"For the kids" Sure. We won't tell anyone about your awesome man cave.

I actually have one of those too. I have spent the past 10 years carving out my perfect little piece of the world. 2.3 acres of heaven (at least for me).

2.3 acres sounds awfully big for a man cave.

It's just the tradition. Whenever you complete your awesome treehouse and pose for a picture in it, you're supposed to staple pieces of paper to your face.

Very impressive. You should post pics of the inside too.

Not only the coolest, but can establish the super secret club with a secret code to get in!

Wicked treehouse. Curious, because of previous jobs in construction and framing, about what did it cost at the end of the project? I'm not trying to be rude and ask you for your financials or anything, just a ballpark?

All in I'd say 2K or so.

Right on, that's actually pretty good, looking at the finished product. Did you do it yourself or hire out contractors?

I put a playground sized and quality gravel pit in my yard for the outside climbing toys - ranked up there almost to a full 2 grand itself. Without hiring out. Stuff like that gets way expensive, fast.

Nice job! Is it really a tree house when it's bearing its own weight. Which basically makes it a stutted little wooden hut with a (inconvenient) tree through it.

The tree actually takes most of the weight but I didn't want to take any chances with safety so I added those posts after the fact. It is a 8' x 12' structure and weights a couple thousand pounds.

Fair enough! That wasn't clear to me in the picture, good job.

It has its own load bearing structure and doesn't damage the tree. I like that.

There are a couple spikes in the tree itself but nothing that will harm it.
