the 2012 tree fort building season is now in session! this is exciting stuff, folks. next up on the agenda is finishing the roof framing and beginning the porch railing. we'll be bouncing between the two as we need help and longer chunks of time for the framing, meaning weekends. in the evenings (especially during this crazy warm weather we are having in illinois), jesse will be installing posts for the railings.
we spent some time picking materials over the weekend. boy was that fun. siding and shingles and such make this mama happy. the prices maybe not so much. but vacations are not really an option for our family at this point in our journey with asperger's and spd-times-two. i have been lovingly told that this might be the way of things for quite some time. not only does the investment of building a tree fort give us the neat opportunity to work and learn together, but enjoying the fruit of diy labor in our own backyard is truly a gift.
