Tree House Wins Reclaimed ContestComments (0)
Smith’s fond memories of his childhood tree house inspired him to build a
special tree house for his son and daughter. He chose three trees in his yard
that are located in a triangle for the “Our Reclaimed TreeHouse” location. He
built the outside frame from new treated wood for safety, but used wood from an
old deck and other reclaimed materials for most of the tree house structure.
