Hi everyone! Meet the lovely Madison, affectionately called Madi. Madi enjoys drawing and painting and she is quite the artist! In the above picture, she is doing what she loves to do in her tree house. I am friends with Madi's parents and first spotted the tree house they built for her when they shared it on facebook. I was very impressed and I am thrilled that they are allowing me to share with you today.
Madi's Dad made this all by hand. Here are the details as told to me by Madi's Mom, LeAnne:
"Jason(Madi's Dad) got all of the materials from Lowes, treated wood siding, wooden shingles, and flooring boards. It took about 2 months over the summer to build. He worked on it after work or on days off. He drew up the plans himself and incorporated a built in desk with shelving above. The two trees were already in place, so he planned the house around them. I love that he did that! Don't you? Madison had been asking for a treehouse for a while, so we decided it would be a great 10th birthday present. Wood panels were also added so Madi could paint a mural and another we painted with chalkboard paint. She loves to play, do crafts and camp out in the treehouse. She has friends over and they spend lots of time there."
wheelchair accessible so Madi can go back and forth with ease. so lovely!

Madi and a friend. Apparently the tree house is a big hit with the children in the neighborhood. I am not surprised! Zion and Ian would be thrilled to have a tree house to call their own. Superb job Jason and LeAnne!
