Treehouse with Castle Tower, Pagoda Shelter and Open Platform
Built amongst the trees in this lovely garden this treehouse and tower structure has a magical and otherworldly feel, providing the ideal setting for lots of adventurous play.
The treehouse platform sits at the far left of the structure and is set 2ft above the ground.
The treehouse has a central door with diamond shaped cut out. There are two non-opening glazed windows to the front and one window in both the left and right hand side of the structure.
Internally there is a folding table and two benches, providing the ideal space for planning campaigns and a doorbell outside means that adults must make their presence known before entering the treehouse.
A low staircase from the ground leads to the platform with the treehouse sitting to the rear and space to the fore providing the access to a walkway via another staircase. There is a pulley system with basket at the corner of the staircase, an essential means for taking supplies (or lunch) up to the structure
The walkway is 4ft above the ground and leads to the central tower platform.
This central platform is 5ft square and has castle style tower walls with an open octagonal topped door to the front two castle style slit windows to the back. There is a climbing wall with knotted rope affixed to the octagonal topped entrance.
The walkway then leads to another 5ft square platform with a pagoda style shelter with open sides. The roof of the shelter is finished with cedar shingles to match the main treehouse. A bell sits in this platform and may be sounded to warn of any intruders.
The walkway then leads to the final platform that is set at 5ft, a foot higher than the other platforms, from the ground. This open platform provides the ideal lookout spot and has a firemans pole attached should a speedy exit be necessary. The platform also includes a "secret" access point to the ground with rope ladder so invaders can never be sure which escape route may be used!
A hanging swing seat is attached under this platform to provide a shady spot when resting between games.
