a couple of children. Looked like a fun project.
