Re-tree-t.

Good morning! Did any of you happen to see this amazing story - about a Brooklyn woman who built her own (grown-up) backyard treehouse - last month in the New York Times? I don't know how I missed it, but I'm so glad I happened to find it while browsing online this weekend.


The best part? She did it for just $400. I don't have a backyard myself, but one day, I'd absolutely love to have a treehouse. It seems like it would be the most wonderful place to spend a rainy day.


Read the story, by Steven Kurutz, here. Photos by Trevor Tondro for the New York Times.

PS: Though I was originally planning on starting a holiday gift guide (my first!) today, I had an unexpectedly busy weekend and am going to have to postpone it. For now, I plan on posting the first installment Wednesday morning, continuing on through the following week. I can't wait!

I always wanted a treehouse and I grew up on 5 acres of forest. There was no excuse, right? This looks so amazing. Swoon.

Taylor - It's not too late! If a treehouse like this can exist in New York City, then it can exist anywhere :)

Kassie - I'm so glad! I can't wait to share it!

my dad built me a tiny treehouse when i was little, high in a chinese evergreen oak (the kind where you can peel off the bark into puzzle pieces). it was so rad that i was featured in a newspaper article in the san diego union tribune about DIY treehouses! i used to hang out all day in there reading books and drawing, i loved it so much. i would still do that. : )
