Welcome to Treehouse Girl - Scarlett aged 9 and 1 month

I hope you will like what I am up to.  I got a building book, a pile of wood, some rope and a bean bag for my birthday and I am going to build myself a treehouse.  I like to be outside all the time so it is perfect for me, I need somewhere to escape to so I can write poems, read books and draw pictures.  I like the idea of having some company and everyone says I have a good imagination so I am hoping I am as lucky a Lucy in my favourite book, Lob and I will never feel lonely.  This is me reading - I do that alot!

First of all I drew a plan of what I wanted in my treehouse... 

Then I needed to work out where to put it - I asked dad because he knows about that kind of thing and we decided between the three damson trees where the sun sets.  Here is my birds eye view

Then my Great Uncle Maurice gave me lots more wood, so I can make it bigger and windows and a little door.  So Dad and I put all the ideas together and came up with a plan - this is dads picture of the final idea, I think it is really good.

We started by building the base - it takes alot of wood and it was hard to saw it

I look like I am going to have an accident here but it was ok and we managed to get it done in one weekend and it looks like this...

Then we made the sign - it was great fun and I had lots of help from Bertie and Connie and our friends Neith and Gabriel  - I love it.

Be back soon x THG
