Under Construction

This beautiful Los Angeles structure is made up of a two-story playhouse, a climbing tower and a deck area, each connected to the other by a different type of bridge. With a rich, earthy palette including powder blue, frog green, champagne, and shadow, this project will complement its natural surroundings.
As always, the first step is fabrication in our South San Francisco shop. ┬áHere, Luis, Jose, and Henry grind each part smooth to protect little fingers from scrapes or splinters. Here, Marco constructs one of the angled roofs. Teamwork is essential to safely and efficiently building each part of the structure. As you can see, each component is hand-crafted to meet the exact specifications of Barbara’s design.While Barbara still designs every structure herself, she no longer builds each one herself and instead oversees the building, staining, and installation, along with problem-solving as issues arise. Today, Barbara says, “Now I see myself more as the conductor of an orchestra full of skilled builders.” However, she does still do the elaborate animal carvings and the custom rope weavings!
