Treehouse with series of walkways leading to a Castle Tower
Constructed specifically to provide an active toddler with a safe area to play and explore that will continue to provide challenges and interest as he gets older.
The treehouse which sits on a 2ft high platform is insulated and plywood lined, it has a standard door with a diamond shape cut out and two non-opening windows to the front with an additional window on both sides to ensure plenty of light can get into the treehouse and play can continue whatever the weather.
There are three access staircases that lead onto different points of the play structure. The most obvious is a staircase to the front of the treehouse platform but there are two staircases to the rear also; one on the right hand side of the treehouse platform and one that leads onto the bridge linking the treehouse platform to an open platform in the middle of the structure. These different access points add to the potential for active and adventurous play as they create different possibilities for circuits around the platforms.
On the left hand side of the tree house platform a step leads to a small bridge or walkway which steps up to the open play platform, measuring 9ft x 6ft, which then steps up to another walkway, with a sandpit beneath it, before arriving at the castle tower.
The castle tower is 4ft square and set at 4ft above the ground to provide the height to accommodate a climbing wall with knotted rope to the left hand side and a slide to the front.
It includes two open door ways to provide access to the slide and climbing wall as well as an unglazed castle style window and a large portcullis window. This ensures perfect visibility all around the tower which lessens the chance of an unseen attack.
The extra height of the castle tower platform also allows the inclusion of a hanging swing seat which provides a lovely spot to sit and rest. We hear that permission to sit here is sometimes granted to Mum and Dad!
All raised platform areas and stairways are protected with balustrade rails.
