Building a Treehouse at John's Sanctuary!

  • Dec 1, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • John Leipold's Sanctuary

Ok! You wanted to learn how to build and help create something wonderful? Now your chance!

Now that we have the perfect spot selected for John's treehouse, let's get to it! We will be designing, planning, prepping, and building this beautiful structure over the months to come. (Although it can change, the photo below is roughly the design we have in mind... similarly, there's a "tripod" of large trees. So the enclosure will be inside the trees with decking around the outside of the trees.)

We've decided the schedule will be every other Sunday afternoon until it's completed. The next work meetings will be December 1st and 15th. Then we will resume on January... schedule TBD.

NOTE: THIS PROJECT IS TEMPORARILY REPLACING OUR REGULAR CLASSROOM MEETINGS, HOWEVER CHECK BACK HERE FOR OTHER WORKSHOPS, TOURS, AND SUCH BEING OFFERED DURING THE TREEHOUSE BUILD

Please bring your favorite treehouse ideas. Photos, DVDs, plans... whatever you have. If you could bring a dvd we can watch it. Anything related to treehouses would be great! If you know about trees or treehouses, please come and share your knowledge! This is meant to be a fun and creative learning and teaching experience.

If you have access to tools you can loan for the project, let us know. Suggestions encouraged!

Even if you don't want to participate in the physical work, feel free to join us to check out our progress and offer your ideas and moral support! We'd love to see you there!

FOR DIRECTIONS TO JOHN'S please email me and I will send directions.
