Day in the Life of a Classic Treehouse

Classic-Treehouse-2Let’s take a peek at a day in the life of a Classic Treehouse:

As dawn breaks over the horizon, the treehouse is filled with the sounds of birds chirping out their good morning songs as a squirrel scurries by. The sun moves higher in the sky; two pajama-clad children appear and clamber up onto the deck.

front-doorWith their backs against the rough tree trunk, the children chatter about their plans to invite their classmates over for an epic treehouse battle. They fall silent momentarily when a butterfly flutters by the girl’s face, almost landing on her nose.

Drop-Table-ChairsThen a woman appears at the bottom of the ladder and calls the children in for lunch. “Aww, Mom, can’t we eat out here?” After a moments hesitation, the woman is gone and the children set up the drop-leaf table and stools with grins on their faces. They scurry off only to reappear with turkey sandwiches and apples in hand.

Rope-n-Rung-LadderBack to playing! The boy is halfway up the hanging rope-n-rung ladder when there is a shout from next door. It’s the neighbors, asking to come over and play. Since the arrival of the Classic Treehouse, this backyard has been a focal point for the kids on the block.

Provisions are hoisted up on the pulley bucket while secret passwords are whispered into the peephole. When growling tummies and grown-up voices signal dinnertime, the children leave reluctantly with plans to resume the game tomorrow. Darkness creeps slowly into the branches as the birds bed down in the growing silence.
