Good News--the clubhouse is no longer just an idea. Here's how it happened over the summer, as probably one of our most successful fun activties.
-Ballerina helped tear down a bridge, and was given the lumber
-Earlybird and Ballerina finalized the location.
-A few days later, building began
The first boards, which were nailed to trees, were originally planned to support a roof. Since there were three trees, Horselover added a post the fourth corner would be. From there, a decison was made to upgrade the roof to a deck, and the club worked to create a stable deck
-The deck portion of the clubhouse was completely finished
We're not sure how the rest of our clubhouse will take shape, but we have two options--we could build a room on the deck with a manually retractable tarp roof and horizontal plywood walls, or we could use the deck as a roof and build walls. We will hopefully choose and start on an option this week!8) Expected finish date: Before the snow flies!
