Yep, you heard me, treehouse! Pure fun for the garden…and I don’t know if you’ve seen the new show on treehouses, but they aren’t just for kids anymore. There are even treehouse cabins for rent for us grown ups! In other words, society is giving us permission to think like kids for awhile. And thats always a good thing… So whether you want some childhood inspired daydreams, or actually want to build one of these “high in the sky” funhouses, we have it here. So DIY treehouses ahoy!
