This post is the backend story of how this treehouse came to be. I aptly named it Adirondack Treehouse Roots to signify its beginning dating back to 2006.
Tom had the supplies and was about to build a shed when his young boys asked when they were going to get their treehouse. Tom quickly aborted the shed idea and went to work on the tree house. The boys worked hard alongside their dad and within two weeks the treehouse was complete with porch and circular stairs fully supported high in the trees.
But over the years the tree supports began to rot away and the boys no longer had much interest in hanging out at the tree house. The economy also tanked during this time and those who were especially hard hit were the small businesses across America. As a result many had no choice but to close their doors. This is so unfortunate to the communities that relied on small businesses to keep their towns and villages humming along.
When one door almost closes; another opens. So, as Tom’s chair business slowed he had another idea; save the tree house and open it to others who want the experience a treehouse can give.
Tom quickly set to work digging footings through tree roots and setting posts to give the tree house that solid feel. He ran electric so there would be plenty of lighting along with an outdoor kitchen complete with microwave, refrigerator and large seating area so guests could feel at home. And there’s even hot and cold running water making clean up a breeze.
Another comfort of home was also added; a brand new bathroom which makes the tree house experience a bit easier for anyone still on the fence.
