Tarp roof for the Tree House

The treehouse had gone a long time uncovered, and the kids were getting a bit bored with the same old thing out there.  I added a tarp roof this weekend and now everyone is enjoying this play area again.  It does feel a lot more cozy up there now.

Now, a review, for those of you who arrived late to class….

Two years ago I decided to build the kids a tree house in the back yard:

Then, literally the next week, the tree had a big issue:

So then the JUST-BUILT tree house had to be completely disassembled:

Then the tree was professionally removed and the “tree house” was reassembled without it’s center support.

And that’s how it looked for about two years now.  It’s nice to finally give it a roof:


Excellent tree house books:

    I love it and so do the kids!


  2. Wow – the roof looks great. I love the idea of a tarp for a roof, rather than a metal or wood one. Takes me back to my childhood, although our tree house definitely did not look so nice.


  3. Now they’ll be able to enjoy it without the sun beating down.
