The Riley Treehouse

Before it got cold and while the whole West Palm Beach Clan was in town, we stopped by Wife Lila’s sister’s house for some good backyard cookin’. Don and Marty Riley have a much-climbed tree in their backyard that they turned into a really cool treehouse.

I saw in Internet definition: “Tree houses, treehouses, or tree forts, are platforms or buildings constructed around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level. Tree houses can be used for recreation, work space, habitation, observation or as temporary retreats.”

Sure sounds right to me.

This is a cut above the treehouse I built in the side lot walnut tree when I was about ten. It was a platform only about three by three 30 feet up in the air. Even I had enough sense not to get out on the end of it, and that’s when I weighed about 28 pounds. Click on any photo to make it larger, then click on the left or right side to move through the gallery. That’s Grandson Malcolm, by the way, on the swing. He gave it his approval.
