Did you ever have a treehouse?

My wife and I drove by a house the other day that had a big fancy treehouse in the back. (It was on a corner lot so we saw it from the side, just in case you're wondering.)

It started a conversation about treehouses, and the requirements for one. You basically had to have...

...a kid who wants one, which is an easy requirement if there's a kid since all kids want one.

...a big tree with the right shape that's in an accessible location and not over a road or anything.

...generally a parent who is handy.

...a parent who actually has the time and interest to build a treehouse.

...probably a homeowning family that has the stability to afford a treehouse and live in the home long enough to justify the construction cost and effort.

We decided that this combination is rare, so treehouses are rare. My wife was also skeptical of my claim that nearly all boys want a treehouse growing up, as opposed to nearly all girls wanting a horse. But that's another issue.

Did you have a treehouse as a kid?

Poll coming as soon as I can nail in the boards.

I'm not sure that was a viable plan anyway, if it makes you feel better.

Sec
The property not just the tree house
I bet they immediately took down the "No gurlz allowed" sign off the treehouse door.

Me and my cousin built it on my grandparents land. years later we would sneak out and use it to smoke pot at thanksgiving. It was a strong platform, with railings, no roof.

Lived on 5 acres in Wyandotte county. I built a two story walled tree house. You accessed the second story thru a hatch in the roof of the first floor. Spent most of my time chasing other neighborhood kids out of it. Had some valuable "reading" material in it.

I'm learning in this thread that there's a strong connection between treehouses and pornography.

Your scope is incorrect. The real correlation is between adolescent boys and pornography.
