Today, while Alex was out of the house, I used the power tools! I broke out the circular saw, the jig saw, and the chain saw! When he got home, the floor of the treehouse was done.

The tree comes up through the floor in two places.

Here you can see the triangular shape of the floor from the top side.

Now that we are up in the tree, I can see loads of patterns on the bark. I hear the little guy who makes these holes every morning. I never manage to catch sight of him, but at our bird feeder we get downy woodpeckers, yellow bellied sapsuckers, and red headed woodpeckers so I'm assuming they are all pecking away out here.

Awesome! This is in our yard's future as well.

I also love your comments on sustainable living in an earlier post.

I always wanted a treehouse. Instead I just climbed a lot of trees.

So cool. I always wanted a tree house and I am very impressed with your carpentry skills! The woodpecker holes are delightful!
