If you’ve been a reader for a while, you might remember that I’ve hinted in the past about the castle in our backyard – – it’s been done for a few years, but I never blogged about it. So I thought I’d do that today – –
It was like one thing led to another, and before we knew it, we were building this giant structure. But it’s super cool, and is all the talk of anyone who comes over to our house.
And guess what?! …..
get excited, because we’ve put together a VIDEO TOUR – awesome! (this is actually from last year – note how my girls used to have long hair, but they don’t now…)
The “bricks” are coolest and I saw the idea long ago on a blog (if you which one, let me know!) – – it’s old cedar fencing, and each piece was cut and routered to look like a brick. It’s my favorite part. There’s also a turret in the front to climb from one level to another. After my mom almost got stuck in the turret trying to coax a kiddo down from the top level, we added the ladder and slide platform to the back as a secondary way up. There’s a little room on top, complete with a skylight. The two top ends are open.
Trevor even installed hooks to set up our hammock out there – love it:
And that’s our castle! We are moving soon (sniff sniff) and the castle is staying with the house. But they have some kids who I know will love it like we have. Hope you enjoyed the tour!
