Beautiful Saturday Morning.. tree deck

The cold windy morning .. but as the day worn on .. it gotten warmer.

Task at hand was to finish the tree deck or get as much done as we could before sunset. First the rail framing and building the connecting bride from the deck to the tree deck.

The sides of the railing are 1 x4 industrial grade strips. They are spaced 3 inch apart.. and sits 48 inch high.

The picture below is the 4 x 6 douglas fir beam hanging between the tree deck and double post column. We used all-thread with fender washer and nuts on
both ends. We will be blocking under the beam later. This thing is really rigid.

The north railing side was set higher to prevent little climbers onto the swing beam.

Picture below of all the finished railing walls. There are spaces open to attach the climbing wall, the slide and the ladder. The extra wood material came in
handy today .. as we ran out of lumber that we ordered.

The first swing piece was hung this evening as a test fit.

The bridge from the deck to the tree deck

The tree .. we decided we are going to build a table around the tree .. for activity. Next weeks task

sunsets from the decks

Along day on the decks and running for supplies. Couldn't have done this job without the carpenter and his helpers.
