I grew up in a house surrounded on 3 sides by a forest. As a child of about 8 or 9, I remember taking a hammer, nails, and a few boards into the woods to try to create a hangout for me and my friends. I had a small sledge hammer (haha, clearly not the right thing to build any type of structure) so it didn’t pan out too well. I think I got about one step secured – just enough to pull myself up on a branch and sit there. I miss childhood most because of the way your imagination would run wild. You just think you can do anything at that age, and it’s pretty magical. I never ended up with a tree house, but it was a cool place to escape to. I have some pretty amazing memories exploring those trails.
Here’s some eye candy in the form of some amazing tree houses. These creative structures are like a childhood dream come true. Happy Earth Day!
