Tree House!!!

This tree house was yet again another labor of love from Jordan! And sheer creativity and INSANE construction skills! When Jordan had this idea to build a tree house in the back yard I had NO IDEA it would be to this magnitude! The really crazy part is that he thought of this all by himself, lots of people who have seen it have asked if it was a package he bought... nope! Designed and constructed by builder man Jordan ;)

Jordan has said it was a project where he bit of more than he could chew. It took countless hours, and most of those hours were right after we had Marli. So he was helping me, working, and trying to finish the tree house!

Here are some pictures of the tree house project! Avery was Jordan's little helper, she spent lots of time out there with him while I was inside with Marli. He got her some little tools and she just loved being out there with Dad.


















The Finished Product!






















The amazing thing is the deals that he got on everything. The slides were off kijiji, Tube slide for $200 and the one underneath for $50. Most of the wood he got for free at this place pat Nisku. It was raw natural cedar and maple, so he even planed them down to show the nice wood grain and then stained it all! Pretty incredible!
