Building something for your kids to enjoy can be one of the most enjoyable experiences. I remember when I was a kid building tree houses and forts all the time with my dad. It’s a great way to bond with your kids, but also give them a place to hang out so they aren’t always bothering mom and dad. Now that I’m older weekend DIY projects are something I enjoy to pass the time on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Well this dad wanted to do just that for his daughter when he found out that he was going to be removing a tree from his backyard. Unfortunately, mom put a halt on the whole thing because buying the lumber to make one just wasn’t in the budget. Being the crafty and creative dad he is though, imgur user Janku decided that he would just make due with what he had on hand. What he had on hand was the wood from that tree he was cutting down. Check out this awesome DIY clubhouse this dad made for his daughter!
So here is the dead tree. It has some good size to the trunk and plenty of smaller branches up top but it was a terrible eyesore in the yard.
Janku started out by cutting down the lower hanging branches.
Slowly making his way up the tree. Always be careful when using a ladder. Falling off of them is not fun…
He cut everything off all the way to the top of the tree.
Finally the tree itself was cut down. Some good wood for a DIY project right there.
Janku then sliced up the main trunk of the tree into logs.
The branches were really what Janku wanted in order to create a structure.
They made for great building materials for the shape and structure of the DIY clubhouse.
He erected a little gazebo of sorts for his daughter. This is an extremely simple project that looks like it’s going to pay off big in the end.
