This was the first project I made after we moved house. It’s a pine wooden tower to play my daughters and their friends. The wood has been treated with pressured copper sulfate in order to lasts for years outdoors. I also have given two coats of a preserve gel that I found on the market.

Nice Indeed! I’ll bet the high view inspires a lot of creative kid play.

Great Job –
I love the roof – very ‘Swiss Family Robinson’.
The hole for rope climbers, and the ropes around the support bases are nice touches.

When I first saw it I thought it was a Deer Stand. Good job.

Truly, the ropes around the support bases are nice touches, but their function is to protect the anchors that hold the wooden pillars with iron rods sunk 80 cm in the soil. Thanks for your feedback
