Well the question is, "What do you see ?" Many people will say a small cabin with a red roof. A dead tree with the top gone out of it. But that's just what IS in the picture. If you use your imagination in situations like this...
Main platform support structor
Elevator - 2' by 2' by 6' tall unit.
Main vertical/guide supports
Anchoring of vertical/guide supports
Garage door track rails
Electric Hoisting mechanism and controls
Safety fall safe cable
Attach lower 2 by 8 rough sawn oak planks notched into tree limbs
Install socket and guide tube for main pipe safety harness anchor point
Attach safety line and harness slide for work
Second level of 2 by 8 oak plank and diagonal bracing to tree trunk
Assembly of vertical elevator supports and track rails
Attachment of vertical supports to second level oak planks
Placement of temporary base mount for electric hoist on top of vertical
Install elevator box with fall safe retractable cable
So this will be a good start to this project. It will keep me busy while I wait for the logs to dry out before it get back to the cabin and do the chinking to finish it off.
Other sub-parts of the Treehouse Project that will be the subject of future posts.
