My husband and son test out the floor
Originally we had planned for a full two stories then once we realized just how big it was going to be we revised it to a loft.
Taking shape, complete with crooked window There is also a thin window we placed on the back wall that was installed horizontally in addition to another side window.
Windows and doors added. All windows/doors were salvaged from the Habitat for Humanity which greatly reduced the cost. the brown door we actually trimmed to act as another window. The shutters were a perfect find and open up wide to allow for a nice breeze and to play store/restaurant games.
The kids help water some of the new landscaping. All of which I purchased at the year end clearance for 50% off. I selected plants that would attract butterfly's and birds and act as a sensory garden including soft pussy willows and bright flowering plants like Blacked eyed Susans that will come up again year after year.
The Tin roof is added. We opted for tin as it actually reflects heat making it cooler inside - although any time a acorn falls from our Oaks we hear a PING! My husband also adds a pergola detail to the opposite side of the deck to add some balance. Board and batten was used for the swinging front doors also to reduce cost but ended up adding pretty barn like detail.
