My Dream Playhouse


In reality, Noah and I will probably never own a playhouse nearly as cool as either of these, but we like to dream. Noah has the amazing ability to make anything (like our 1000 square foot addition on the house we're currently selling), so if he puts his mind to it, we could have something similar one day.

The first picture is of a tree house that is actually available at Sam's Club for a mere $5,520. The pirate ship is available for use at some theme park, so we won't be buying it any time soon. My dream is to have Noah make a Pirate ship playhouse similar to the picture (minus the pool) but with Monkey bars, swings and maybe a rock climbing wall at one end. Better yet, if we did have a pool, what would be cooler than a diving board for the plank?

This is not nearly ambitious enough. Haven't you been to Disneyland? The treehouse should take up TWO trees and must have hanging vines for Tarzan-ish swinging. There should be a spiral of stairs leading up to the treehouse and the house itself needs to be equipped with a small organ, some method of food preparation, and lots of food.

I'll talk to Noah and see what I can do. He does however want to put in electricity and plumbing which I think is a little over the top, but then again he's building it!

Would that be airplane-style plumbing? Would it be a lovely toilet with a direct outlet to the ground beneath?

I'm hoping we can do without the toilet completely and just have a sink or something, even that though is too much I think.
