To me, childhood dreams, fantasies and treehouses are directly linked.
As a child I always dreamed of owning a tree house, a big one, one where elves could live nearby, high up so that it is all hidden in the leafy branches away from our parents spying eyes. My brother did for a while have a little platform high up in a tree. You had to climb up it with a rope and it was very hard to do, on top of which girls were not allowed. I didn't care though it was to tricky to get up to that tiny little platform.
When I married and had 3 boys, my husband built a treehouse for our 3 sons. It was made of old lumber from our neighbor who built a very nice family room extension on his house. Our boys always played with the girls next door (they grew up like brothers and sisters) and so in this treehouse girls were allowed. Lots of friends also came around and enjoyed that treehouse and a marvelous place to arrange a water fight from, just so long as you had water. When you ran out of water and had to hoist more up with a bucket you stood the chance of getting absolutely drenched by the ground attack.
Longwood Gardens built 3 treehouses to inspire and conjure up our childhood fantasies and hopefully inspire us to build a treehouse for our kids and grandkids...........
