Workin' on the rail...

We had a family project the other day. With the invaluable help of my wife and kids, we were able to build and paint the handrails on the deck. It was a beautiful day and we had a lot of fun with my daughter screwing down the railing and my wife and son painting the rails. here is the result!

Back again

No I haven't been in hibernation since January. I have been occupied by many work and life experiences till now. During the summer, my father passed away after a long illness. I feel that the treehouse is a gift now to my kids so I can show them that I enjoy them as much as I enjoyed my dad.

During the spring I put on the roof with the help of my neighbor and Buddy, Johnathan across the street. we did it without breaking anything and a minimum of bruises. I then crawled up on the roof and laid out the tar paper. It was wobbly up there, so I will install the cedar shingles when i finish installing the siding on the walls.
